Trump Campaign Lashes Out Over DNC Collusion Lawsuit

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump appears at campaign rally in Grand Rapids

As special counsel Robert Mueller continues his investigation into whether Trump associates abetted the Russian government, House Intelligence Committee Republicans last month said they found no evidence that Mr Trump and his affiliates colluded with Russian officials.

The Democratic Party sued Donald Trump's presidential campaign, Russia, WikiLeaks, and Trump's son and son-in-law Friday, accusing them of an intricate conspiracy to undercut Democrats in the 2016 election by stealing tens of thousands of emails and documents.

It alleged that senior men within Trump's campaign conspired with the Kremlin in a bid to scuttle Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who was known to have worse relation with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The case allows the plaintiffs to force President Donald Trump and his 2016 campaign aides to answer questions under oath, according to Napolitano.

But Jennings said that the DNC's lawyers failing to properly define their computers means that claim might be vulnerable to a motion to dismiss from defence lawyers "before any fact discovery" occurs in the discovery phase.

Over the next two months, the reports suggested U.S. intelligence agencies had traced the breaches back to Russian hackers. That litigation is still in progress. Currently, two conspicuous names that aren't defendants in the suit are former national security adviser Michael Flynn and the President himself.




In addition to Russian Federation, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) also joined Donald Trump, Paul Manafort, Rojer Stone, Wikipedia, Julian Assange, Jared Kushner, Guccifer 2.0, and others as defendants alleging violations of a wide array of federal laws, including the CFAA, RICO the Wiretap Act, the Stored Communications Act, the DMCA, and the Defend Trade Secrets Act, as well as common law trespass and trespass to chattels.

"The Democratic National Committee was the first major target of the Russian attack on our democracy, and I strongly believe that every individual who helped carry it out - foreign or domestic - should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law", Rep. Manafort has been indicted by the special counsel, while Gates and Papadopoulos have both pleaded guilty to different charges.

The Democrats accused Trump's campaign of being "a racketeering enterprise" that worked with the Russians and WikiLeaks in a conspiracy that included hacking email servers at the DNC and leaking damaging information to the public.

Techdirt, a site that deals with technology and legal issues, analyzed the suit and reported that the laws cited in the DNC suit generally indicate "pretty weak lawsuits", adding that some of the claims "are so outrageous that they would effectively make some fairly basic reporting illegal".

Instead it knits numerous threads that have emerged in public over the past two years to create a picture of an alleged conspiracy between the Trump campaign, the Kremlin and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

It was ultimately successful and the Nixon campaign settled for $US750,000 on the day Mr Nixon left office in 1974.
