Hillary Clinton is reportedly dodging legal papers from being delivered to her related to Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s defamation lawsuit.
The woman who claimed “no one is above the law” is behaving exactly like someone who is as she has reportedly been hiding from being served in the Hawaii Democrat’s $50 million lawsuit against her.

According to an attorney for the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, a process server has twice been turned away after attempting to deliver the lawsuit over Clinton’s comments insinuating that Gabbard is a “Russian asset.”
“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 New York Post. “But I guess here we are.”
The Secret Service blocked the server on Tuesday when the attempt was made to deliver the lawsuit to Clinton’s home in Chappaqua, N.Y., according to Dunne. Instructions were given to deliver the papers to the Washington office of Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, instead.
But at the Washington, D.C.-based law firm, Williams & Connolly, the former first lady’s attorney said he could not accept the lawsuit on her behalf.
Gabbard accused Clinton of “seeking to smear my reputation” and filed the lawsuit last week against the failed Democratic presidential nominee for “deliberately and maliciously” making false statements about her to “derail” her 2020 campaign.

In an interview last year, Clinton had said that an unnamed Democratic 2020 contender was “the favorite of the Russians” and had suggested that Republicans were “grooming” a Democratic presidential candidate for a third-party bid, though she did not name Gabbard specifically.
“I think it was a very clear and intentional message that if you dare to cross Hillary Clinton or her powerful allies that you too will see your reputation smeared. You too will get the kind of false and baseless accusations that we’ve seen from Hillary towards me. It’s an attempt to silence anyone who dares to cross her,” Gabbard told Fox News.
In a video message released Thursday, Gabbard urges Clinton to “step down from your throne.”

While there has not yet been a public response from Gabbard personally regarding Clinton’s refusal to be served, the former secretary of state’s penchant for self-awareness failures was called out on social media.
Clinton’s hiding from being served reminded many of the sanctimonious tweet she shared after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the articles of impeachment against President Trump.

Clinton was roasted over the remark at the time, just as she had earlier last year when she reacted to the report from special counsel Robert Mueller by saying “…any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted.”

Clinton’s dodging Gabbard’s lawsuit this week in light of her past finger-pointing drew a fresh round of backlash online.

Can anyone else get away with refusing to be served?
