Virtually everyone now knows that the whole "Trump-Russia collusion" conspiracy theory was very much false and has been thoroughly debunked at this point.
(My condolences to the CNN viewers out there.)
Donald Trump definitely knows. And he's taking it to court:
Former President Donald Trump on Thursday sued Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee and others for allegedly conspiring to "weave a false narrative" during the 2016 election that Trump and his campaign were colluding with Russia.
Trump's RICO suit says that Clinton, who was his Democratic opponent in that election, other defendants as part of the purported scheme falsified evidence, deceived law-enforcement authorities and exploited access to "highly-sensitive data sources" in a way that "even the events of Watergate pale in comparison."
The Republican ex-president, who is highly litigious, filed the suit in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida more than five years after defeating Clinton the race that was the subject of the supposed plot to harm his chances in the election.
It is indeed true that Trump is "highly litigious," though you know what they say: Even a highly litigious clock is right twice a day. Or something like that anyway.
The lawsuit, meanwhile, is a who's-who of Democratic leadership, if you want to call it that:
In addition to Clinton and the DNC, the defendants include former DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Clinton campaign chief John Podesta, the law firm Perkins Coie, the research firm Fusion GPS, former FBI officials Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and Christopher Steele, the ex-British intelligence agent who authored the notorious "Trump-Russia dossier" opposition research report before the election.
Pop the popcorn, folks—if this makes it to court, it's going to be nuuuuts!
