The candidate for the nomination from the Democratic Party in the election filed a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton for the fact that she had earlier called her вЂњfavorite of the RussiansвЂќ, the politician estimated the damage caused to her at $50 million, and the text of the lawsuit filed in New York court Tulsi Gabbard posted on her website January 22.
"Tulsey Gabbard is elected president of the United States, a position that Clinton has long wanted, but could not take. In October 2019, due to personal dislike, political rivalry, out of fear of real change in the political party, which has long been dominated by Clinton and her allies, (Hillary) Clinton deceived her rival Tulsey Gabbard. She did it publicly, unequivocally and with obviously malicious intent. Tulsey suffered from Clinton's lies, and American democracy also suffered from them,вЂќ reads a statement of claim posted on Gabbard's campaign website.
In October, Clinton in an interview with Campaign HQ called Gabbard вЂњthe favorite candidate of the Russians,вЂќ and Green Party candidate Jill Stein вЂ” вЂњan agent of the Russians. Both candidates expressed outrage at Clinton's statements, calling her вЂњa war activist and an emblem of corruption. вЂњThe slanderous statements led to the loss of Tulsi to potential donors and voters who heard them. Tulsi, both personally and professionally, suffered substantial damage estimated at approximately $50 million and continues to grow today,вЂќ the statement said.
By filing an honor and dignity suit, Gabbard lawyers explain, she intends to вЂњhold Clinton and her supportive political elite accountable for distorting the truth in the midst of a presidential race. According to the text of the statement, Clinton's false claims that Gabbard is вЂњRussian capitalвЂќ were an attempt to вЂњobstruct Tulsi's presidential campaignвЂќ and вЂњdamage her reputation. The plaintiffs argue that вЂњClinton's conspiracy theory has no confirmationвЂќ and demand вЂњcompensation for the damage and a ban on further publication of Clinton's defamatory statements.
Tulsi Gabbard is 38 years old, a member of the U.S. National Guard in the rank of major, served in the Middle East from 2003 to 2010 and is a fourth term member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Hawaii.
Presidential elections in the United States will be held on November 3 this year. The main candidate for this post according to various polls remains the current head of the White House, Republican Donald Trump.
