Trump Rips Dems on Russia Lawsuit: Sued GOP for 'Winning'

Dan Bongino got into a heated argument with former Hillary Clinton senior adviser Philippe Reines Saturday over the Democratic National Committee's (DNC) lawsuit alleging a widespread conspiracy to tilt the 2016 election in Donald Trump's favor.

Reines called the lawsuit one of "last resort", when asked why it took the DNC over a year to file it. "This constituted an act of unprecedented treachery". "This frivolous lawsuit is a last-ditch effort to substantiate the baseless Russian collusion allegations by a nearly-bankrupt Democratic Party still trying to counter the will of the people in the 2016 presidential election", a statement from the Donald J Trump for President campaign said, according to BBC.

Requests for comment from the Russian embassy in Washington were not immediately returned.

Fred Jennings, a lawyer who specialises in cybercrime, has revealed that a glaring omission could derail the lawsuit filed by Democrats against President Donald Trump and Russian Federation.

Reines answered, "I don't know, ask [former DNC chair] Debbie Wasserman Schultz".

The "brazen attack on American democracy" began with a cyberattack on DNC computers and phone systems in 2015, allowing the extraction of tens of thousands of documents and e-mails, the DNC said.

Russian Federation has not been officially notified about the U.S. Democratic Party's lawsuit over the results of the 2016 presidential election in the United States, the Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.

That conspiracy violated the laws of the US, Virginia and the District of Columbia, and "under the laws of this nation, Russian Federation and its coconspirators must answer for these actions", the lawsuit says.
