Hillary demands more than $1 million in fees over Russiagate lawsuit

A judge’s decision to throw out a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton over her failed 2016 presidential campaign’s promotion of the now-debunked Russiagate conspiracy theory that she launched against President Trump has prompted her to demand $1 million in fees.

The Washington Examiner reports Mrs. Clinton is claiming the lawsuit by Trump over her campaign of lies, including the so-called “Steele dossier” and more, was a “political stunt” and she deserves reimbursement.

What is now known is that Clinton and her campaign worked hand-in-glove with the Department of Justice and the FBI to make up claims about Trump, “leak” them to the media, and then use them as evidence in court documents in which the FBI demanded authority to spy on the Trump campaign.

The lies were so egregious that when the deception was uncovered, the federal court that had granted that spy permission actually rescinded some of its authorizations.

Trump sued Clinton and other Democrats, former British spy Christopher Steele and more.

Trump explained he suffered losses of more than $24 million from the innuendo the conspiracy actors created.

But U.S. District Judge Donald Middlebrooks in Florida, who was appointed to his lifetime post by Hillary’s husband, Bill Clinton, dismissed the case, prompting Trump to appeal.

Clinton claimed that Trump’s lawsuit over her unsupported allegations against him was “particularly vexatious and frivolous.”

Middlebrooks turned political in his rejection of the case, claiming that Trump had submitted a “200-page political manifesto.”

The report explained Clinton’s costs were $176,412.

A lawyer for Trump’s team pointed out that the motion appeared in court “one week prior to election day,” making it “nothing more than a thinly-veiled attempt to score political points.”
