DNC lawsuit against Russia & Trump promises ‘tantalizingly fascinating’ blowback

The Democratic National Committee’s lawsuit against Russia, WikiLeaks and the Trump campaign is spurious and might spectacularly backfire, provided it doesn’t get thrown out of court, legal and media analyst Lionel has told RT.

“If a judge does not dismiss this, I will be shocked,” Lionel said, pointing out that the 56-page complaint doesn’t actually name President Donald Trump and offers no evidence of guilt, only a “series of narratives: a story about here, a name here, Jared Kushner, Roger Stone, collusion…”

“It’s a last gasp at validating how Hillary Clinton lost a rigged election,” Lionel said. “This is spurious. This is a waste of time, and it shows how desperate and how pathetic the DNC are. They need grief counseling. They need professional help, not a lawyer.”

If a judge doesn’t dismiss the suit outright, the discovery process would allow the defendants to depose the plaintiffs and expose the inner workings of the DNC, and to identify specifically what Russia is actually being accused of in terms of the 2016 US presidential election

“This would be just tantalizingly fascinating,” Lionel said.
