Posted: Updated:

A Dutch national and President Trump supporter is suing Rob Hyde for defamation.

Hyde is running as a Republican for the congressional seat held by Rep. Jahana Hayes.

Anthony de Caluwe claims Hyde made defamatory statements about him in a recent interview for NBC Connecticut.

It stems from the impeachment scandal and texts Hyde sent to a Rudy Giuliani associate suggesting the Ukrainian ambassador was under surveillance.
