Desperation: DNC lawsuit against Russians, Trump campaign, Wikileaks, alleges conspiracy in 2016 election

In its apparent effort to advance the tinfoil-hat conspiracy theory that the Trump campaign plotted with the Russians and Wikileaks to throw the election, the DNC filed a multimillion dollar lawsuit in federal district court in Manhattan against the Trump campaign, Wikileaks and the Russian government, alleging the three entities worked to throw the 2016 election to Trump.

“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,” DNC Chairman Tom Perez said.

“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 added.

Of course, this is absolute hogwash and chances are, Perez knows it, but is apparently so desperate to keep his base unhinged that he is willing to do or say anything.

According to The Hill:

The DNC is seeking millions of dollars in damages related to the hacked DNC emails that WikiLeaks published during the campaign, according to the Post.

The lawsuit alleges that hacking and publishing the DNC emails was part of a larger conspiracy to damage Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign and help Trump win the election.

The suit names as defendants several Trump campaign aides who met with Russian nationals during the campaign, including campaign chairman Paul Manafort and deputy chairman Richard Gates, both of whom have since been charged in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the election.

The DNC lawsuit also names Donald Trump Jr., Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner and on-and-off Trump confidant Roger Stone.

The Hill further said that, “the House Intelligence Committee, one of several congressional committees also investigating Russian election meddling, shut down its investigation earlier this year, asserting that they found no evidence of collusion.”

Democrats, however, were unable to accept that conclusion just have they have been unwilling and unable to accept the fact that Trump won the election.

Reaction on Twitter was, well, predictable.


The Daily Mail’s David Martosko noted:


And then there’s this:


As we’ve reported, Wikileaks has repeatedly said they did not get the information from Russia, and an analysis indicates the information was leaked, not hacked.

But it seems that Democrats don’t live in this place we like to call reality.  In either case, this should prove interesting.
