Trump Sues Hillary---and About 30 Cohorts Involved in "Russian Hoax"

On March 24 in a federal court in Florida, President Trump, represented by the Ticktin Law Group of Florida and Habba Madaio & Associates LLP of New Jersey, sued former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the DNC and “dossier” author Christopher Steele along with approximately 30 others involved in the Russia Hoax, for carrying out a plot to “weave a false narrative” that Trump was colluding with Russian actors to win the 2016 election.

Why would he be doing this now? Does Trump really think he can overturn an election that occurred more than a year ago?

Be informed, not misled.

While President Biden has stumbled and struggled through this last year---his first as president, at least we haven't had to hear about how Russia colluded with Trump---the "Russian Hoax" as we came to know it, and how Trump needs to be eternally punished.

However, the investigation of the matter by Special Counsel John Durham has continued to grind away---day after day after day.

No wonder Hillary and her party were so focused on Russia--They were colluding with them.

The Russian Hoax is that Hillary and her cohorts were doing what they were accusing Trump of doing.

The New York Post writes:

Former President Donald Trump on Thursday filed a $24 million federal lawsuit alleging that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee launched a wide-ranging “unthinkable plot” in 2016 to smear him and his campaign as colluding with Russian officials.

In the suit, filed in the Southern District of Florida, Trump claims the goal was to fabricate a scandal in an effort to “cripple” his bid for the presidency.

“In the run-up to the 2016 Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton and her cohorts orchestrated an unthinkable plot — one that shocks the conscience and is an affront to this nation’s democracy,” he says in the 108-page complaint. 

“Acting in concert, the Defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty.”

The 45th president alleges that the scheme concocted by Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, and others falsified evidence, deceived law enforcement, and exploited “access to highly-sensitive data sources” — and was “so outrageous, subversive and incendiary that even the events of Watergate pale in comparison.”

The suit claims, "They worked together with a single, self-serving purpose: to vilify Donald J. Trump" 

When Trump was elected, their purpose shifted from defeating him in the presidential election to undermining him, his presidency, and finally to making sure he was so vilified he could never again run for public office, according to the suit.

To date, the government has produced over 60,000 documents in unclassified discoveries, but recent events in Ukraine have contributed to delays in the production of more classified discoveries.

Durham has asked for a short extension of time for this reason, but very soon an avalanche of information will flood the news.


I expect the mainstream media to attempt to treat this information as they treated Hunter Biden's laptop--ignore it until it becomes "old news" and ultimately goes away.

Personally, I don't think that will work this time---on this matter.

The lawsuit claims the scheme was "conceived, coordinated, and carried out by top-level officials at the Clinton Campaign and the DNC---including 'the candidate' herself ---who attempted to shield her involvement behind a wall of third parties."

What I've read indicates there is an abundance of evidence to support that statement.

Trump is asking for at least $24,000,000 for expenses, including an amount that continues to accrue for legal fees.

Along with Clinton and the DNC, the lawsuit names as defendants former DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Clinton campaign chief John Podesta, the law firm Perkins Coie, the research firm Fusion GPS, former FBI officials Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Christopher Steele, the ex-British intelligence agent who authored the dossier.

Why would Trump do this at this point?

So, one would ask how can a public figure who was running for president sue for damages because of what was said about him? The suit makes it clear that “Trump has sustained significant injuries and damages.” To date, he claims that monetary damages to him, his campaign, and his organization are in excess of $24 million, not counting “the loss of existing and future business opportunities.” That sounds like a conservative estimate.

Trump's lawyers have wisely worded the suit with that in mind.

“The Plaintiff,” the suit says, “does not claim nor seek any compensation for damage to his reputation, but rather, he seeks damages for the cost of dealing with the legal issues and political issues, which he was required to spend to redress the injurious falsities which were propounded by the Defendants and all other losses incurred due to the tortious conduct of the Defendants.”

It appears Trump is trying to clean up the mess created by his political opponents while deciding whether he will run for president again. Or not.
