Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-CA) explained why on Thursday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” she was suing Hillary Clinton for defamation.
For me, as a soldier, as every service member does, I took an oath of loyalty to our country.
The essence of this service, this love of country, is who I am.”
She added, “So when you have someone as powerful as Hillary Clinton seeking to smear my reputation, essentially implying that I’m a traitor to the country that I love, what she essentially is doing is taking my life away.
So what this lawsuit is about is actually valuing the honor and the loyalty and integrity that every one of our service members embodies and saying that no one can try to defame them.
