Donald Trump and one of his lawyers have been fined nearly $1 million in what a Florida judge has called a bogus lawsuit against Hillary Clinton and her top advisers.

The judgment ordered the former american president and his lawyer Alina Habba to pay nearly $938,000 (£758,626) to the defendants in the case, after claiming they conspired to influence the outcome of his winning presidential campaign by working with Russia.

Following the sanction, Mr. Trump withdrew his lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia Jameswhich was first filed in 2021.

US District Judge Donald M Middlebrooks, who first dismissed the case in September, called the lawsuit against Mr Trump’s 2016 rival, Ms Clinton, former top FBI and Democratic Party officials , of “completely frivolous, both factually and legally” and which “amounts to obstruction of justice”.

Citing other legal actions in which Mr Trump is involved, Mr Middlebrooks described the former president as a “prolific and sophisticated litigator” who uses the courts “to exact revenge on political adversaries”.

“He is the mastermind behind the strategic abuse of the judicial process,” Mr Middlebrooks added.

A spokesperson for Mr. Trump and Ms. Habba did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

After being first sued by Ms James, Mr Trump claimed the attorney general violated the Trump Organization’s constitutional right, by pursuing a politically motivated investigation, calling it a “witch hunt”.

Irritated, Mr Middlebrooks wrote of the lawsuit: ‘This litigation has all the telltale signs of being both vexatious and frivolous.’

Trump versus CNN

In another court case, Mr. Trump sued CNN media conglomerate for defamation in October last year.

He is seeking $475m (£420m) in punitive damages, claiming the network waged a “campaign of libel and slander” against him.

In the 29-page lawsuit, Mr Trump claimed CNN had long criticized him but had stepped up its attacks in recent months because the network feared he might run for president again in 2024.
