other key players in the so-called Russiagate controversy alleging they conspired to create a "false narrative" trying his 2016 campaign to Russia.

The former president seeks $72 million in damages in alleging that Clinton, his 2016 election rival, and others "orchestrated" a false plot to make it seem as though he was colluding with "a hostile foreign sovereignty" in an attempt to "vilify him," according to a court filing on Thursday with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

"They worked together with a single, self-serving purpose: to vilify Donald J. Trump. Indeed, their far-reaching conspiracy was designed to cripple Trump’s bid for presidency by fabricating a scandal that would be used to trigger an unfounded federal investigation and ignite a media frenzy," the complaint says.

Jake Sullivan, a Clinton campaign adviser who is now President Joe Biden's national security adviser; former FBI Director James Comey; and former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz are among the 28 individuals and corporations named as defendants in the lawsuit.

The 108-page complaint has a sweeping list of grievances, including the Russia investigation completed by special counsel Robert Mueller, and alleges racketeering, conspiracy to commit "injurious falsehood," obstruction of justice, among other alleged crimes.

Trump argues that opposition research against him, data analytics, among other political tactics were used to turn the public against him.

"The actions taken in furtherance of their scheme — falsifying evidence, deceiving law enforcement and exploiting access to highly-sensitive data sources—are so outrageous, subversive and incendiary that even the events of Watergate pale in comparison," the complaint reads.

The complaint rehashed many of the complaints that Trump echoed throughout his presidency and comes as special counsel John Durham continues his criminal inquiry into the origins and conduct of the Russia investigation.

Trump claims that he has lost no less than $24 million dollars in damages in past and present business due to the actions of the Clinton and others.
