Trump Sues Hillary Clinton as Russiagate Prepares to Explode
'The defendants nefariously sought to sway the public’s trust'
President Donald Trump is suing former Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton along with the creator of the infamous Steele dossier, Christopher Steel.
The lawsuit says Clinton and ex-British spy Christopher Steele, and 30 others, carried out a plot to “weave a false narrative” that Trump was colluding with Russian actors.
The 108-page suit states:
“The actions taken in furtherance of their scheme—falsifying evidence, deceiving law enforcement, and exploiting access to highly-sensitive data sources—are so outrageous, subversive, and incendiary that even the events of Watergate pale in comparison."
“Under the guise of ‘opposition research,’ ‘data analytics,’ and other political stratagems, the defendants nefariously sought to sway the public’s trust,” it added.
“They worked together with a single, self-serving purpose: to vilify Donald J. Trump. Indeed, their far-reaching conspiracy was designed to cripple Trump’s bid for presidency by fabricating a scandal that would be used to trigger an unfounded federal investigation and ignite a media frenzy.”
Steele compiled a dossier on the basis of what he claimed were sources inside Russia.
His primary source was revealed to be Igor Danchenko, who has been investigated by federal agents for possibly being a Russian spy.
Steele was paid by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Clinton’s campaign, which was released to select reporters ahead of the 2016 election.
Despite Trump winning the 2016 election, he was dogged by the collusion allegations for years after becoming president.
Special counsel Robert Mueller ultimately found no evidence of conspiracy or coordination between Trump or his campaign and Russians.
Many claims in the dossier were later confirmed as false while others have never been proven.
As The Epoch Times reported:
Others include Fusion GPS and its operatives, who helped produce and distribute the dossier; Danchenko and Clinton lawyer Michael Sussman, both charged with lying to the FBI as part of special counsel John Durham’s investigation; former FBI officials James Comey and Andrew McCabe; and former FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok.
Kevin Clinesmith, the former FBI lawyer who doctored an email to say a former Trump campaign associate was not a CIA asset when the original missive said he was, is also a defendant.
As Neon Nettle reported earlier this week:
The Justice Department is set to produce a “large volume” of classified materials in the Russiagate case against British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s anti-Trump dossier.
Durham made the assertion in a filing asking a judge for a deadline extension for the production of classified discovery in accordance with the Classified Information Procedures Act.
Durham also urged the need for a delay on agency personnel being involved in matters related to Russia’s war in Ukraine.
Durham said in the filing submitted to federal court in the Eastern District of Virginia:
“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.”
