  • DNC files federal lawsuit against Russia Trump campaign and associatesSHARE:sharetweetshareemail

From a lawsuit filed Friday on behalf of the Democratic National Committee in New York's U.S. District Court.

United States President Donald Trump on Saturday said that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) filing for a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against his electoral campaign was a "good news".

According to the lawsuit, Russia's cyberattack began just weeks after Mr Trump announced his candidacy in June 2015 and within months European intelligence agencies were reporting suspicious communication between Trump associates and Russian operatives.

While suing the Russian government may pose legal obstacles to the DNC due to immunity from USA lawsuits granted to foreign governments, the party argues that its "brazen attack on US soil" constitutes a trespass on private property, according to The Post.

Four U.S. intelligence agencies reported a year ago that Russian Federation sponsored the hacking of Democratic Party groups and other actions during the 2016 campaign.

The 605 deputies selected a new 31-member Council of State and its new president from among names proposed by a commission. In fact, the National Assembly has asked Cubans to comment on social media under #SomosContinuidad (We are continuity).

Mr Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and former foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos - both listed in Friday's lawsuit - face charges included money laundering, conspiracy and making false statements to the FBI as part of Mr Mueller's investigation.

The party said the Trump defendants committed conspiracy through their interaction with Russian agents and their public encouragement of the hacking, with the campaign itself acting as a racketeering enterprise promoting illegal activity.

The DNC's 66-page complaint lays out in the detailed the alleged conspiracy among Trump, WikiLeaks and hackers working for the Russian government.

The lawsuit, should it go forward, seems likely to help keep the spotlight on the issue of Russian election interference and possible collusion by the Trump campaign.

The DNC also fingers Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner as a co-conspirator for his role overseeing the Trump campaign's digital operation.

The DNC is represented by the law firm Cohen-Milstein.

It said the hack penetrated DNC computers and phone systems and extracted tens of thousands of documents and emails.

It also details the history of Manafort and Gates, who worked for Russian-friendly factions in the Ukraine before joining the Trump campaign.
