Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Sues Hillary Clinton For Defamation

NBC News reports:

Presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) sued Hillary Clinton for defamation in federal court in Manhattan on Wednesday, claiming Clinton lied about her to harm her campaign.

“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.

She alleges that Clinton’s comments have cost her more than $50 million in personal and professional damages.
