Gabbard filed the lawsuit against Clinton earlier this month over the former secretary’s claim that Gabbard is a Russian asset, as IJR has previously reported.
However, Gabbard’s attorney Brian Dunne said that attempts to serve Clinton with the lawsuit had failed twice, according to the New York Post.
Dunne said the server attempted to deliver the paperwork at Clinton’s home in Chappaqua, New York, but Secret Services agents turned the server away. Attempts to deliver the paperwork to Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall, also failed when Kendall said he couldn’t receive the lawsuit for Clinton.
“I find it rather unbelievable that Hillary Clinton is so intimidated by Tulsi Gabbard that she won’t accept service of process. But I guess here we are,” Dunne told the Post.
Gabbard’s suit claims that Clinton’s statement from October 2019 harmed her reputation and her political campaign, and argues that Clinton “got exactly what she wanted by lying about Tulsi.”
In a statement explaining her decision to sue Clinton, Gabbard said, “I will not allow this blatant effort to intimidate me or other patriotic Americans into silence to go unchallenged. This is why I filed a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton.”
Dunne told the Post his team is discussing how to move forward since Clinton has refused to accept the lawsuit.
