Trump suing Hillary Clinton, DNC over Russia collusion narrative

Donald Trump on Thursday sued Hillary Clinton and several other Democrats on the grounds that they attempted to rig the 2016 presidential election by creating a false narrative that tied his campaign to Russia.

In a lawsuit filed in federal court in Florida, attorneys for the former president wrote, "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."

Trump, who defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, is alleging "racketeering" and a "conspiracy to commit injurious falsehood," among other claims. The link between the Trump campaign and Russia that was, in Trump's estimation, fabricated by the DNC and Clinton campaign, triggered an "unfounded federal investigation" and a "media frenzy."

"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," it reads.
