We are almost to the midterms and we are still dealing with the 2016. I wonder what their desired relief is in the lawsuit. A do over?
Democratic Party files federal lawsuit alleging conspiracy by Trump Campaign, Russia, WikiLeaks to disrupt 2016 presidential election.
Calling it an “all-out assault on our democracy,” the Democratic National Committee on Friday filed a multimillion-dollar federal lawsuit against Trump campaign officials, the Russian government and WikiLeaks for allegedly meddling in the 2016 presidential race.
The suit, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges a widespread conspiracy. It claims that Trump campaign officials worked in tandem with the Russian government and its military spy agency to bring down Hillary Clinton by hacking into the computer networks of the DNC and spreading stolen material.
“During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found a willing and active partner in Donald Trump’s campaign,” said DNC Chairman Tom Perez in a statement, going so far as to call the alleged collusion “an act of unprecedented treachery.”
