A South Florida federal judge has dismissed ex-FBI Director James Comey and other FBI figures from former President Donald Trump’s ongoing RICO lawsuit aiming to hold a list of political and federal defendants liable for allegedly causing damage to his 2016 election campaign. 

U.S. District Judge Donald Middlebrooks of the Southern District of Florida relied on Westfall Act claims made last week by Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, FBI agent Peter Strzok, and two FBI lawyers, Lisa Page and Kevin Clinesmith, when he granted the government’s motion to substitute Friday morning.
