Trump, lawyers fined for ‘political’ suit

Trump

A federal judge has ordered former US president Donald Trump and his lawyers to pay more than $US937,000 ($1.4 million) in sanctions for suing former secretary of state Hillary Clinton over claims the 2016 presidential election was rigged.

US District Judge John Middlebrooks, who threw out Mr Trump’s lawsuit in September, said the sanctions were warranted because the former president had exhibited a pattern of misusing the courts to further his political agenda.
