Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined a number of other top Democrats in a court motion seeking to sanction former President Donald Trump for filing a debunked racketeering lawsuit against them, USA Today reported Wednesday.

In the motion, which was filed in the U.S. District Court in West Palm Beach, Florida, attorneys for Clinton argued that Trump should be sanctioned for more than $1 million in legal expenses that the former secretary of state incurred while fighting Trump's lawsuit. Beyond Clinton, the motion also requested that Trump be forced to pay the legal bills of others associated with Clinton, including her 2016 presidential campaign manager, John Podesta, USA Today reported.
