Tulsi Gabbard lawyer demanding retraction from Hillary Clinton over ‘defamatory’ Russian asset smear


A lawyer for presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is demanding that Hillary Clinton retract her “defamatory” comments alleging that the anti-war Democrat is a Russian asset and Moscow’s “favorite” for the 2020 election.

In a letter to Clinton seen by the Hill, Gabbard’s legal counsel said Clinton “knew it was false” when she accused the Hawaii congresswoman of being a Russian asset. “Your statement is defamatory, and we demand that you retract it immediately,” Gabbard’s lawyer wrote in the letter, demanding a verbal response from Clinton.

Gabbard has taken a strong stance against Clinton’s recent claim on the Campaign HQ podcast that she was “the favorite of the Russians” and that they are “grooming” her to run as a third-party disruptor candidate. Clinton did not mention Gabbard by name, but it was understood in the context of the conversation who she was referring to — and the claim was instantly picked up by mainstream news organizations. A Clinton spokesperson even confirmed that her comments were in relation to Gabbard on CNN the next day.

6 Comments on Tulsi Gabbard lawyer demanding retraction from Hillary Clinton over ‘defamatory’ Russian asset smear

  1. Well, if we’re going to rely on media “history”, did learned counsel miss all the “I lie. Get over it.” posters, from just a few years ago?

  2. Our wimpy DOJ is afraid of Hillary and shaking in their pants. So it will have to be someone outside Washington to give her a slap in the chops.

  3. Careful what you demand. You may get more than you wanted (can you say “Arkancide”, boys and girls? I knew you could)

  4. Who’s helping Tulsi square off with Hellary? It’s like watching a Godfather sequel starring blood thirsty feminists.
