During the 2016 presidential election, Trump and his campaign were accused of coordinating with Russia, which led to his resignation.
On Thursday, former President Donald Trump sued Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, and others for allegedly conspiring to “weave a false narrative.”
Clinton, who was Trump’s Democratic opponent in the election, and other defendants, according to the RICO suit, falsified evidence, deceived law enforcement authorities, and exploited access to “highly-sensitive data sources” in such a way that “even the events of Watergate pale in comparison,” according to the suit.
According to the lawsuit, Trump is owed more than $72 million in damages, which is more than quadruple the $24 million in legal fees and other damages that he is said to have incurred as a result of the defendants’ alleged actions.
The suit was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida more than five years after the Republican ex-president defeated Clinton in the race that was the subject of the alleged plot to harm his chances in the election. The suit was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
The president-elect said at a press conference during his presidential campaign in 2016: “Russia, if you’re listening — I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing.”
He was referring to electronic communications that had been deleted from a private email server Clinton used while she was secretary of state.
Furthermore, the lawsuit comes three years after then-special counsel Robert Mueller announced that his probe had discovered that the Trump campaign was “receptive” to Russian assistance during his 2016 presidential campaign.
Trump has claimed that Mueller’s investigation, which was the continuation of an FBI investigation into Trump campaign contacts with Russia during the 2016 election, was a witch hunt.
Mueller’s investigation was the continuation of an FBI investigation into Trump campaign contacts with Russia during the 2016 election.
However, in August 2020, the Senate Intelligence Committee, which at the time was led by Republicans, released a bipartisan report that found, among other things,
that Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort had met with a Russian intelligence officer on a regular basis and shared information with him, including internal campaign polling data.
“When their gambit failed, and Donald J. Trump was elected president, the Defendants’ efforts continued unabated, only shifting their focus to undermining his presidential administration,” according to Trump’s lawsuit, which claims the scheme was intended to “rig” the 2016 election.

It claims that the defendants engaged in a conspiracy, injurious lies, malicious prosecution, computer fraud, and misuse and theft of trade secrets, among other things.
Aside from Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, the defendants are former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Clinton campaign chief John Podesta,
law firm Perkins Coie, research firm Fusion GPS, former FBI officials Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and Lisa Page, and Christopher Steele, the ex-British intelligence agent who authored the infamous “Trump-Russia dossier” opposition research report prior to the election.
According to Trump’s lawyer, Alina Habba, the lawsuit filed today “describes the Defendants’ nefarious plot to defame Donald J. Trump by spreading lies in order to create a false narrative that he was colluding with Russian officials.”
Hillary Clinton and her supporters have attempted to shield themselves from responsibility for years by directing others to carry out their dirty work on their behalf.
” According to Habba, “the purpose of this lawsuit is to hold all parties accountable for their heinous acts while also upholding the principles of our sacred democracy.”
