Remember that time Hillary Clinton called a presidential candidate in her own party a Russian asset, and then everyone had a good chortle and ate scones and jam together? No? Well, neither does the aforementioned presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, who's now suing Clinton for defamation and $50 million for her thoughts last fall, report the Hill and CNBC. "Tulsi Gabbard is a loyal American civil servant who has also dedicated her life to protecting the safety of all Americans," her lawyer says in a statement.

While citing "momentum" in her political campaign, he says Gabbard "has seen her political and personal reputation smeared and her candidacy intentionally damaged by Clinton's malicious and demonstrably false remarks." Gabbard claims Clinton's comments were revenge for the Hawaii rep having endorsed Bernie Sanders in the 2016 election. (Clinton is just lobbing inter-party grenades left and right these days.)
