Gabbard sues Clinton for defamation

Image result for eating their own cartoonRep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) on Wednesday filed a defamation lawsuit against Hillary Clinton, accusing the former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee of smearing her by suggesting she was a “Russian asset.”

“I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said on a 2019 podcast with former Obama adviser David Plouffe. “She’s the favorite of the Russians.”

Clinton did not name Gabbard, but the lawsuit said the Hawaii congresswoman suffered damages of more than $50 million.

Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill called the lawsuit “ridiculous.”
