Failed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her 20+ cohorts are seemingly desperately trying to get a judge to dismiss former President Donald Trump’s bombshell lawsuit against them.
As previously reported, back in the spring Trump filed a gigantic lawsuit against Clinton, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, disgraced former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and numerous other figures over their role in promoting the Russian collusion delusion hoax and conspiracy theory.
On Thursday, Clinton and her allies filed a motion asking U.S. District Judge Donald Middlebrooks, a Bill Clinton appointee, to dismiss the lawsuit on the basis that it’s nothing but bullschiff.
In the motion, Clinton and crew call the suit a “swollen” political manifesto that “alleges a series of disconnected political disputes” that Trump has “alchemized into a sweeping conspiracy” by his political enemies, as reported by Bloomberg.
They also accuse Trump of “improbably” tying everybody together in one grand conspiracy, particularly Clinton, Comey, and Rosenstein.
“Trump ‘improbably’ ties Clinton to former FBI director James Comey, a Republican who publicly announced the reopening of a probe into Clinton’s emails 11 days before the 2016 election, undermining her campaign; as well as former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, a Trump appointee,” according to Bloomberg.
“All that links these disparate people and events is plaintiff’s antipathy toward them. This is a president who doesn’t just list his enemies; he sues them,” Clinton’s attorney David E. Kendall reportedly wrote.
FYI, while it’s true Comey reopened the investigation into Clinton only days before the 2016 election, he immediately closed it afterward, just as he’d closed it the first time during that summer.
Moreover, the motion doesn’t mention the numerous complaints that have emerged from those who feel like the investigation wasn’t conducted properly.

Specifically, the allegation has been made that Comey gave Clinton lightweight treatment because of her status as a Democrat powerhouse.
Speaking on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” back in 2018, for instance, former FBI Assistant Director Chris Swecker complained about Comey having reached a conclusion on Clinton before even gathering all the available evidence.
“It doesn’t take a Congressional investigation [to show that] nothing about that investigation was right,” Swecker said.
“Those of us that have conducted federal criminal investigations know that you use the grand jury, you use search warrants, you don’t hand out immunities like candy. Everything investigation runs contrary to the way a real credible, thorough FBI investigation is conducted,” Swecker added.
But Comey didn’t even call a grand jury.
“[I]n any complicated federal investigation, the basic tool of the trade is a grand jury. Use of the grand jury to obtain records. You don’t go to witnesses and say ‘mother, may I have that computer hard drive? May I have those emails?’ You use subpoenas and process and grand jury and search warrants and that sort of process. That was the tip-off from the beginning,” Swecker said.
The suit also neglects to mention any of Comey and Rosenstein’s bad, clearly biased behavior after Trump took office in 2017.
Comey leaked memos that detailed his interactions with the then-president. He also seemingly conspired with then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to get the infamous Steele dossier published by the press.
As previously reported, Clapper leaked the dossier to the press. Comey then broached the dossier with Trump to give the media justification for publishing it.
Then there’s Rosenstein, who plotted to use the 25th Amendment against Trump.
Their combined behavior was so bad that even Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera later called it out.
“[Comey] and a small cabal of people at the FBI [including Rosenstein] attempted a coup. He attempted to cripple the president-elect and the president of the United States, and ultimately his goal was to replace the president via the 25th Amendment,” Rivera said in 2019, as reported at the time by Fox News.
“This is the biggest stuff — when you talk about history books that’s what this was really all about. This was the swamp responding to an elected official who is obviously untraditional — and going after him in a way that they wanted to… get him out of office and be replaced by Vice President Pence or whomsoever.”

Dovetailing back to Trump’s lawsuit, Clinton and crew have requested it be dismissed with prejudice, meaning he wouldn’t be able to sue again.
The motion says Trump’s allegations are “hopelessly stale” and that each one “fails on the merits in multiple independent respects,” as reported by The Independent.
“Whatever the utility of Plaintiff’s amended complaint as a fundraising tool, a press release, or a list of political grievances, it has no merit as a lawsuit,” the motion reads.
The motion also cites a five-year statute of limitations. It claims specifically that Trump’s allegations concern events that occurred in 2015, 2016, and 2017, meaning they’re “long past the five-year statute of limitations during which he could have filed suit.”
