In a report from Fox Business with Neil Cavuto, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is suing Hillary Clinton for $50 million alleging defamation over claims that Gabbard is a Russian asset.

Video Transcript

Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard: She and her minions are trying to smear me, smear my character, and undermine my campaign, labeling me as a foreign agent, as a trader to my country.

Neil Cavuto: So, now she’s suing. Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard filing a $50 million lawsuit against Hillary Clinton for defamation. Hillary Vaugn has the very latest, Hillary.

Hillary Vaughn: Hey Neil, well Hillary Clinton still is not running for president but she is still stirring the pot in the Democratic primary by firing shots at candidates still in the race and now her meddling could end up costing her millions after Tulsi Gabbard filed a $50 million lawsuit against Clinton for saying this:

Hillary Clinton: She’s a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. And, that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she’s also a Russian asset. Yeah, she’s a Russian asset.

Vaughn: In the lawsuit filed today, Gabbard says Clinton has a personal vendetta against her because she endorsed Bernie Sanders in 2016, so she’s accusing Clinton of defamation that cost her millions in potential donors and also potential voters, writing in the lawsuit, “Clinton got exactly what she wanted by lying about Tulsi, she harmed her political and personal rival’s reputation and ongoing presidential campaign and started a damaging whisper campaign based on baseless, but vicious, untruths.”

We reached out to Clinton’s spokesperson for comment and are awaiting a response, but Clinton also fired fresh attacks against Bernie Sanders, saying in a new documentary, “nobody likes him.” Clinton is brushing off her Bernie blast tweeting last night, she thought everyone wanted her “authentic and unvarnished views,” but Neil, some of those views may be getting her into trouble in court.

Cavuto: Alright Hillary, thank you very much…
