Trump’s statement today: Judge fines Trump $1 million for ‘frivolous’ lawsuit against Hillary Clinton


Meet the Press host reveals ‘most influential person’ shaping 2024 election

Federal judge in Florida has sanctioned Donald Trump and his attorney nearly $1 million for suing the former secretary of state Hillary Clinton because of allegations that she and others rigged the 2016 presidential election.

“This case should never have been brought,” Judge Donald M. Middlebrooks of the Southern District of Florida wrote in his order. “Its inadequacy as a legal claim was apparent from the outset.”

Judge Middlebrooks said the sanctions were justified because the former president had demonstrated a “pattern” of abusing the courts for his political agenda. “Intended for political gain, none of the allegations in the amended complaint state a cognizable legal claim,” he wrote.

The judge ruled that Mr. Trump and his lawyer, Alina Haba, would be jointly and severally liable for $937,989 in punitive damages.

Meanwhile, the former president reacted angrily to the failure of Supreme Court to identify the source of Roe v. Wade leaking a decision that sparked outrage last year.

He shockingly called for the Politico reporter, publisher and editor who broke the story to be jailed in an attempt to force them to identify the source of the leak.
