A participant in the President's race, Gabbard, sued Hillary Clinton for slander

Tulsi Gabbard, a participant in the presidential race in the United States, sued Hillary Clinton, the former rival of the current head of state Donald Trump in the 2016 election campaign for defamation. Earlier, the wife of the former White House owner, former U.S. President Bill Clinton accused the applicant of ties with the Russians.

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 “favorite of the Russians”, 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,” reads a statement of claim posted on Gabbard's campaign website.

In October, Clinton in an interview with Campaign HQ called Gabbard “the favorite candidate of the Russians,” and Green Party candidate Jill Stein — “an agent of the Russians. Both candidates expressed outrage at Clinton's statements, calling her “a war activist and an emblem of corruption. “The 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,” the statement said.

By filing an honor and dignity suit, Gabbard lawyers explain, she intends to “hold 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 “Russian capital” were an attempt to “obstruct Tulsi's presidential campaign” and “damage her reputation. The plaintiffs argue that “Clinton's conspiracy theory has no confirmation” and demand “compensation 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.
