Former President Donald Trump’s $72 million lawsuit against Hillary Clinton revealed that Clinton herself approved the distribution of the false Trump Russia collusion story that was peddled through the media during the 2016 Presidential campaign.
The former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook testified under oath that Clinton was consulted about materials alleging a connection between Russia’s Alfa Bank and the Trump Organization. Mook admitted that the campaign team was not sure the materials were accurate but nonetheless Clinton approved the dissemination of the story.
When Mook was asked about the release of the Trump Russia story he said, “I discussed it with Hillary as well,” he continued saying “I don’t remember the substance of the conversation, but notionally, the discussion was, hey, we have this and we want to share it with a reporter.” When asked how Clinton responded to the information, Mook said that “She agreed to that.”
In the initial filing Trump made against Hilary it stated, “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.”
Although this recent revelation of Clinton’s personal influence on the distribution of the false Trump Russia story, Trump’s $72 million lawsuit targets over 20 people and organizations that played a role in attempts to connect him to the Russia Alfa Bank.
The lawsuit filing states, “In the run-up to the 2016 Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton and her cohorts orchestrated an unthinkable plot – one that shocks the conscience and is an affront to this nation’s democracy. 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 actions taken in furtherance of their scheme—falsifying evidence, deceiving law enforcement, and exploiting access to highly-sensitive data sources – are so outrageous, subversive and incendiary that even the events of Watergate pale in comparison.”
The Trump Russia story has been proven false time and time again but as the lawsuit continues we will see how far the Clinton campaign went to try and vilify former President Donald Trump.
