Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has reportedly blocked two attempts by process servers looking to deliver the defamation lawsuit that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) filed against her last week.
Gabbard’s lawyer, Brian Dunne, said to the New York Post that he is shocked by Clinton’s flagrant disrespect for the law.
“I find it rather unbelievable that Hillary Clinton is so intimidated by Tulsi Gabbard that she won’t accept service of process,” Dunne said. “But I guess here we are.”
Dunne said that Secret Service officials intervened to stop Clinton from being served at her Chappaqua, New York home on Tuesday. A day later, a Clinton lawyer rebuffed the process server in Washington D.C. at a law firm after the Secret Service instructed the serve to deliver the lawsuit to Clinton there.
Gabbard filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Clinton last week after Clinton made comments on a podcast implying that Gabbard was a Russian asset without providing any evidence.
“If Hillary Clinton and her allies can successfully destroy my reputation — even though I’m a war veteran and a sitting member of Congress — then they can do it to anybody,” Mrs. Gabbard said in a statement about her lawsuit. “I will not allow this blatant effort to intimidate me and other patriotic Americans into silence go unchallenged.”
Clinton may have gotten more than she bargained for after she made thinly-veiled comments denigrating Gabbard on former Obama adviser David Plouffe’s podcast in Oct. 2019.
“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,” Clinton said, obviously referring to Gabbard. “She’s the favorite of the Russians.”
“They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far,” Clinton added. She also compared Gabbard to Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential candidate in 2016 who Democrats often claim is affiliated with the Russians.
Gabbard immediately hit Clinton back for her comments.
“Great! Thank you, Hillary Clinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain,” Gabbard wrote in a blistering response issued on many different social media platforms.
“From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose,” she added.
Although Gabbard remains near the bottom of the polls in her run for the Democrat presidential nomination, she continues to make waves by challenging the establishment orthodoxy of her party. She has clearly triggered Clinton, whose public rage against Gabbard has given the quixotic outsider a great deal of publicity.
President Donald Trump Urges House Republicans to Vote Against Re-Authorizing FISA Secret Courts
Trump has learned the right lesson from the Russian collusion madness.
President Donald Trump is pushing back against the deep state by urging House Republicans to reject the re-authorization of the FISA secret court system.
He made the announcement in a tweet issued on Tuesday evening.
I hope all Republican House Members vote NO on FISA until such time as our Country is able to determine how and why the greatest political, criminal, and subversive scandal in USA history took place!

The Russian collusion investigation was made possible due to the FISA secret courts, which essentially rubber-stamped all kinds of illicit spying on the President and his associates.
The FISA court threw the FBI under the bus in the aftermath of the Russia-gate farce that exposed the treachery of the federal government:
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court issued a sharp rebuke of the FBI on Tuesday, accusing them of “so many basic and fundamental errors” in filing the surveillance application for former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the OIG report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Rosemary Collyer, presiding judge with the FISC, wrote in an order to the FBI released by the court…
Inspector General Michael Horowitz detailed a comedy of errors from an FBI that has proven itself to be ridiculously incompetent or malicious in its attempts to pin Russian collusion on President Trump and his close associates.
Collyer said that the report has presented “troubling instances in which FBI personnel provided information to NSD [the National Security Division of the Justice Department] which was unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession.”
“The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable,” Collyer wrote.
“The FISC expects the government to provide complete and accurate information in every filing with the Court. Without it, the FISC cannot properly ensure that the government conducts electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes only when there is a sufficient factual basis,” she added.
President Trump has come out against FISA after many talks with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who has been leading the charge against the unconstitutional secret court system since long before Russia-gate.
“It flies in the face of our Constitution that a secret court can authorize invading an innocent American’s privacy. Recent months have once again made all too clear how such a system leads to abuse. It’s time for Congress to stop paying lip service to reform and pass real safeguards that respect Americans’ rights. What happened to General Flynn and President Trump should never be allowed to happen again,” Paul said earlier this year.
The House is expected to vote on FISA re-authorization Wednesday morning. President Trump hopes that his words can influence Republicans into doing the right thing and pushing back against an intelligence community that has clearly run amok.
