Cliven Bundy — the father of Ammon Bundy, who led a militia that took over an Oregon federal building — was named in a 2014 lawsuit apparently filed by another man alleging President Obama threatened Donald Trump.
The motion for preliminary injunction, filed in federal court in Nevada, claimed Obama threatened Trump's business interests to get him to stop questioning whether Obama was born in the U.S.
The lawsuit, filed by David Rothrock, lists a Pennsylvania prison as a return address. It was apparently sent by Rothrock in his and Bundy's name. Cliven's wife, Carol, told the Independent Journal that the family didn't file the suit.
It reads: "Barack Obama was not a natural born citizen therefore he has no authority to take over peoples land under imminent domain. Mr. Obama blackmailed and covertly threatened Donald Trump with building code regulation violations, property tax fraud, illegally operating offshore tax havens for betting with Federal indictments unless he shuts up and stops the Birther movement because Mr. Obama fears he will be exposed for his covert and sinister ties to Iran's Hezbollah network."
The suit also says that "all Americans are in danger."
The lawsuit — which was dismissed because the $350 filing fee was never paid — claims the plaintiffs saw Bill Clinton cross-dress in a burqa and claims the plaintiffs saw Obama sell “Muslim oils at a street vendor stand with a wig and mustache.”
The lawsuit demands an investigation into the "atrocities" committed by "these orgie, sex deviants."
The lawsuit also claims the Benghazi attack was "implemented so George Bush could somehow feel vindicated for 9/11."
The sexually explicit letter makes several nonsensical claims — including that Obama had the plaintiffs oral sex on the president's dogs, Sunny and Bo, in the Oval Office.
The lawsuit states that if the "whistleblowing" claims are not brought to light, America will "be the new Africa and are [sic] citizens will be sleeping in tents and washing clothes in puddles by 2022."

Correction: This post has been updated to include that the lawsuit was apparently sent by Rothrock with Bundy listed as a plaintiff and has been updated throughout to reflect that.
