  • Hillary Clinton and 20 other Democrats were sued by Donald Trump.

  • The defendants Peter Strzok and Lisa Page have not been served.

  • According to the lawsuit, there was a plot to tie Trump to Russia.

According to new court papers, former President Donald Trump has been trying to serve former FBI officials Lisa Page and Peter Strzok with a lawsuit, but hasn't been able to do so.

Lawyers for Trump told a federal judge in Florida that he had tried six times to serve Page and Strzok.

The holdup in serving Strzok and Page was revealed in a brief status report on the massive lawsuit, in which Trump accuses lead defendants Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, former British inteligence officer Christopher Steele and some 20 Democrats with a sweeping conspiracy to tie him to Russia during

It's not clear how, or where, Trump's lawyers have looked for the two, who have maintained a separate, but public, profile since their brief extra-marital affair became front page news in 2017:

Two people who worked with Robert Muller on the Russian investigation have sued their former employers.

NBC News has hired Page as a national security and legal analyst. Strzok wrote a book about the threat of Donald J. Trump.

The Department of Justice declined to accept service on behalf of the two former employees, according to Trump's filing.

Filings from April show that Trump's lawyers have home addresses for the two.

On three occasions, Trump's lawyers published subpoenas into the public docket that included the home addresses of Strzok, Page, and co-conspirators and fellow FBI alums.

Page and Strzok are the only defendants who have not yet been served with the papers.

In that time, Clinton alone has submitted at least six filings, including a still pending motion to dismiss the case.

The lawyers for Trump, Strzock and Page didn't reply to requests for comment.
