Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard sued Hillary Clinton in federal court this week over baseless allegations the lawmaker was covertly working with the Russian government to subvert the 2020 presidential election.
“Presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) sued Hillary Clinton for defamation in federal court in Manhattan on Wednesday, claiming Clinton intentionally lied about a Gabbard connection to Russia to hurt her campaign,” reports NBC New York. “Though the Clinton and Gabbard camps have been at odds for years, the suit hinges on comments the former Secretary of State made on a podcast late last year, when she suggested that Gabbard was Russia’s pick in this year’s election.”
“Clinton falsely stated that Tulsi—an Army National Guard officer and United States Congresswoman who has spent her entire adult life serving this country—is a ‘Russian asset.’ Clinton’s false assertions were made in a deliberate attempt to derail Tulsi’s presidential campaign,” Gabbard said in the suit.

ENOUGH: Tulsi Gabbard Calls Hillary Clinton ‘Queen of Warmongers, Embodiment of Corruption’
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard unloaded on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the weekend; blasting the failed presidential candidate as the “queen of warmongers” after she labeled the Representative a “Russian Agent.”
“Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you,” posted Gabbard on social media.
… powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose.
It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton left millions of Americans scratching their heads Friday; subtly implying Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is a covert “Russian asset” sent to ensure President Trump’s re-election in 2020.
“They are also going to do third party again,” Clinton said.
“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,” she told the ‘Campaign HQ’ podcast.
“She is a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and ways of supporting her so far. That’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she is also a Russian asset,” Hillary added.
While not referring to her directly by name, Gabbard was recently mentioned in a New York Times article implying she was colluding with the Kremlin.
“The New York Times and CNN have also smeared veterans like myself for calling for an end to this regime change war [in Syria]. Just two days ago, The New York Times put out an article saying that I’m a Russian asset and an Assad apologist, and all these different smears,” Gabbard said during Tuesday’s Democratic debate.

GABBARD ON HANNITY: ‘War Should Always Be a Last Resort’
Democratic presidential hopeful Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard spoke with Sean Hannity Thursday night; slamming Hillary Clintons “war-mongering” foreign policy after she smeared her as a “Russian asset.”
“She’s basically accusing you of being a traitor… Slander is a big deal, your reaction?” asked Hannity.
“I’m proud to wear the uniform of this country… I’ve been deployed twice to the Middle East. I’ve seen first-hand the terribly high human cost of war. My job in Iraq was working in a field medical unit,” said Gabbard.
“Those of us who have seen the cost of war, we fight for peace. We’re not pacifists, sometimes war is necessary. But we see that war should always be a last resort. Hillary Clinton’s not only calling me a traitor, she’s sending a warning out to every veteran, anyone who stands up against war-mongering foreign policies,” she added.
