Hillary Clinton has problems dealing with reality and responsibility.
As we saw after she lost the 2016 election, she couldn’t seem to accept the loss, blaming everyone else for it from Russians to misogynistic voters, as opposed to her failure to find Wisconsin or actually have any concrete plans to offer the American people.
Well, it sounds like she’s not able to accept responsibility for her attacks on Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) either.
Gabbard sued her for $50 million for defamation for implying that Tulsi is a “Russian asset.”
But according to the New York Post, it turns out that Clinton is using the taxpayer paid Secret Service to run blocker for her to refuse service of process, according to Gabbard’s attorney.
According to Brian Dunne, the Secret Service blocked a process server from serving Clinton at her home in Chappaqua on Tuesday. The Secret Service advised the server to serve Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall, with the firm of Williams and Connelly.
But then they refused the service as well, according to Dunne.
“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 Post. “But I guess here we are.”
Dunne said that they were considering their next steps.
This is just childish to refuse the service. Because whether or not you accept it, there are options to get around that, such as by leaving it with someone or where you are likely to see it with certified mail. So you can’t avoid the suit by not accepting service.
But it’s symptomatic of Clinton in general. She could have avoided this by an apology or presented her evidence to support her claim. But she chose to do neither.
From Washington Examiner:
Clinton’s remarks about Gabbard angered many who felt she crossed a line by claiming the Kremlin was “grooming” Gabbard to run a third-party bid that could sink Democrats and lead to reelection for President Trump. Sen. Bernie Sanders called Clinton’s comments “outrageous.” Facing backlash, Clinton claimed she meant the GOP was “grooming Tulsi, not Russia.”
Gabbard, who is running to be the Democratic nominee for president, jabbed Clinton’s failed 2016 campaign in the text of the lawsuit, which read, “Tulsi Gabbard is running for president of the United States, a position Clinton has long coveted, but has not been able to attain.”
