Background: Former President Donald Trump is suing Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, and others involved in pushing the Russiagate conspiracy theory. He alleges that they conspired to create a false narrative tying his campaign to Russia.
"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," the complaint reads.
Some of the 28 others named include
- Jake Sullivan, Biden's national security adviser
- Former FBI Director James Comey
- Former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz
After Durham findings: Trump's lawsuit comes after newly released findings by Special Counsel John Durham show Clinton allies built a collusion narrative with illegal information. You can read more about it here.
