Trump sues Clinton over Russia issue

In the 2016 US election campaign, Democrats accused then-presidential candidate Trump of working with Russia to influence election results. This has still not been clearly proven. Now Trump is filing a lawsuit against his former rival Clinton.

Former US President Donald Trump has sued his former rival Hillary Clinton and other Democratic Party leaders for alleged defamation in the alleged Russia case. For the 2016 US presidential election, Clinton “and her followers conspired out of sheer malice to spread a false narrative” that Republican nominee Trump was working with Russia, according to the lawsuit filed in federal court in Florida.

The lawsuit states that to further his “scheming,” Clinton and her supporters “exploited false evidence, fraudulent law enforcement agencies” and “his access to highly sensitive databases”. It is “so outrageous, anti-state and incendiary” that even the Watergate case seems “pale” in comparison.

In addition to Clinton, who ran against Trump in the 2016 presidential election, the document included Clinton’s campaign manager at the time, John Podesta, and former FBI chief James Comey, as well as law firm Perkins Coe. in the Democratic campaign, and Fusion Company GPS.

Trump demands jury trial

It also names former British secret agent Christopher Steele, who prepared a dossier ahead of the 2016 presidential election that said there was compromising information about Trump. Trump has repeatedly called the steel dossier “fake.” The New York Times newspaper also concluded that there was no supporting evidence for many of Steele’s claims.

Trump is seeking a jury trial on his charges. He is also seeking damages of at least $72 million (€65.5 million). The so-called Russia case was the subject of an extensive investigation by then special counsel Robert Mueller. The question was whether Trump and his campaign team were working with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

The Mueller report cited several meetings between Trump aides and Russians, but the report failed to uncover evidence of Trump’s campaign team colluding with Russia. So Trump declared himself completely acquitted after the Mueller report was published.
