Former President Donald Trump is suing Hillary Clinton for trying to ‘plot’ to rig 2016 election against him.
Trump alleges that Clinton, the Democratic National Committee and 26 other people and entities tried to sabotage his campaign by falsely tying him to Russia.
The former president alleged in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Florida:
“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,”
Trump’s lawsuit also claims:
“Hillary Clinton and her cohorts orchestrated an unthinkable plot – one that shocks the conscience and is an affront to this nation’s democracy.”
“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.”
Trump is seeking compensatory and punitive damages.
“forced to incur expenses in an amount to be determined at trial, but known to be in excess of $24 million and continuing to accrue, in the form of defence costs, legal fees, and related expenses”.
Some legal experts have already dismissed the case as a meritless political stunt.
