Former U.S. President Donald Trump sued Hillary Clinton and several other Democrats, claiming that they tried to rig the 2016 U.S. presidential election by tying his campaign to Russia.

The Republican former president repeatedly aired during his four years in the White House after beating Clinton, according to the lawsuit.

"Acting in concert, the Defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty," the former president alleged in a 108-page lawsuit filed in a federal court in Florida.

The suit alleges "racketeering" and a "conspiracy to commit injurious falsehood," among other claims.

However, the Clinton representative did not respond to a request for comment.

Trump said he was "forced to incur expenses in an amount to be determined at trial, but known to be in excess of twenty-four million dollars ($24,000,000) and continuing to accrue, in the form of defense costs, legal fees, and related expenses."
