When former President Donald Trump summoned up years of bubbling resentment and sued Hillary Clinton and everyone else involved in Russiagate earlier this year, he naturally filed his lawsuit in South Florida—home to his oceanside estate.

And yet, when his attorneys formally filed the paperwork, they selected a tiny courthouse in the sprawling federal court district's furthest northeast corner—a satellite location that's 70 miles from Mar-a-Lago. They ignored the West Palm Beach federal courthouse that's a 12-minute drive away.

Trump's legal team, it seemed, was specifically seeking out a particular federal judge: one he appointed as president.
