Judge Orders Trump and Lawyers to Pay Nearly $1 Million in Sanctions for Frivolous Clinton Lawsuit

Donald Trump and his attorneys have been hit with nearly $1 million in sanctions for a “frivolous” and “political” lawsuit against Hillary Clinton.

A federal judge ruled that Trump and his attorneys had engaged in a “continuing pattern of misuse of the courts” in their lawsuit against Clinton. The judge said that the lawsuit was “frivolous” and “brought for political purposes,” and therefore ordered sanctions of nearly $1 million.

The lawsuit, which was filed in November 2019, accused Clinton of making false statements about Trump’s foreign policy. Trump and his attorneys had sought $2 billion in damages.

The sanctions come as Trump faces a growing number of legal battles. He has been sued by various individuals and entities, including the District of Columbia and Maryland, for alleged violations of the Constitution’s emoluments clause.

In a statement, Trump’s lawyers said they were “disappointed” with the judge’s ruling and would appeal the decision.
