Trump Lies About “Winning” Court Case Against ‘Democrat Crazies’

Donald Trump lied on Twitter again saying he "won" a lawsuit proving his campaign didn't collude with Russians on the 2016 presidential campaign. In reality, the case was dismissed for being in the wrong jurisdiction.

Donald Trump took to Twitter today to, yet again, lie and contort facts.

In his post, the Trumpster seems to be gloating that he “Just won lawsuit filed by the DNC and a bunch of Democrat crazies trying to claim the Trump Campaign (and others), colluded with Russia.”

“They haven’t figured out that this was an excuse for them losing the election,” he added.

Now, there was a court case filed against Trump, but that’s about the only nugget of truth in his tweet.

The case was not brought by the Democratic National Committee but by two DNC donors and a former staffer.

The trio allege that Trump’s 2016 campaign conspired with Russian agents and WikiLeaks to publish emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee.

Trump didn’t ‘win’ the case, it was dismissed by federal Judge Ellen Huvelle on the grounds that, in her opinion, the case belonged not in federal court but in New York state courts where alleged meetings between campaign staffers and Russian agents are said to have taken place.

The judge pointedly wrote that her ruling was “not based on a finding that there was no collusion between defendants and Russia during the 2016 presidential election.”
