‘King of the Frivolous Lawsuits’: Legal Experts Mock Trump’s ‘Lolsuit’ Against Hillary Clinton

Legal experts are treating a new lawsuit brought by Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton in relation to the 2016 Presidential election as an “unbelievable waste of time.”

Despite being the winner of that election, Trump filed a sprawling federal lawsuit on Thursday against Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, and 26 other people and entities that he claims “conspired to undermine his 2016 campaign” by falsely tying him to Russia. The lawsuit names a wide cast of characters that Trump has accused over the years of orchestrating a “deep state” conspiracy against him, including former FBI Director James Comey and other FBI officials, the retired British spy Christopher Steele and his associates, and a handful of Clinton campaign advisers.

The lawsuit, which runs just over 108 pages and is riddled with typographical errors, rails against many of Trump’s political opponents and highlights the perceived grievances that he has complained about for years.

It claims Democrats and government officials “perpetrated a multitude of offenses”, from a racketeering conspiracy to malicious prosecution, computer fraud, and theft of secret internet data. If that sounds like a whole lot of projection language, it is. The suit also contains some factual inaccuracies and some of the same grandiose or exaggerated false claims that Trump has made dozens of times.

The civil suit alleges that Clinton and top Democrats hired lawyers and researchers to fabricate information tying Trump to Russia, and then peddled those lies to the media and to the US government, in hopes of hobbling his chances of winning in 2016. Trump claims they were assisted by “Clinton loyalists” at the FBI, who abused their powers to investigate him and ultimately kick him out of the race. If that sounds like what Trump actually did to Clinton, it is.

John Podesta, the chairman of Clinton’s 2016 campaign and one of the lawsuit’s defendants, tweeted that part of the suit might be a “hoot.”
“Do you think Trump filed this case with the hope of calling Vladimir Putin as a character witness? Trump deposition ought to be a hoot,” Podesta wrote.
