I am very frustrated to report all the Democrats have to do with their time and energy is to sue the Trump Campaign, Russia, and Wikileaks. First of all, are they not afraid what will come out about the DNC? Sure their party was destroyed by Trump, Russia, and Wikileaks- they had nothing to do with it – the Awans were not hired by the DNC in the IT Department, and they did not send intelligence to Pakistan – no, that did not happen – think again, it did! The Democrats came apart from within – they destroyed themselves. Ask Bernie Sanders and Seth Rich!
Trump himself is not being sued, though his campaign, his son Don Jr., his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and his associates Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, and George Papadopoulos are, along with many others. The complaint was filed today in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
It claims violations of everything from the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to the Wiretap Act to the Stored Communications Act, plus two racketeering violations, a.k.a. RICO claims under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.
The Democratic National Committee alleges in the suit that Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government to disrupt the US elections by hacking Democratic Party computer networks and disseminating the stolen data.
The filing says that Russia’s hacking campaign was combined with Trump associates’ Russia contacts, and the Trump team then publicly condoned the actions.
I thought this was about to come to an end, but I guess I was naïve to think that. Evil manipulators will never give up until they are brought down by the hand of God.
“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 said in a statement. He called it an “act of unprecedented treachery.”
The lawsuit said Trump and his associates had existing relationships with Russia and Russian oligarchs that enabled creation of a Trump-Russia conspiracy.
Trump has said repeatedly that there was no collusion between his campaign and Russia.
The lawsuit alleges the “brazen attack on American democracy” began with a cyberattack on DNC computers and phone systems, allowing the extraction of tens of thousands of documents and emails. It said the assault enabled Russia to advance its own interests and support Trump.
The lawsuit accuses Donald Trump Jr. of secretly communicating with WikiLeaks, saying the president’s son was offered a password to an anti-Trump lawsuit in one exchange.
The lawsuit blames the president too, saying he praised the illegal dissemination of DNC documents throughout fall 2016, making it a central theme of his speeches and rallies.
The lawsuit said Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, was part of the conspiracy as a senior adviser and key decision-makers in the campaign. It said he began in June 2016 to control all campaign data-driven efforts, beginning with establishment of a 100-person “data hub” in San Antonio, Texas, and by hiring Cambridge Analytica, the social media and analytics firm.
The lawsuit said the conspiracy “inflicted profound damage upon the DNC,” costing it donations and preventing it from communicating the party’s values and vision to voters and sowing discord inside the Democratic Party.
“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,” the lawsuit said. “And, in carrying out this effort, defendants’ conspiracy to disseminate documents stolen from the DNC in violation of the laws of the United States as well as the laws of the state of Virginia and the District of Columbia. Under the laws of this nation, Russia and its co-conspirators must answer for these actions.”
The emails and personal files of at least 44 House Democrats could have been stolen and transferred overseas by their own IT workers, in a scandal that has been quietly brewing in Congress.
At the center of the controversy are Imran Awan, his brother Abid Awan, and five other family members and associates.
They worked as shared IT employees for 44 House Democrats and had access to the House members’ sensitive data, including emails, calendars, constituents’ data, and personal files, despite having little to no IT experience.
“Minhas said “Imran Awan said to me directly these words: ‘See how I control White House on my fingertip…’ He say he can fire the prime minister or change the U.S. president,” Minhas said. “Why the claiming big stuff, I [didn’t] understand ’till now.”
“I was Imran father’s partner in Pakistan,” Minhas said, in two land deals in Pakistan so big that they are often referred to as “towns.” In 2009, both men were accused of fraud, and Haji was arrested but then released after Imran flew to Pakistan, “allegedly… exerting pressure on the local police through the ministry as well as the department concerned,” according to local news. Minhas and multiple alleged victims in Pakistan also told TheDCNF Imran exerted political influence in Pakistan to extricate his father from the case.
Minhas is now in U.S. federal prison for additional fraud, and TheDCNF could not confirm whether Minhas’ claims about the USBs are true. But Minhas said the DOJ or FBI never interviewed him about the Awans, an indicator the potential for espionage may not have been explored extensively. The probe involves money allegedly disappearing to Pakistan and Minhas was, prominently, their business partner there.”
