(The Post Millennial) – On Thursday, Donald Trump launched a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton and many of her Democratic colleagues, for their role in trying to paint him as a Russian collaborator, starting in 2016 through to the present day.
The lawsuit alleges that the group was engaged in a “conspiracy to commit injurious falsehood.” It also alleges racketeering and a host of other legal wrongs.
According to Reuters, the Trump legal team is “seeking compensatory and punitive damages” in the lawsuit.
The legal complaint goes on to state that Trump 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.”
At the time, Robert Mueller, who was then the head of the FBI, launched a two-year-long investigation into Trump and his alleged links to the Russian government. The investigation, dubbed “Crossfire Hurricane,” however, ultimately proved to be fruitless.
Due to suspicion over the possible nature of this operation, special counsel John Durham was appointed at the end of 2020 to launch a special counter-investigation against the FBI itself, as well as various other actors in “Crossfire Hurricane.”
Current US Attorney General Merrick Garland has, however, refused to completely comply with authorities, and has stated that he can’t commit to releasing the report on how the investigation got started in the first place.
