NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard filed a lawsuit Wednesday against Hillary Clinton for defamation.

The Hawaiian congresswoman says Clinton cost her $50 million in damages for calling her a "Russian asset".

Gabbard alleges that in October 2019, she and the America's democracy suffered due to Cinton's lies.

"Whether out of personal animus, political enmity, or fear of real change within a political party Clinton and her allies have long dominated—Clinton lied about her perceived rival Tulsi Gabbard. She did so publicly, unambiguously, and with obvious malicious intent."

The suit continues to say that despite knowing that crossing Clinton could hurt her political career, Gabbard publicly endorsed Bernie Sanders as her choice for Democratic presidential candidate.

It then alleged that "Clinton (who considered herself the “inevitable nominee”) ... —a cutthroat politician by any account—has never forgotten this perceived slight." 

Gabbard alleges that Clinton’s false assertions were deliberatly made as an attempt to derail Tulsi’s presidential campaign.
