Trump Sues Hillary Clinton
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1953: Dr. Jonas Salk announces that he has successfully tested a vaccine to prevent Polio, clinical trials began the next year.
Former President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit against 28 individuals and organizations, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan, and the Democratic National Committee (DNC), alleging a widespread conspiracy to damage his reputation ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
“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 complaint reads.
“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.”
According to the 108-page complaint, Trump suffered no less than $24 million in damages in addition to the loss of current and future business.
The suit alleges that Clinton and the 27 other defendants participated in a “far-reaching conspiracy,” amounting to a criminal enterprise under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.
