It’s a significant loss but not the last we’ll hear of this. The judge in Donald Trump’s lawsuit against the Democrat National Committee and the Clintons over the Russia conspiracy theory hoax discarded the case. This was a chance to hold corrupt Democrats’ feet to the fire.
The judges on this case were rather suspicious to begin with. The first judge recused himself and Bruce Reinhardt replaced him. Reinhardt recused himself almost immediately before ordering the raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. Curious, isn’t it?
Regardless, the current judge, U.S. District Judge Donald Middlebrooks, discarded the lawsuit.
Fox News reports:
Trump filed the lawsuit in March in the Southern District of Florida, alleging that Clinton and her “cohorts orchestrated an unthinkable plot” and “maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative” that Trump was colluding with Russia.
This week, U.S. District Judge Donald Middlebrooks threw out the lawsuit, saying that “most of” Trump’s claims were “unsupported by any legal authority” and said the lawsuit lacks “substance.”
Middlebrooks said Trump’s suit is “not attempting to seek redress for any legal harm,” but instead is “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.”
Trump lawyer Alina Habba told Fox News Friday the former president’s attorneys plan to appeal the decision to dismiss the case.
Habba said, “We vehemently disagree with the opinion issued by the Court today,” adding, “Not only is it rife with erroneous applications of the law, it 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.”
