Former President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit against those responsible for the Steele Dossier and Russian collusion lie.
Trump’s suit accuses former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former FBI Director James Comey, the Democratic National Committee, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and dozens of others of engaging in an organized plot to spread malicious and false information about Trump in an attempt to discredit him ahead of the 2016 presidential election and beyond.
“In the run-up to the 2016 Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton and her cohorts orchestrated an unthinkable plot — one that shocks the conscience and is an affront to this nation’s democracy,” Trump’s suit begins.
“Acting in concert, the Defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty. 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. They worked together with a single, self-serving purpose: to vilify Donald J. Trump,” the suit continues.
“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.”
Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and his presidency were fraught with down-right lies spewed by Democrats who tried to claim that he worked with Russia to cheat in the 2016 presidential election.
That lie was generated by the infamous Steele Dossier, a report put together by former British spy Christopher Steele and funded by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign – which was eventually uncovered to be entirely fabricated in order to distract the American people from Clinton’s email scandal.
Trump’s lawsuit alleges that the defendants violated U.S. RICO laws, or laws used against organized crime groups such as gangs and mafias, among other violations.
“The members of the Enterprise are a group of persons associated together for the common purpose of carrying on an ongoing enterprise; specifically, the Enterprise had a common, unlawful goal of dismantling the Plaintiff’s political career and/or impeding his ability to effectively govern through fraudulent, deceptive, and criminal means, including, but not limited to, falsely implicating the Plaintiff, the Trump Campaign, and the Trump Administration as colluding with Russia,” the lawsuit states, explaining its RICO case.
The lawsuit adds that the Trump was forced to spend at least $24 million dollars to combat the vicious attacks directed towards him.
“Among other things, the Plaintiff 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 incurred in connection with his effort to defend against the Defendants’ actions and the various federal investigations and/or official proceedings which arose therefrom, in addition to the loss of existing and future business opportunities for himself, the Trump Campaign, and the Trump Organization LLC,” the lawsuit says.
