Clinton flunkies, diehard supporters and others that would sell their souls or sell-out their own mothers for Hillary Clinton, are rushing to defend her against the bad press from a lawsuit filed against her for defamation by congresswoman and Democrat presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, after Clinton publicly implied Gabbard was a "Russian Asset."
First and foremost, to make it crystal clear, Gabbard, like all the other Democrat candidates is far to the left of conservatives. While she may go against party line from time to time, and she is definitely not afraid of going after Clinton, which she did quite succinctly when she called Hillary Clinton the "queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic party," after Clinton suggested Gabbard was being "groomed" as a third party candidate, as well as a "Russian asset."
A look at her stances on issues are a gravitation toward socialism and communism, hers is just a slower pull than Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, so no Republican in their right mind, should ever consider voting for Gabbard.
With that said, there is something entertaining and uplifting about watching a Democrat go after and take on Hillary Clinton, to the point where Clinton flunkies, like those over at The Atlantic, rushed to publish articles defending Clinton and claiming that Tulsi is suing Clinton just "for attention."
While the writer, David Frum, is listed as a "Republican," he supported Hillary Clinton in 2016, and is on the record as writing a piece titled "The Conservative Case for Voting for Clinton."
So, either he was infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome or he is a RINO (Republican In Name Only), because no true conservative would ever, ever, support Hillary Clinton.
In the Atlantic piece, the writer David Frum, offers Clinton's initial statements implying Gabbard was a Russian asset, but neglects to inform readers of the entire context of those remarks, nor the follow up answer by Clinton's own spokesperson Nick Merrill.
By February 2019, the liberal establishment media were already suggesting that the "Russian propaganda machine that tried to influence the 2016 U.S. election is now promoting the presidential aspirations of a controversial Hawaii Democrat who earlier this month declared her intention to run for president in 2020."
NBC went on to directly name Tulsi Gabbard:
An NBC News analysis of the main English-language news sites employed by Russia in its 2016 election meddling shows Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, who is set to make her formal announcement Saturday, has become a favorite of the sites Moscow used when it interfered in 2016.
Throughout 2019, the media continued to make such claims, right up until October 2019, when Hillary Clinton, without using Gabbard's name directly, made comments that the establishment media, liberals, conservatives and pretty much everyone else knew referred to Gabbard, during an interview with David Plouffe, who was Barack Obama's 2008 campaign manager, where she said the following:
"[The Republicans] are also going to do third-party again, and I'm not making any predictions but I think they've got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She is a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. And, that's assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she's also a Russian asset. Yeah, she's a Russian asset. Totally."
As can be seen in the CBS News clip below from back in October 2019, everyone knew exactly who Clinton was talking about.
Granted, Clinton did not use Gabbard's name directly, but when Clinton spokesman, Nick Merrill was asked later about it, his answer was clear, stating "This is not some outlandish claim. This is reality. If the Russian propaganda machine, both their state media and their bot and troll operations, is backing a candidate aligned with their interests, that is just a reality, it is not speculation."
The 14 page lawsuit, embedded below, drags Hillary Clinton brutally, starting with the first paragraph which highlights Clinton's failed attempts at becoming President, by stating "Tulsi Gabbard is running for President of the United States, a position Clinton has long coveted, but has not been able to attain."
On page #2, Gabbard's complaint described Clinton as a "cutthroat politician by any account," which to those that have been following the random and suspicious deaths of people that threatened the Clinton's political empire, is quite the statement.
On page#4, the complaint also highlights Clinton's failed presidential aspirations, describing Clinton's political history, stating "Clinton also ran for president in 2008, but she failed to secure the Democratic Party nomination. In both the 2008 and the 2016 presidential elections, Clinton was the clear frontrunner, but she ultimately lost in surprise upsets (first to President Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential primary, then to President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election).
On page #10, the complaint claims that "Clinton has not gotten over her loss" of the 2016 presidential election, an election where Gabbard backed Bernie Sanders, and stepped down from the DNC to do so publicly.
44. In February 2016, Tulsi was the Vice Chair of the DNC. She publicly backed Senator Sanders (over Clinton) for President, and she was the highest profile Congressperson to do so at the time. Clinton was extremely angry—to put it mildly—that Tulsi endorsed Senator Sanders over her. Clinton’s agents emailed Tulsi to tell her that the Clinton team “no longer trust[s] [Tulsi’s] judgment,” and Tulsi was told that the Clinton team would never forget this slight. Among other things, Clinton’s agents relayed that the Clinton team will refuse to assist Tulsi in any of her campaigns. These agents then forwarded this correspondence to Huma Abedin (Clinton’s closest aide) and John Podesta (chairman of Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign) to gloat about the beatdown they felt they delivered on Tulsi, writing “Hammer dropped!” It has been widely reported by news sources that Clinton is known to keep long-time grudges, even going as far as maintaining “for-me and against-me databases” and scoring degrees of treachery for those that have crossed her.
On January 23, 2020, Gabbard issued a statement about the lawsuit:
While no true conservative would ever vote for Tulsi Gabbard or any of the present-day Democrat politicians, all rushing so far to the left that socialism and communism is clear in almost all their proposals and stances on the issues, it is a breath of fresh air every time Gabbard takes on the DNC and now going directly after Hillary Clinton.
As Stefan pointed out to me when I mentioned this lawsuit and that Tulsi Gabbard was going after Hillary Clinton,Gabbard has more guts than almost every member of Congress, although I admit he did use a different word than "guts."
Just gotta love seeing Democrats eat their own!
