Hillary Clinton Accuses Trump of 'Improbably' Linking Her to Russia Hoax
HRC's legal team pushes back against President Trump's Russiagate lawsuit
Twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has accused President Donald Trump of "improbably" linking her to the Russia Hoax that she orchestrated against the 45th POTUS.
In a motion to dismiss the case, Hillary's legal team is pushing back against a lawsuit filed against her and others by President Trump.
Trump is suing Clinton and her allies over the so-called Russiagate controversy.
She claims that the lawsuit filed by Trump's legal team is "swollen with eighty pages of irrelevant allegations," according to the filing.
Trump filed his lawsuit late last month, alleging a conspiracy to create a "false narrative" tying his 2016 campaign to Russia.
The new motion alleges that the ties between the people being sued are only that they are "enemies" of Trump.
"All that links these disparate people and events is Plantiff’s antipathy toward them," the filing says.
"This is a President who doesn't just list enemies: he sues them."
Clinton has been critical of Comey for his handling of an FBI investigation into her unauthorized email server during her time as secretary of state.
The investigation continued into the heat of the 2016 presidential election, during which she was a candidate.
She has even placed blame on Comey for her defeat to Trump.
Clinton is joined by several others as defendants in the lawsuit, including 2016 Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta, and former Democratic National Committee chairwomen Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
The suit also names Jake Sullivan, who is currently Joe Biden's national security adviser.
Sullivan was Clinton's foreign policy adviser during her failed 2016 presidential campaign.
The motion was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida in the case Trump brought against Clinton and her associates over false claims that the Trump campaign was connected to Russia.
U.S. District Judge Donald Middlebrooks, a Bill Clinton appointee, will decide the motion after rejecting Trump's demand that he recuse himself from the suit.
The Justice Department argued in another filing last week that Comey, along with other anti-Trump former top FBI officials, is protected by federal statute and must be dropped from the lawsuit, according to Bloomberg.
