On Sept. 8, 2022, U.S. District Judge Donald M. Middlebrooks dismissed a lawsuit brought by former President Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton, former FBI Director James Comey, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), and others that alleged that they executed a plan to spread disinformation about his campaign during the 2016 presidential election. Trump accused Clinton and others of working together to disseminate false information to the American public that his campaign colluded with Russia to help him win the election “all in the hopes of destroying his life, his political career[,] and rigging the 2016 [p]residential [e]lection in favor of Hillary Clinton.”

In the 65-page ruling, Middlebrooks found that Trump’s lawsuit lacked structure, substance, and legal support, and wrote that Trump “is seeking to flaunt a two-hundred-page political manifesto outlining his grievances against those that have opposed him, and this Court is not the appropriate forum.”
