The report added, "Since Gabbard announced her intention to run on January 11, there have been at least 20 Gabbard stories on three major Moscow-based English-language websites affiliated with or supportive of the Russian government".

Gabbard has struggled to keep together her bid, marked already by the exit of her campaign manager and parting of ways with a consulting firm.

As a teenager, Gabbard co-founded an environmental non-profit called Healthy Hawai'i Coalition, focused on educating children about protecting Hawaii's environment. She left office in 2004 and volunteered to be deployed to Iraq.

While working for Akaka in 2007, Gabbard graduated from the Accelerated Officer Candidate School at the Alabama Military Academy, where she was the first woman to finish as the distinguished honor graduate in the Academy's 50-year history.

Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard on Sunday stood by her decision to meet with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in 2017, saying that American leaders must meet with foreign leaders "if we are serious about the pursuit of peace and securing our country".

In response, Gabbard accused NBC of using "journalistic fraud" in a smear campaign against her.

She said the obstacles are great but those can be overcome by facing them unitedly. She served on the Homeland security and foreign affair committees.

Gabbard has also expressed some anti-Muslim sentiment, breaking with her party with her embrace of the term "radical Islam" to describe some terrorists.
