On Thursday morning, Hillary Clinton decided to weigh in on the impeachment trial of President Trump, tweeting this deathless quote: “In America, no one is above the law.”

Clinton’s tweet was in reference to the impeachment trial of President Trump; her full tweet read, “Richard Nixon once made this argument:‘When the president does it, that means that it is not illegal.’ He was forced to resign in disgrace. In America, no one is above the law.”

But also on Thursday this tidbit of news was released to the public: Tulsi Gabbard’s attorney, Brian Dunne, stated that Clinton has twice refused to accept the legal documents that a process server attempted to deliver to her from the defamation lawsuit filed against her by Gabbard.

Dunne told The New York Post,  “I find it rather unbelievable that Hillary Clinton is so intimidated by Tulsi Gabbard that she won’t accept service of process. But I guess here we are.”

The Post added, “Dunne said their process server first attempted to effect service at Clinton’s house in Chappaqua on Tuesday afternoon — but was turned away by Secret Service agents. The agents directed the server to Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, who on Wednesday claimed at his Washington, DC, firm, Williams & Connolly, that he was unable to accept service on Clinton’s behalf, said Dunne.”

Last week, Gabbard sued Clinton for $50 million after Clinton had referred to Gabbard as a “Russian asset” on President Barack Obama’s former campaign manager David Plouffe’s podcast “Campaign HQ” last fall.

As The Daily Wire reported, Clinton had stated:

I think they have got their eye on someone who is currently in the Democratic primary  and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She is the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.

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 — I mean, totally. They know they can’t win without a third-party candidate. So I don’t know who it’s going to be, but I will guarantee you they will have a vigorous third-party challenge in the key states that they most needed.

Although Clinton did not mention Gabbard’s name, when he was asked whether Clinton was indeed referring to Gabbard, Clinton’s spokesman Nick Merrill confirmed Clinton was referring to Gabbard,  huffing, “If the nesting doll fits …”

Gabbard fired back, calling Clinton “the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long.”

Gabbard’s legal counsel blasted Clinton, writing that Clinton knew she was telling an untruth:

In making the statement, you knew it was false. Congresswoman Gabbard is not a Russian asset and is not being groomed by Russia. Besides your statement, no law enforcement or intelligence agencies have claimed, much less presented any evidence, that Congresswoman Gabbard is a Russian asset. This fabricated story is so facially improbable that it is actionable as defamation.
