BREAKING!!!...about time

DNC sues Russia, Trump campaign and WikiLeaks, alleging conspiracy

BY AVERY ANAPOL - 04/20/18 11:10 AM EDT/THE HILL

The Democratic National Committee is suing the Russian government, the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks, alleging that the three entities conspired to help President Trump win the 2016 election.

The Washington Post reported Friday that the DNC filed the multi-million dollar lawsuit in federal district court in Manhattan.

ďDuring the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found a willing and active partner in Donald Trumpís campaign,Ē DNC chairman Tom Perez said in a statement.

ďThis 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."

The suit comes months after special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian groups in his investigation on charges related to interference in the election.

26. And the day we stop saying "about time" when related to Democratic politicians

actions will be a great day.

Every "about time" hinders new voters from voting.

I might myself be guilty of saying it once or twice, if I am I will also stop saying it.

4. Go Dems !!!

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

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

He gave them to Wikileaks (Assange) to release whenever was the best time. So those two assholes were working together. If it weren't for them, Hillary would probably be POTUS now.

I donít use the term lightly, and itís not all Republicans. However, the Trump administration is full of traitors. They sought our enemyís help to win the election. They served Russiaís agenda.

There needs to be consequences. This is a good start.

19. I would expect a very limited chance for success,

if you define "success" as a monetary or in-kind award or settlement at the end of it all. But, having the power of discovery and a certain amount of media attention may well prove to be a big W, even if the suit is withdrawn at some point.

So if Dump does follow through and fires Mueller, he can't stop the lawsuits. He can't stop the Cohen investigation, the inevitable state investigations if he should fire Mueller and now, the civil lawsuits will also pick it up. He has no moves left.

Just today, we have this and McCabe. Then, the 3-4 women (I canít keep track) suing for defamation or to break their NDAís. Emoluments, various federal and state charges related to Russia, and more Iím forgetting right now...

They already have trouble getting any decent lawyers to rep them...No doubt, there are others out there who have been hurt by the Donís organization. Itís time for those people to step forward now, when his resources are being spread thin enough that he canít bully his way through everything.

47. Our illegitimate "president".

In a just world, the moment this election was found to be influenced by the Russians, it would have been considered null and void. The second it was discovered that TrumpCo. was involved with the Russians his candidacy would have been disallowed, and the next Republican in line - according to the primaries - would run against Hillary in the re-election. There would be no advertising, no campaigning, just another election. Some may think that punitive to the GOP, but fuck them. They knew, or should have known that something was rotten in the first place.

That would be in a just world. In our world we get a fucking orange, narcissistic lunatic running our country.

According to President Cheese Whip, he's got several laying around.

The DNC spent almost that much defending themselves against the stolen information.

My only regret is they didn't include Fox News among the Defendants.
