Earlier this month, former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was hit with a $50 million lawsuit by 2020 candidate Tulsi Gabbard, who says Clinton insinuated she’s a “Russian asset” during a radio interview in December.
But it seems like Clinton and her team are looking to slow down or stop the process of being served her legal papers.
According to Fox News, Gabbard’s lawyer — Brian Dunne — said that “Secret Service agents turned away a process server Tuesday when the server tried to deliver the lawsuit to Clinton’s home in Chappaqua, N.Y., north of New York City.”
And when they tried to redirect the papers to Clinton’s lawyer in Washington — David Kendall of Williams & Connolly — they rejected it as well.
“I find it rather unbelievable that Hillary Clinton is so intimidated by Tulsi Gabbard that she won’t accept service of process,” Dunne told the New York Post. “But I guess here we are.”
Dunne said that his team is looking to take actions to the next level very soon.
Gabbard claims that the former secretary of state used smear tactics against her campaign, deeming it an attempt to suppress her free speech.
“I have dedicated my entire adult life to serving our country,” said Gabbard said. “And for Hillary Clinton and her powerful allies to attempt to smear me and accuse me — really implying that I’m a traitor to the country that I love — is something that I cannot allow to go unchecked.”
