Judge Rebukes Trump, Calls Clinton Collusion Suit Junk

Judge Dismisses Collusion Suit With Stinging Criticism

  • A federal judge in Florida has dismissed former President Donald Trump’s lawsuit alleging Hillary Clinton, the FBI and others colluded to contrive Russia allegations against him during the 2016 campaign, offering a stinging rebuke to the lawsuit’s length and legal reasoning.
  • “Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint is neither short nor plain, and it certainly does not establish that Plaintiff is entitled to any relief,” wrote U.S. District Judge Donald Middlebrooks, appointed to the court by former President Bill Clinton.
  • Middlebrooks also indicated he might consider a request for sanctions against Trump’s lawyers for filing a suit.
