The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump.
The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found a willing and active partner in Donald Trumps campaign, DNC Chairman Tom Perez said in a statement.
This constituted an act of unprecedented treachery: the campaign of a nominee for President of the United States in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the presidency, he said.
The case asserts that the Russian hacking campaign combined with Trump associates contacts with Russia and the campaigns public cheerleading of the hacks amounted to an illegal conspiracy to interfere in the election that caused serious damage to the Democratic Party.
Senate investigators and prosecutors for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III are still investigating whether Trump associates coordinated with the Russian efforts. Last month, House Intelligence Committee Republicans said they found no evidence that President Trump and his affiliates colluded with Russian officials to sway the election or that the Kremlin sought to help him a conclusion rejected by the panels Democrats.

The next sound you hear will be like that of a backfiring car ... on 3, 2 ...
The DNC would seem to lack ‘standing’ in such a suit.
America has been involved in foreign countries for years. Why the heck does Americans fall for this Democrat spiel? The Democrat Party is Evil and deserve to be destroyed.
Uhhhh...the not so vast right-wing conspiracy.
Would Wiki take a bullet for Hillary and claim they worked with Trump?
In other words, telling the truth is a crime to the DNC.
Allows discovery on the DNC.
A counter suit by Trump for damages of billions will destroy the DNC for all time. They are playing in the big boys sand lot now. This is Donald’s stomping grounds.
OK, lets have a look at the server first to see where that leads.
They must have found a Real Corrupt Judge ,LOL. Why now ,they say they’ll control the House and Senate next Election and then Hang anyone they want ,LOL
How about we charge every democrat with attempting to overthrow the US government? You know, kind of lime what they’re trying to do right now.
I love the smell of desperation in the morning...and afternoon...and evening.
You’d think that Gore 2000 had taught them, you can’t sue your way into the White House.
...John, I think they’ve finally topped you.
The DNC has officially gone crazy. I thought they had money problems, and I wonder how much money they will spend on this lawsuit rather than elections.
AA publicity stunt to generate talking points in the mid term elections.
If we get stuck with a judge who takes an expansive and far left view in judicial power, this could get ugly. If we get a real judge, there is only one constitutional remedy to challenge the certified result of a presidential election, and that is impeachment.
This is hilarious! They never deny that the stuff WikiLeaks put out wasn’t true.
Sounds like “Look over there! Don’t look at me!”
I'm pretty sure that Obama, his DOJ, FBI, CIA and other associates CONSPIRED TO DISRUPT THE 2016 ELECTION OF DONALD J. TRUMP, BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER HIS VICTORY.
too bad the Burn got paid off..
