Politics is a tricky game. It takes far more than sheer legislative savvy to be successful in DC, with likability playing a major role in just how successful one can be.
In the case of Hillary Clinton, a massive deficit in the congeniality department has been made up for with ruthlessness and corruption, creating an aura of arrogance that has made her one of the most hated people in all of American politics.
The former Secretary of State has been simply untouchable, walking away from scandals such as Benghazi, her private email server, and the rigging of the 2016 Democratic primaries with impunity.
This week, Clinton again insinuated that she is above the law, refusing to be served a lawsuit against her.
Hillary Clinton has now twice snubbed a process server attempting to deliver the defamation lawsuit filed against her by Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, according to Gabbard’s attorney.
“I find it rather unbelievable that Hillary Clinton is so intimidated by Tulsi Gabbard that she won’t accept service of process,” the congresswoman’s attorney, Brian Dunne, told The Post. “But I guess here we are.”
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.
Gabbard is suing Clinton for defamation after the former First Lady proclaimed that the Hawaii Congresswoman and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate was being “groomed” to be a “Russia asset”.
