Former President Donald Trump is suing Hillary Clinton and a myriad of other Democrat operatives for peddling false information that he was colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election.
In a 108-page complaint, Trump details the depth of the plot to take down his presidential campaign, and he uses special counsel findings to identify the masterminds behind the lies that he was somehow working with the Kremlin.
Among the top Russia hoaxers named on the complaint are Christopher Steele, author of the debunked Steele dossier; some of his bogus sources including Igor Danchencko; the Democratic National Committee; Clinton’s former campaign attorney Michael Sussmann, who was indicted for lying to the FBI; Sussmann’s former law partner and Democrat operative Marc Elias; Fusion GPS, which was hired by Clinton’s campaign to collect information about Trump; former FBI Director James Comey; President Joe Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan; Kevin Clinesmith, who pleaded guilty to falsifying the FISA warrant used to spy on Carter Page; and more.
As Special Counsel John Durham has revealed in his investigation of the conspiracy, Clinton’s campaign orchestrated the Spygate hoax to undermine Trump’s campaign for the presidency. Using a patently false narrative that was quickly picked up and is still being spread by the propaganda press, people hired by Clinton used secretly obtained information to convince the Obama administration to spy on Trump and his aides with the hopes of peddling their collusion scandal.
“They worked together with a single, self-serving purpose: to vilify Donald J. Trump. Indeed, their far-reaching conspiracy was designed to cripple Trump’s bid for presidency by fabricating a scandal that would be used to trigger an unfounded federal investigation and ignite a media frenzy,” the complaint declares.
These actions, Trump’s complaint details, were not only incredibly illicit at times but downright scandalous.
“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 actions taken in furtherance of their scheme — falsifying evidence, deceiving law enforcement, and exploiting access to highly-sensitive data sources — are so outrageous, subversive and incendiary that even the events of Watergate pale in comparison,” the complaint states.
Trump’s complaint also notes that “the fallout from the Defendants’ actions was not limited to the public denigration” and lawyer fees but also included the government wasting “precious time, resources and taxpayer dollars.” As a result, the Republican is demanding more than $72 million in damages.
