Judge Ellen Huvelle dismissed a case brought by two DNC donors writing, “It bears emphasizing that this Court’s ruling is not based on a finding that there was no collusion between defendants and Russia during the 2016 presidential election. This is the wrong forum for plaintiffs’ lawsuit. The Court takes no position on the merits of plaintiffs’ claims.” Despite the judge’s actual words, Trump decided to lie at his rally in Montana last night and on Twitter stating, “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!”
The judge did not rule on the merits of the case and it was not brought by the DNC, as Trump claimed.
