Donald Trump sues Hillary Clinton over Russia ‘hoax’ in their battle for the 2016 presidency

“Hillary Clinton and her cohorts orchestrated an unthinkable plot — one that shocks the conscience and is an affront to this nation’s democracy,” attorneys for the former president wrote. “The defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent … 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.”
