DNC Sues Russia, Trump Campaign for 2016 Election Conspiracy

“The Democratic Party sued the Russian government, U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign and WikiLeaks on Friday, charging that they carried out a wide-ranging conspiracy to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election,” Reuters reports.

“The lawsuit alleged that Trump’s campaign ‘gleefully welcomed Russia’s help’ in the 2016 election and accuses it of being a ‘racketeering enterprise’ that worked in tandem with Moscow.”

“Defendants in the lawsuit include three people who have been indicted as a result of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian meddling: former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Manafort associate Rick Gates and former campaign aide George Papadopoulos.

Also named as defendants were Donald Trump Jr., Trump associate Roger Stone and Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.”
