This is shocking.

According to The Daily Wire, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) recently announced she had filed a defamation lawsuit against Hillary Clinton for her previous claim where she called Gabbard a “Russian asset.”

In a press release published to Gabbard’s campaign website, Gabbard claimed Clinton “deliberately and maliciously made false statements in an attempt to derail Rep. Gabbard’s campaign.” Clinton made the remarks during an interview, saying, “somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary … [is a] favorite of the Russians… Yeah, she’s a Russian asset.”

The lawsuit itself states that Clinton possibly made the remarks “out of personal animus, political enmity, or fear of real change within a political party Clinton and her allies have long dominated.” They allege Clinton lied about Gabbard “publicly, unambiguously, and with obvious malicious intent” and that the claims have harmed Gabbard.

The lawsuit also calls Clinton “a cutthroat politician by any account,” who held a grudge against Gabbard because the Hawaiian politician endorsed Clinton’s presidential rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders. You can read the full article here.
