Democrats Sue Russia And Trump Campaign, Alleging Conspiracy In 2016 Election

The 66-page complaint, filed in federal court in the Southern District of NY, claims that senior members of the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government to damage Clinton and seeks financial damages for the alleged hacks of the DNC's servers.

The 66-page lawsuit, filed in federal court in NY, assembles the publicly known facts of the investigation into Russia's election meddling to accuse Trump's associates of illegally working with Russian intelligence agents to interfere with the outcome of the election.

The president himself is not among them, but the DNC is suing the Trump campaign, the president's son, Donald Trump Jr., the president's son-in-law and White House adviser, Jared Kushner, longtime associate Roger Stone, and the indicted former Trump campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.

The Democratic National Committee isn't sitting around while Special Counsel Robert Mueller investigates Russia's role in the 2016 election.

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.

Tom Perez, chairman of the DNC, laid out the party's rationale for filing such a wide-reaching lawsuit in a post on Medium.

To date the allegations have moved from collusion to obstruction to vague corruption charges and a raid of Trump's lawyer's office.

The DNC has retained the law firm Cohen-Milstein, which has been involved in settlements for large data breaches in the past, including one against health insurer Anthem, which affected 80 million people.

The 66-page lawsuit accuses russian hackers of "stealing tens of thousands of documents and emails" from the DNC and outlines all the known contacts between Russians and the Trump campaign.

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

The lawsuit argues that Russian Federation is not entitled to sovereign immunity in this case because "the DNC claims arise out of Russia's trespass on to the DNC's private servers...in order to steal trade secrets and commit economic espionage". It also targets a Russian military intelligence service, the GRU, which the US government accused of interfering in the election. According to them, the hacker attacks have reduced the ability of Democrats to communicate with voters, raise donations and to operate efficiently, the newspaper said.
