Clinton requests that judge dismiss suit brought against her by Trump

Hillary Clinton is requesting that a judge dismiss the charges brought against her by former President Donald Trump on grounds that they allegedly have “no merit.” 

According to The Daily Mail representation for the former First Lady filed for dismissal on Wednesday calling Trump’s suit a “fundraising tool, a press release or a list of political grievances’ but said it has no place ‘as a lawsuit and should be dismissed with prejudice.”

Trump is suing Clinton and a number of others for what he called an “unthinkable plot” to “weave a false narrative” that he was colluding with a hostile foreign power during that election cycle to ‘cripple Trump’s bid for presidency.”

The Daily Mail reported that Clinton “vigorously denies” the claims that she was involved in the false narrative that was brought against Trump and argued that he “fails to plead any cognizable legal causes of action,” the filing obtained by Axios states.

“Her attorneys also claimed that some of the Republican’s accusations — including conspiring with the FBI and Christopher Steele on the British ex-spy’s infamous dossier — would run out of the statute of limitations even if Trump had a case,” the Daily Mail reported. 

Clinton’s legal representation claim that the allegations were made ‘no later than October 29, 2017, when [Trump] publicly asserted that Clinton was responsible for the Steele Dossier, ‘the Comey fix,’ and ‘phony’ stories on his collusion with Russia, and claimed the facts of the alleged conspiracy were ‘pouring out.'”

“But notwithstanding his rousing, all-caps call to action, Plaintiff waited four years, four months, and twenty-four days before filing suit. His delay renders each of his claims untimely,” the suit states.

“At most, [Trump] alleges that other entities sought to further Clinton’s candidacy and, after the election, politically opposed [Trump’s] administration. This is conduct plainly protected by the First Amendment, and there is nothing unlawful about engagement in political activity,” Clinton’s team said.

Included in the defendants from Trump’s suit are former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI agent Peter Strzok, ex-FBI lawyer, and Strzok’s former lover Lisa Page, the Democratic National Committee, and others.

“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,” the lawsuit states.
