Donald Trump, lawyer authorized to pay nearly $1M to sue Hillary Clinton

A federal judge has imposed nearly $1 million in sanctions against former President Donald Trump and his lawyer in a lawsuit against two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and others. Clinton claims the case was pushed back to September when others tried to sway the 2016 presidential election in her favor by defaming Trump.

Meanwhile, U.S. District Court Judge John Middlebrooks wrote in his order banning Trump that, “We are faced with a lawsuit that should never have been filed, that was completely frivolous, factually and legally, and that was brought for an improper purpose.”

Also, John Middlebrooks added to his order, “Mr. Trump is a prolific and sophisticated litigator who has repeatedly used the courts to retaliate against political opponents. He is the mastermind of strategic abuse of the judicial process and is not seen as a litigant blindly following a lawyer’s advice. He was well aware of the ramifications of his actions … As such, I find that sanctions should be imposed on Mr. Trump and his chief adviser, Ms. Hubbard.”

A news outlet reported that “Under the order, Trump and Hubba, Republicans, are jointly and severally liable for the total amount of sanctions the judge imposed to cover the defendants’ legal fees and costs: $937,989.39. That’s about $120,000 more than what the defendants jointly requested for sanctions.” Comm. Clinton was paid $171,631 for the sanctions imposed by Trump and Hubbard, most of which was earmarked for Clinton’s attorneys’ fees.”

“It was the second-largest sum ordered by Middlebrooks, which gave $179,685 to the Democratic National Committee, former Florida chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and an associated corporation,” the outlet noted in a statement.

Clinton filed a motion asking the court to compel Trump and his attorney to pay nearly $1 million in legal fees after Clinton unsuccessfully sued him and others.

“The surprising request came Monday as lawyers for the former first lady-turned-2016 presidential candidate filed a motion in federal court seeking sanctions against former President Trump,” the report said.

“A reasonable attorney would never have filed this case, let alone prosecuted it after highlighting its fundamental and incurable flaws to dismiss multiple defendants,” a New Yorker report said, Clinton’s lawyers wrote.

Trump claimed that he lost more than $24 million as a result of rumors of collusion between his presidential campaign and Russia.

“This proposal, conveniently filed a week before Election Day, is nothing more than a thinly-veiled attempt to score political points,” Hubba told The Hill. He added, “This motion is particularly inappropriate, given that our client’s case will soon be reviewed by the Eleventh Circuit. We will oppose this motion and trust that the court will see through these rumors.”

The FEC fined Clinton’s treasurer $8,000 and the DNC’s treasurer $105,000. A report says the unverified and salacious anti-Trump dossier was used in a smear campaign against Donald Trump ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
