Democrat lawsuit accuses Trump and his team of 'gleefully welcoming Russia's help'

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.

The Democratic Party filed a lawsuit Friday alleging that Russia, WikiLeaks and top officials from Donald Trump's campaign conspired to tilt the 2016 USA presidential election in the Republican's favor.

The case, which was filed in a Manhattan federal district court, seeks to establish that Trump campaign officials conspired with Russian Federation in an illegal cyberattack on the DNC. The lawsuit names Trump, the Russian government, the Trump campaign, and Wikileaks as defendants.

Every political Democrat has been charging that the Trump campaign was in collusion with Wikileaks, etc., etc.

In a statement issued Friday morning, Tom Perez, chair of the Democratic party, said the lawsuit is meant to hold Trump and his campaign accountable for their actions. "This constituted an act of unprecedented treachery".

The Democratic Party says the cyberattack did untold damage, including sowing discord within the party ahead of the election, compromising their internal and external communication, causing a dramatic drop in donations and undermining their ability to communicate with the American public.

The hacking of the DNC has always been a sore spot for Democrats across the board since Clinton's stunning loss in November 2016.

Following his upset election win over Hillary Clinton in 2016, many wondered how Donald Trump was able to pull off the victory.

The DNC accuses Donald Trump Jr. of secretly communicating with WikiLeaks, and blames the president, too, saying he praised the illegal dissemination of DNC documents throughout fall 2016, making it a central theme of his speeches and rallies.

President Trump, on the other hand, has repeatedly rejected any collusion in his presidential campaign.

In April of 2016, for instance, Trump foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos "met with a Kremlin-tied agent" who told him about the DNC breach just four days after it happened.

Trump's legal team, meanwhile, is expanding with the addition of former federal prosecutor and NY mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is vowing to seek a swift resolution to the special counsel probe. In 1972, the DNC sued President Richard Nixon's reelection committee seeking $1 million in damages for the break-in at Democratic headquarters in the Watergate building. But the civil action brought by the DNC's then-chairman, Lawrence O'Brien, was successful, yielding a $750,000 settlement from the Nixon campaign that was reached on the day in 1974 that Nixon left office.
