Perez Falsely Claims DNC Is Not Fundraising off Their Lawsuit

"No," DNC Chair Tom Perez told NBC's Chuck Todd, while holding back his laughter.

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez falsely claimed on Sunday that the DNC was not using its questionable lawsuit against Russia and the Trump campaign to raise money.

NBC’s Chuck Todd asked the Perez if the DNC was, in fact, using the lawsuit to raise money, a criticism President Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale had made.

“No,” Perez said while holding back his laughter. “I’m laughing, Chuck, because those are almost the precise quotes we heard from the Nixon campaign in 1972.”

Perez then said that the DNC had filed the lawsuit to protect America’s democracy.

However, Perez’s claim that the DNC is not fundraising off the lawsuit is inaccurate.

Just a couple hours after the lawsuit was filed Perez and the DNC sent out an email to supporters touting the lawsuit, while also asking for donations.
