Still refusing to disembark the Denial Train, the Democratic Party is suing Russia, the Trump campaign and Wikileaks, claiming the three conspired to help Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential election.

CNBC reports:

The multi-million-dollar lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court says that "In the Trump campaign, Russia found a willing and active partner in this effort" to mount "a brazen attack on American Democracy," which included Russian infiltration of the Democratic Party computer network.

The Trump campaign, according to the lawsuit, "gleefully welcomed Russia's help."

The suit says that "preexisting relationships with Russia and Russian oligarchs" with Trump and Trump associates "provided fertile ground for [the] Russia-Trump conspiracy."

The suit specifically calls out Trump's son Donald Trump Jr., his son-in-law Jared Kushner, former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort and campaign official Richard Gates, as well as Roger Stone.

“Also named is the Russian Federation, the general staff of the Russian armed force, a Russian intelligence services hacker known as Guccifer 2.0., Wikileaks and its leader Julian Assange, and 10 unidentified people,” CNBC reports.

DNC Chair Tom Perez claims the lawsuit “ is not partisan, it's patriotic."

Because it’s not like we've already had a special counsel investigation into this exact thing for nearly a year, or anything.

Honestly, I haven’t seen anything this desperate since Britney Spears started shaving her head and beating cars with umbrellas. And at least she was on drugs.
