Trump campaign responds to DNC’s “frivolous” lawsuit, promises there will be an “aggressive discovery phase” including “secret files”

There is a saying that goes, “Better to keep quiet and let people think you a fool than open your mouth and prove them right.”

Officials at the Democratic National Committee may have just shot off their mouths once too often over the sham allegations of “Trump-Russia collusion” in the 2016 election.

As you may have heard, the DNC filed a lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan on Friday alleging that the Trump campaign, Mother Russia, and WikiLeaks all “conspired” to “disrupt” the election, as a Washington Post headline put it.

The paper breathlessly reported:

The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump.

The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there.

“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,” DNC Chairman Tom Perez claimed in a statement.

“This constituted an act of unprecedented treachery: the campaign of a nominee for President of the United States in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the presidency,” he continued.

First things first: Has anyone alerted special counsel Robert Mueller that the DNC appears to have evidence that has eluded him and his team of 16 crack, mostly-Democrat-leaning lawyers for nearly a year? And at least three congressional committees? And the Justice Department? (Related: Comey’s new “tell-all” book about POTUS Trump is a huge nothing burger and will be swiftly discredited.)

Of course not. Because Perez and the DNC — like James Comey, Barack Obama, Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe, and Hillary Clinton — all know there is no collusion evidence because there was no collusion.

As The National Sentinel noted, this is nothing more than an act of desperation on the part of the DNC, a distraction aimed at keeping the Democratic base energized, “to reinvigorate them since core issues they’ve been pushing for months like the ‘impeachment’ of Trump are political losers.”

Gotta keep the “collusion” story going. Can’t tell our voters and supporters that they’ve been duped; that might keep them come November.

That said, the Trump campaign is all-in with this lawsuit. And it sounds as though Trump campaign officials can’t wait for the discovery phase of the process, so that all of the DNC’s dirty little secrets will come spilling out into the open. 

Like how the party screwed Sen. Bernie Sanders and rigged the nomination for Hillary. Like how the DNC’s computers weren’t really “hacked” by the Russians. And how the party conspired with a former British spy and an opposition research firm to create a bogus “Russia dossier” that formed the basis of improper and possibly illegal spying on the Trump campaign.

According to a statement from the campaign, the suit is “frivolous” and “a last-ditch effort to substantiate the baseless Russian collusion allegations…”

“This is a sham lawsuit about a bogus Russian collusion claim filed by a desperate, dysfunctional, and nearly insolvent Democratic Party,” said Brad Parscale, Campaign Manager of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.

“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.”

The statement noted further:

If this lawsuit proceeds, the Trump Campaign will be prepared to leverage the discovery process and explore the DNC’s now-secret records about the actual corruption they perpetrated to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. Everything will be on the table.

Let the games begin.
