Gabbard Drops $50M Defamation Suit Against Hillary

Reuters reports:

Tulsi Gabbard, a U.S. congresswoman from Hawaii, dropped a lawsuit against the Democratic Party’s former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for defamation on Wednesday, according to a court filing.

The complaint filed at a New York federal court in January sought at least $50 million in damages from Clinton for harming the reputation of then Democratic presidential hopeful Gabbard by saying Russians were grooming one of the Democratic presidential candidates for a third-party bid.

Gabbard and her campaign filed a notice of dismissal that said they “remain certain of the action’s legal merit” but wished to focus on the coronavirus crisis and “defeating Donald Trump in 2020, rather than righting the wrongs here.”

Last week Trump called her “Kelsey Gabbert.”
