(PresidentialHill.com)- Last week, former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard revealed that her attorney has sent a cease and desist letter to Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney over Romney accusing Gabbard of treason.
Gabbard shared the link to the letter from her attorney, conservative lawyer Harmeet K. Dhillon, on Twitter and also appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to discuss the letter.
In the letter to Romney, Dhillon accused the Utah Senator of making “false and defamatory statements” and urged Romney to enter into a settlement with Gabbard to avoid going to court.
The cease and desist letter was prompted by a March 13 tweet in which Romney accused Gabbard of “parroting false Russian propaganda,” in a video where Gabbard called for a ceasefire around the bioresearch labs located in Ukraine so that any deadly pathogens could be secured and destroyed.
Romney further claimed that Gabbard’s “treasonous lies may well cost lives.”
In her letter to Romney, Dhillon defended Tulsi’s remarks and carefully outlined why Romney’s tweeted comments meet the standard for defamation. Dhillon stressed in her letter that Gabbard’s loyalty is “beyond reproach” and Romney knew that his claim of treason was false or “at a minimum” a “reckless disregard for the truth.”
Dhillon demands in her letter that Romney retract or take down all statements he made about Gabbard “and destroy all copies of those statements.” She demanded Romney enter into a settlement with Gabbard if he wants to avoid going to court. Dhillon gave the Utah Senator until April 27 to respond.
A similar letter was also sent to former MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann who accused Tulsi Gabbard of being a Russian agent.
