Democrat Fundraiser: Sue Republicans, Russia, Wikileaks

The DNC is going to sue Republicans for conspiring with Russia and Wikileaks, which they call an “unimaginable treachery.”

Since Robert Mueller isn’t finding enough, apparently, the Democrat solution is to sue Republicans, Russians, and Wikileaks for an “assault on our democracy.”

This seems so desperate, I wonder if the reason for the lawsuit is that the DNC is so broke. As it stands this will allow a countersuit and discovery. What will the DNC do when GOP lawyers demand evidence that their servers were hacked (by anyone, including Russia) rather than the information leaked by a DNC defector (like perhaps Seth Rich)? I don’t see any upside to this for the Democrats.

Fox News reports, “Democratic Party files suit alleging conspiracy by Trump campaign, Russia, WikiLeaks to sway 2016 election.

The Democratic Party on Friday filed a multimillion-dollar federal lawsuit against Trump campaign officials, the Russian government and WikiLeaks alleging a widespread conspiracy to tilt the 2016 election in Donald Trump’s favor.

Calling it an “all-out assault on our democracy,” the Democratic National Committee filed the civil suit in federal district court in Manhattan. The suit amounts to another legal broadside related to the 2016 race, on top of the special counsel’s ongoing Russia probe and the FBI raid on Trump’s personal attorney last week.

“The conspiracy constituted an act of previously unimaginable treachery: the campaign of the presidential nominee of a major party in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the Presidency,” the suit states.

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, calling the alleged collusion “an act of unprecedented treachery.”

President Trump tweeted about this news and seemed very excited about it: “Just heard the Campaign was sued by the Obstructionist Democrats. This can be good news in that we will now counter for the DNC Server that they refused to give to the FBI, the Debbie Wasserman Schultz Servers and Documents held by the Pakistani mystery man and Clinton Emails.”
