1k view

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) is calling on Hillary Clinton to retract comments claiming that the Democratic presidential candidate is a favorite candidate "of the Russians."

"Your statement is defamatory, and we demand that you retract it immediately," Gabbard's lawyer wrote in a letter, which has been posted to Twitter.

Gabbard is requesting Clinton verbally retract her comments and also post a retraction on Twitter.

While appearing on a podcast in October  Clinton called Gabbard the "favorite of the Russians," and added that Gabbard’s being groomed for a third-party bid. 

Clinton additionally referred to Jill Stein as "also a Russian asset. Yeah, she's a Russian asset, I mean totally."

The Hill reports that Clinton’s spokesman has declined to comment on the letter.
