    Not The Onion.

    Did The Democrats’ “The Russians did it” narrative just jump the shark?

    The Washington Post reports that 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.

    DNC Chairman Tom Perez said in a statement…

    “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,”

    “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,”

    The case asserts that the Russian hacking campaign – combined with Trump associates’ contacts with Russia and the campaign’s public cheerleading of the hacks – amounted to an illegal conspiracy to interfere in the election that caused serious damage to the Democratic Party.

    We look forward to Trump’s tweeted response to this farce.

    As a reminder, the president has repeatedly rejected any collusion or improper activity by his campaign. This week, he referred again in a tweet to the “phony Russia investigation where, by the way, there was NO COLLUSION (except by the Dems).”

    The Washington Post notes that the lawsuit echoes a similar legal tactic that the Democratic Party used during the Watergate scandal.

    In 1972, the DNC filed suit against then President Richard Nixon’s reelection committee seeking $1 million in damages for the break-in at Democratic headquarters in the Watergate building.

    The suit was denounced at the time by Nixon’s attorney general, John Mitchell, who called it a case of “sheer demagoguery” by the DNC. But the civil action brought by former DNC chair Lawrence F. O’Brien was ultimately successful, yielding a $750,000 settlement from the Nixon campaign that was reached on the day in 1974 that Nixon left office.

    The suit filed today seeks millions of dollars in compensation to offset damage it claims the party suffered from the hacks. The DNC argues that the cyberattack undermined its ability to communicate with voters, collect donations and operate effectively as its employees faced personal harassment and, in some cases, death threats.

        The Democrat Party has lost its way.
        These snowflakes need to grow up, grow a pair of balls and start doing whats right for this country.
        Both parties are corrupt, knock off the New World Order/Globalist bull shit.
        You were elected to put America first.
        Start by obeying and following The Constitution and the Bill Of Rights!

            I’d like to see roughly 500 nooses being put to good use in DC.

            • Concerned Citizen

              7.62 – Only 500?? I would like to see a nice 6-pk of ICBM’s rain down on DC, God’s honest truth.

              It would take more nooses than just 500. They would need to set up a minimum of 50 freshly-sharpened guillotines on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. and “process” 24 hours a day.

        Bernie should sue Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Hillary, and the DNC for conspiring to hurt his bid for the nomination.

          I think we should all file a class action lawsuit against both parties and DC for their interference in our Life, Liberty and pursuit of happiness,,,,

            I think GOPe are idiots, they are well
            on their way to proving it beyond a
            reasonable doubt.

            • JustMe

                There are a few Republicans that are even worse than Democrats. John McCain for one. Also Bloomberg was a Republican, a RINO like McCain. Got rope? It’s beyond time for a few hangings.

        • John Stiner

          Bernie should sue Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Hillary, and the DNC for conspiring to hurt his bid for the nomination.

          Maybe he should sue for hurting his feelings.

              The lawsuit does not matter. It is the next 15 days of reporting on the lawsuit in the media that matters.

              It is a propaganda war for you mind.

      4. Whatever

        The DNC should sue Mrs Bill Clinton for letting the world know what a cesspool the DNC is.

        • John Stiner

          That is the scary part. The world already knew what a crook and cesspool the democrats and Hillary are and they STILL voted for her anyway.

      5. the blame-e

        “During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy . . . .”

        Here’s how you know the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Hillary Clinton, McCabe, Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice, the Podesta brothers, Huma Abedin, John Brennan, James Clapper, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, George Soros, the high school dropout Jennifer Lawrence, et al, they have all gone insane.

        The United States of America doesn’t have a democracy, we have a republic, and not even that because, in truth, what we really have is a federal republic, where all the power in concentrated in one place, The Swamp (oops) Washington, DC.

        After the first Constitutional Convention was decided in 1787, a Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

        In a democracy the people are the “deciders.” They vote all the time. In a republic the people vote for who will be doing the deciding for them (In theory anyway. In practice the reality may be another thing.)

        Thomas Jefferson, along with many of our Founding Fathers considered democracy “rule by the mob.” The idea of a democracy scared our Founding Fathers sh*t-less.

        Anybody who tells you we have a democracy is a bald-faced liar a propagandist, and a Russia lover.

        Simple as that.

        • JRS

          Yea, it’s no longer a republic. That ended with the War of Northern Aggression. It’s not a republic if you don’t belong by free will.

          The name of the system is then called “empire”.

          • NewVegasBadger

            And this empire is following in the path to demise in the same way all previous empires have fallen. SSDD.
            To add to what the blame-e posted, we were doomed when it came to pass that our politicians found they could buy votes by promising to spend other peoples money. AKA robbing Paul to pay Peter.

And disarm us so we can not resist tgeir slavery. 3ews are the problem. They are Jealous of America and our people. And why they been kicked out of 100+ other countries over the centuries. Rissia has no 3ew problem. They nipped that parasite in the butt. Id give them 48 hours to leave America of face the Oven. Hitler nailed it. 3ews are an infestation cancer on America. TheyvHijacked Hollywood and why todays movies are filth. Parasite Bankers, The Fed, the courts. Its all in shambles. 2.1 million 3ews in America causing all this BS.

          I hear that

          hell I go 1 step further

          I ask if they voted ,, and if the answer is yes, than thats enough for me to know the level of stupidity I’m dealing with

          hey , doing the same thing over and over and never getting a good outcome is the definition of insanity or flat out stupidity

          if voting worked , it would be illegal

          when has voting for your next oppressor ever been a good idea?

          • The Deplorable Braveheart

            You should vote when you have a ballot issue where taxes are going to be increased (i.e., vote AGAINST the tax increases). Voting for politicians or judges is another story.

        Communism is not called Communism. In the USA it is called democracy.

        Communism is responsible for feminism, sexualization of children, theft of the wealth of Countries, murder on the grandest scale in history, loss of privacy and loss of civil rights.

        Communism is a grand fraud. It is not what it pretends to be.

        While the framers did not define who could vote in the original Constitution, it was only landowners that were generally allowed to vote. Although it was left up to the colony to have it’s own rules at the start. Then it was a “republic”.

        Eventually, non land owners, 3/5s, and women were given the vote. It began to turn into mob rule.

        Then the Civil War came and the states were no longer free to decide their own fate. No longer a republic, the US graduated to empire and they have not stopped since.

        Voting doesn’t count when the bosses get their own way regardless.

        • CH3CH2OH

          Each vote should have a weighting factor based on 1) IQ, 2) land owned, 3) age, 4) residence.

          Votes should not be equally counted. If I’m 62, born in the USA, own 20 acres of land, and have a higher than average IQ, my vote should count much higher than some snowflake low-IQ punk living in section 8 housing, for example.

            Absolutely. That means Hillary and her paper husband Baby Balls. That means Chelsea and her husband. That means Chelsea’s two evil spawn. There is no other option in the matter. If you don’t get rid of the entire bloodline, you’re going to be fighting this war all over again 40 years from now. It’s no different than exterminating mice or rats to get them out of your house.

            There will be tens of thousands besides the Clintons who meet that same fate. The sealed indictment count is up to somewhere in the neighborhood of 28,000 and counting. Not only do you need to rendition the 28,000 people named in these indictments, you need to rendition their spouses/partners, children, grandchildren, and even great grandchildren. There will be no other option than to quarantine these bloodlines, then exterminate them.

            If you’re wondering why so many Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club stores suddenly closed, there’s your answer. They’re going to be used as internment centers for these people. Gitmo is beefed up and expanded for a reason: the worst of the worst in globalist traitors. All Sam’s Clubs in Alaska shuttered to become internment centers for the globalist traitors who don’t quite make the cut to get renditioned to Gitmo.

        So Debbie Wasserman Shultz rigged the Democratic primary. When fired stated “I took one for the team”. No way this could have effected the election. Muller has already stated Trump isn’t the subject of the investigation so no collusion is likely. After a year there is no proof. Seth Rich…
        The list will only grow. DNC is only bringing attention to itself. Given the criminal behavior within the DNC that we already know of, they would be better off to STFU and fade into history.
        DNC is imploding. All conservatives have to do is grab our popcorn and watch the show. Life is good.

        “Did The Democrats’ “The Russians did it” narrative just jump the shark?”

        Other questions / quotes that puzzle me:

        – “If we ever see tyranny in this country …” – people are still waiting to see tyranny
        – “are we in the last days the Bible talks about?” – hum … I wonder, are we?
        – “won’t gun control help control guns?” – By definition, but what are you controling? The good or the bad? Have you even considered the good and the bad?
        – “how long until the economy tanks?” – everything is peachy
        – “It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.” – ROFL!

        We have come full circle with the libtarded. Russian collusion vs. McCarthyism. Trump and the hooker vs. Bill, the cigar, Monica, and what is is. Sodom and Gamorrah vs. the Rainbow fliers.

        The rainbow is now the representation of all things LGBTTQQIAAP (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, ally, pansexual), or this little gem: QUILTBAG (queer and questioning, intersex, lesbian, transgender and two-spirit, bisexual, asexual and ally, and gay and genderqueer).

        They don’t even know what they hijacked is the sign of the covenant between God, and Noah (and all of us) promising to never destroy the world’s life again.

        They all joined together on the left, and are even calling for war against conservatives and Christians. But they disarmed themselves, so how is that going to play out?

        But, but, but, we can fix this. ROFL

        This is about the Democrats keeping there base fired up till the next election. Their plan is to take the house and then Trump will be impeached, will not matter for what it WILL happen. The Senate trail will be a crap shoot but even if the Rhinos don’t oust him the remainder of his Presidency will be toast. This is the deep state sending a message to anybody not willing to play by the rule book, “This is what happens to people who aren’t in the (club)” America will never elect an outsider again. And the band will play on.

      25. Brian

        Every day, foreign governments influence this country’s political process through lobbyists. The difference between bribery and lobbying is a set of rules on how the influencing is done. The people who benefit from the influencing are the ones who enforce the rules. It is like legalized prostitution. It will go on regardless of the laws;better to control it. The same philosophy with the lobbying. Bribers and lobbyists are very much alike. If the Russians influenced the Presidential election, then shame on us for not effectively shielding the process better. The fact that the Democrats are operating outside official channels indicates that the inquiries have yielded nothing.

        The situation of the country requires that decisions be made on what is best for America and its people. Instead, people are using their influence to enrich themselves. It’s no wonder that the country is in such trouble.

        “For Conspiring To Hurt Hillary In 2016 Election”
        So the democrats were not conspiring to hurt Trump in the 2016 election? Two years and the dims still cannot get over the loss.

        Better hope people think about what happens when they vote in the midterms. There will be total chaos in Congress if the dems win. Impeachment? That’s when the shooting starts……. You want Pelosi,Waters and Wasserman Shultz running the show? Not this guy.

          J in VA,
          At least none of the people you mentioned would be martyred like JFK or RFK were. Someone will get rid of them.

        If DNC wants to sue the person who hurt Hillary most, sue Hillary Clinton. Every time she spoke, she irritate the hell out of me! I’m sure she affected a lot of Americans the same way. Drop a house on her and free the Munchkins!

        Acts of desperation. The deep state is losing control with each passing day. Soon these lowlifes will be turning on each other. Can’t wait to see justice finally served in this country.

        NEVER in the field of human politics has so much hysteria been generated by so many for so little return.

        I have never seen such a thing in my 79 years.

        The whole world is in a state of bemusement.

      35. Steadfast

        Two thoughts on why this is just a media circus….a. The DNC can’t prove anything they assert as they’ve destroyed their own evidences by hammer.
        And
        B.) the Lawyers have done all their billing weighted towards the front of this suit, meaning they know its going absolutely nowhere fast.

      36. 2018 Is Now

        Wasserman- Schultz. Holder. Jarrett. Lynch. Abedin. Podestas. Club Fed is waiting.
        Killery and The Kenyan, maybe worse. Executive orders rewritten. Military tribunals.
        Some Repubes may be joining them. Talking about you, McCain.

        Until the cesspool of our education system is purged completely of the progressives/ leftists/ socialists/ communists that are indoctrinating our kids with their propaganda from grades K through college, the D.C. Swamp will continually be replenished by brainwashed low-information voters.
