Hillary Is Dodging Gabbard’s Defamation Lawsuit

Leah Barkoukis

Hillary Clinton is using Secret Service to dodge Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s $50 million defamation lawsuit, which she filed after the former secretary of state implied she was a “Russian asset.”

“I find it rather unbelievable that Hillary Clinton is so intimidated by Tulsi Gabbard that she won’t accept service of process,” the congresswoman’s attorney, Brian Dunne, told The New York Post. “But I guess here we are.”

Dunne said their process server first attempted to effect service at Clinton’s house in Chappaqua on Tuesday afternoon — but was turned away by Secret Service agents.

The agents directed the server to Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, who on Wednesday claimed at his Washington, DC, firm, Williams & Connolly, that he was unable to accept service on Clinton’s behalf, said Dunne. (New York Post)

Gabbard filed the lawsuit months after Clinton made the comments on a podcast with former Obama adviser David Plouffe. Although she did not name Gabbard, it was obvious who she was talking about.

“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’s the favorite of the Russians,” Hillary Clinton to @davidplouffe http://bit.ly/32sW4gn

Impeachment. Facing Trump. Debates. No one has a more unique perspective on these ripe topics than Hillary Clinton. Hear her take on these issues and the 2020 election.

“She’s the favorite of the Russians, they have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far, and – that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not, because she is also a Russian asset — yeah, she’s a Russian asset! I mean totally!” the former secretary of state said.

Clinton has refused to retract her comments.

“Tulsi Gabbard is running for President of the United States, a position Clinton has long coveted, but has not been able to attain,” last week’s Manhattan federal lawsuit reads. “In October 2019 — whether out of personal animus, political enmity, or fear of real change within a political party Clinton and her allies have long dominated — Clinton lied about her perceived rival Tulsi Gabbard. She did so publicly, unambiguously, and with obvious malicious intent.”

The court papers call Gabbard a “loyal American servant” who is not controlled by “Russia or anyone else.”
