Tulsi Gabbard Is Suing Hillary Clinton for Defamation
Tulsi Gabbard Is Suing Hillary Clinton for Defamation The Hawaii congresswoman's lawsuit claims she has suffered damages estimated in excess of $50 million. The suit alleges former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied about Gabbard's ties to Russia during a 2019 podcast interview. Clinton said she felt one female candidate was being "groomed" to be a third-party candidate. Clinton would go on to label this person as a "favorite" of the Russians. When later asked if Clinton was referring to Gabbard, Clinton's spokesman, Nick Merrill, replied, "If the nesting doll fits." While it's unclear if the lawsuit stands a chance of succeeding, the news puts Gabbard back into the headlines. The Democratic presidential candidate will likely need as much publicity as possible ahead of the Iowa caucuses in February.
