Democratic Party alleges Trump campaign-Russia conspiracy in new lawsuit

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez delivers remarks

The multimillion-dollar complaint argues that top Trump campaign officials worked with Russian operatives to hack the email servers of the Democratic Party and leak information that was damaging to Clinton.

Taking a page from its response to the Watergatebreak-in, the Democratic National Committee filed suit on Friday against President Donald Trump's campaign, the Russian government and WikiLeaks for allegedly engaging in a conspiracy to damage the Democratic Party during the 2016 presidential race.

CNN political analyst Gloria Borger on Friday dismissed a lawsuit announced by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) against Russia, WikLleaks and the Trump campaign, saying it's "a 100 percent stunt" and "just a way to raise money".

The company revealed the size of the layoffs when it filed Worker Adjustment and Re-Training Act notices, as required by law. Qualcomm has other major locations in the state and around the world.

Blitzer started his interview by asking whether the lawsuit lends credence to the idea that the Russian Federation investigation is sour grapes from the Democratic Party.

In a statement, the President dismissed the suit saying "This frivolous lawsuit is a last ditch effort to substantiate the baseless Russian collusion allegations by a almost bankrupt Democratic Party still trying to counter the will of the people in the 2016 presidential election".

Democrats have similarly been critical of President Barack Obama for not doing enough in 2016 to fight back against Russian Federation.

This Diamond-Laced Meteorite Could Be From Earth's Long-Lost Planetary Sibling
Some of these bodies were almost as big as Mars and one of them, dubbed Theia, collided with Earth to throw our moon into orbit. The substances which are trapped inside the diamonds can only be formed in the pressure which is about 20 gigapascals (GPa).

But the campaign also warned that if the lawsuit is allowed to proceed by a judge, the campaign will use the legal discovery process to "explore the DNC's now-secret records about the actual corruption they perpetrated to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election". DNC emails were released to the public by WikiLeaks in the heart of the 2016 campaign and were often used by Trump as a way to deride former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Trump, administration officials and campaign aides all deny they conspired with the Russian active measures campaign. It also targets a Russian military intelligence service, the GRU, which the USA government accused of interfering in the election.

The lawsuit startled Republicans in Washington, D.C., and Democratic leaders, who were only briefed at the last minute about the DNC's plans to pursue civil litigation. DNC staffers at the time accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation of not doing enough immediately after the hack was discovered in 2015 to alert them to the problem. It is going to court and it is going to sue because it lost what should have been the "unlosable" presidential election.
