(PatrioticPost.com)- Attorneys representing former President Donald Trump in his racketeering lawsuit against the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign want the judge assigned to the case to recuse himself because he was appointed by Hillary’s husband, former President Bill Clinton.
In late March, Trump filed a lawsuit against Hillary, the DNC, and other high-profile figures involved in the Russiagate hoax. In the 108-page lawsuit filed in the Southern District of Florida, Trump accuses the defendants of orchestrating “an unthinkable plot” to create the false narrative that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.
On the day Trump’s lawsuit was filed, US District Judge Donald Middlebrooks, a Bill Clinton appointee, was assigned to the case.
And in a motion filed on Monday, Trump’s attorneys argued that since Hillary’s husband appointed Judge Donald to the bench and the extent of his relationship with the Clintons is unknown, he may be biased toward Hillary Clinton.
The lawsuit accuses Hillary Clinton and her cohorts of actions that constitute criminal enterprise under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). The suit alleges that the defendants “maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative” that Donald Trump colluded “with a hostile foreign sovereignty.”
The suit is also claiming that their actions caused Trump to suffer at least $24 million in damages as well as present and future business losses.
It was reported last Wednesday that the Federal Election Commission fined both the Hillary campaign and the Democratic National Committee for mislabeling payments that ultimately went to opposition research firm Fusion GPS who then hired former British spy, Christopher Steele.
The DNC and the Clinton campaign paid over a million dollars to Democrat law firm Perkins Coie which then hired Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on Clinton’s challenger, Donald Trump. Fusion GPS then hired Steele who concocted his now-debunked “dossier” on Trump.
According to the FEC, both the DNC and the Clinton campaign’s disclosure forms described the payments to Perkins Coie as “legal advice and services” rather than opposition research.
The FEC fined the Clinton campaign $8,000 while the DNC was fined $105,000.
