Donald Trump states he was "Too Busy" while Serving as President to Proceed in Lawsuit against Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton says that Donald Trump missed out on the four-year statute of limitations because all of the alleged conduct was known to him no later than October 29th, 2017.
The legal defense team of Donald Trump has argued that the limitations of a lawsuit filed against Hillary Clinton shouldn’t apply due to “the immense and unrelenting demands of the job prevented him from doing so sooner.” Donald Trump stated he was just too busy during his one term serving as the President to look into the details of his lawsuit against Hillary Clinton.
He claims she was involved in an effort to falsely accuse him and his 2016 campaign of colluding with Russia and swamp him with costly investigations, according to the filings of the Donald Trump legal team. His lawyers say, “Trump was preoccupied with carrying out his eminently important presidential duties and was therefore impeded from effectively asserting his rights.”
Under the civil version of a racketeering law normally used against organized crime, the lawsuit was filed in March. Hillary Clinton says that Donald Trump missed out on the four-year statute of limitations because all of the alleged conduct was known to him no later than October 29th, 2017. This is the time in which Trump publicly accused Hillary and others of cooking up a “Russia with hunt.”
United States District Judge Donald Middlebrooks is weighing a joint motion to dismiss the case by Hillary Clinton and her team. The number one reason for the suit to be thrown out, according to Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is the fact that it missed the statute of limitations.
A case for the trial is set to take place in May 2023.
