In addition to suing his 2016 rival, the GOP president is also naming other Democrats as well for taking part in the conspiracy, reports noted this week.
"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," reads the lawsuit, filed in a federal court in Florida.
Regardless of how the lawsuit pans out, there is plenty of evidence that Clinton was in on the conspiracy, including this nugget:

According to Reuters, the suit also alleges “racketeering” and a “conspiracy to commit injurious falsehood,” among other claims:
The suit seeks compensatory and punitive damages. Trump said he was “forced to incur expenses in an amount to be determined at trial, but known to be in excess of twenty-four million dollars ($24,000,000) and continuing to accrue, in the form of defense costs, legal fees, and related expenses.”
The defendants in Trump’s lawsuit include Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer.
A dossier written by Steele, which was circulated to the FBI and media outlets before the November 2016 election, set out unproven assertions that Russia had embarrassing information about Trump and some of his Republican campaign’s advisers and that Moscow was working behind the scenes to defeat Clinton.
Paul Sperry of RealClearInvestigations also noted in an October 2021 report that the "Hillary Clinton campaign operation to plant a false rumor about Donald Trump setting up a 'secret hotline' to Moscow through a Russian bank was much broader than known and involved multiple U.S. agencies, according to declassified documents and sources briefed on an ongoing criminal investigation of the scheme."
Besides the FBI, the Clinton campaign also attempted to convince then-President Obama's State Department, Justice Dept., and Central Intelligence Agency to sign on to the hoax, while also pressing the false narrative months and years after Trump won the election and was inaugurated in January 2017. The specific objective was to trigger a federal investigation against Trump and then ensure the leak of false, but damaging, information to the press, which dutifully reported without checking other sources because they, too, hated Trump.
“The Clinton machine flooded the FBI with pressure from a number of angles until investigations of Trump were opened and reopened,” one of the briefed sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive law enforcement matter told Sperry. "The deception was wide-ranging."
The lawsuit filed by Trump comes on the heels of more potential trouble for Clinton.
The Department of Justice is set to produce a “large volume” of classified materials and documents this week pertaining to the ‘Russiagate’ case involving the main source for Steele’s dossier that attempted to sabotage then-GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s candidacy and subsequent presidency, Conservative Brief reported.
“That’s according to special counsel John Durham, who made the revelation in a Tuesday filing in which he also asked a federal judge to extend a deadline for the production of classified discovery, in compliance with the Classified Information Procedures Act, a statute outlining the manner in which classified documents must be protected in criminal cases,” the outlet’s report continued.
“To date, the government has produced over 60,000 documents in unclassified discovery. A portion of these documents were originally marked ‘classified’ and the government has worked with the appropriate declassification authorities to produce the documents in an unclassified format,” Durham said in the filing submitted to the federal court in the Eastern District of Virginia.
“However, recent world events in Ukraine have contributed to delays in the production of classified discovery. The officials preparing and reviewing the documents at the FBI and intelligence agencies are heavily engaged in matters related to Ukraine,” Durham added.
“Nevertheless, the government will produce a large volume of classified discovery this week and will continue its efforts to produce documents in classified discovery on a rolling basis, and no later than the proposed deadlines set forth below,” Durham wrote.
Clinton should have been jailed years ago for serial violations of mishandling top-secret materials. If our phony government refuses to hold one of their own deep state types accountable, here's hoping Trump can at least strip her of millions of dollars.
