Cash-Strapped DNC Files Multi-Million-Dollar Lawsuit Alleging Trump-Russia Collusion

The Democratic National Committee, which has floundered in raising money since President Trump’s election, decided Friday to spend much of its remaining funds on a lawsuit alleging coordination between Russian intelligence and the Trump campaign.

Still smarting after their historic defeat, national Democrats are failing to find any traction with donors. Now they’re suing the Trump campaign and Russia, seeking damages for their fundraising drought.

According to CNBC, the party filed a suit in New York federal court, alleging collusion that stole the 2016 election:

The multi-million-dollar lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court says that “In the Trump campaign, Russia found a willing and active partner in this effort” to mount “a brazen attack on American Democracy.”

The common purpose of the scheme, according to the Democratic National Committee, was to “bolster Trump and denigrate the Democratic Party nominee,” Hillary Clinton, while boosting the candidate of Trump, “whose policies would benefit the Kremlin.”

The suit claims that the alleged coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russian government negatively affected the DNC’s fundraising. They are seeking millions in compensation.
