Jackasses Bray Again: DNC Suing Trump Campaign
Democrats desperately attempt to show their base they're commitment to fight against Trump.
Spite is a pretty lousy political message, but Democrats appear hell-bent on preaching it anyway. Case in point: On Friday the Democratic National Committee filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump’s campaign, the Russian government and WikiLeaks, alleging the three acted in an election collusion conspiracy. DNC Chairman Tom Perez claimed, “During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found a willing and active partner in Donald Trump’s campaign.” He added, “The conspiracy constituted an act of previously unimaginable treachery: the campaign of the presidential nominee of a major party in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the Presidency.” In other words, Democrats need money and want their base to know that they are still committed to the #Resistance.
Trump responded, “Just heard the Campaign was sued by the Obstructionist Democrats. This can be good news in that we will now counter for the DNC Server that they refused to give to the FBI, the Debbie Wasserman Schultz Servers and Documents held by the Pakistani mystery man and Clinton Emails.”
Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, called the lawsuit a “sham … filed by a desperate, dysfunctional, and nearly insolvent Democrat Party.” He added, “With the Democrats’ conspiracy theories against the President’s campaign evaporating as quickly as the failing DNC’s fundraising, they’ve sunk to a new low to raise money, especially among small donors who have abandoned them.” Parscale also said that he would be working aggressively to uncover DNC corruption if the lawsuit were not immediately dismissed.
But the DNC’s ignoble lawsuit hasn’t earned the ire of just Republicans — many Bernie Sanders supporters responded negatively as well. Tim Canova, a Sanders supporter who challenged Wasserman Schultz in her 2016 primary, stated, “They [DNC] still haven’t done a postmortem of why they lost the election, because the explanation for everything is Russia.” He also astutely noted, “They were losing midterm elections before anything got hacked.”
Ironically, the DNC believes that ignoring both the voice of the people via the 2016 election results and the facts will constitute a winning formula for convincing voters that they are working to “save democracy.” Do they even know what that word means? (Never mind the fact that the U.S. is a constitutional republic, whose representatives are democratically elected.) Since the moment of Trump’s election victory, Democrats and their cohorts in the mainstream media have been incessantly beating the drum of a supposed Trump/Russia collusion conspiracy with no supporting evidence to justify the charge. Even Robert Mueller’s special investigation, ostensibly initiated to investigate Russian collusion, now appears to have given up on that narrative and instead looks to be angling for an obstruction case. This smells of the desperation of an organization that has run out of any constructive ideas and has instead relegated itself to the proverbial peanut gallery.
