Judge Dismisses Trump Russiagate Lawsuit Against Dems

Former President Trump’s Lawsuit against Hilary Clinton, the Democratic National Convention, and several other high-profile individuals involved in the Russia Collusion hoax that overshadowed Trump’s presidency was dismissed this week by a federal judge.

Donald Trump had filed the lawsuit in the Southern District of Florida, and it alleged that Hilary Clinton and her “cohorts” conspired to orchestrate a plot leading to the false narrative that Trump was colluding with Russia. United States District Judge Donald Middlebrooks dismissed the lawsuit because he believed most of Trump’s claims lacked the support of legal authority and the lawsuit lacked substance. In Middlebrooks’ dismissal of this case, he said  that Trump’s suit is “not attempting to seek redress for any legal harm,” but that Trump was “seeking to flaunt a two-hundred-page political manifesto outlining his grievances against those that have opposed him, and this Court is not the appropriate forum.”

Alina Habba, Donald Trump’s attorney, said they plan to appeal this decision. “We vehemently disagree with the opinion issued by the Court today,” Habba said. “Not only is it rife with erroneous applications of the law, but it also disregards the numerous independent governmental investigations which substantiate our claim that the defendants conspired to falsely implicate our client and undermine the 2016 presidential election.”

Trump’s lawsuit included Hilary Clinton and her 2016 presidential campaign, the DNC, the law firm Perkins Coie, former Clinton campaign lawyers Michael Sussmann and Marc Elias, former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Biden National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, former Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, opposition research firm Fusion GPS, former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, former deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, and several others.

Perkins Coie is the law firm through which the DNC and the Clinton campaign funded the infamous Trump dossier. The dossier had been created by the ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, which opposition research firm Fusion GPS commissioned and funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign through law firm Perkins Coie.

The dossier then served as the basis for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against Carter Page, Trump’s former campaign aide.

Marc Elias, a former attorney for Hilary Clinton and who was also a partner for Perkins Coie, and  Michael Sussmann, who was indicted as part of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe for making a false statement to the FBI, were also named in the lawsuit. Bill Barr hired John Durham in 2019 to lead the investigation into the origins of the original FBI Russia probe, which began in July 2016, then known as Crossfire Hurricane.

Not only did the allegations against Trump ignite federal law enforcement investigations, but the House and Senate also launched investigations of their own. the FBI, the House, and the Senate found absolutely no evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia after nearly four years of wasted time and taxpayer money.

It should also be noted that Judge Middlebrooks is a Bill Clinton Appointee and should have recused himself from this case.

“This is one of the greatest political scandals in history,” Trump said earlier this year in an interview with Fox News. “For three years, I had to fight her off, and those crooked people off, and you’ll never get your reputation fully back.”

The New york post editorial board said it best:

“Of course, most media have no interest in sharing the truth. They won Pulitzers and endless clicks from hyping Russiagate, using it to kneecap a president they despised.

At this point, it’s up to Durham to keep exposing this unprecedented abuse of power for nakedly personal partisan ends, though Congress may help out once Democrats no longer run it.

Until the plotters are held accountable, there actually is good reason to worry about the future of democracy in America.”
