A judge just tossed the suit claiming the Trump campaign and Roger Stone conspired with Russia and Wikileaks to expose hacked DNC emails…The claim by the judge is that the evidence of guilt was “too flimsy”. The Bill Clinton-appointed judge then left the door open for the Democrats to refile which they’ve already said they will do. This is another example of how the Democrats just cannot accept defeat. They continue to grasp at straws to try and destroy President Trump or anyone surrounding him
U.S. District Court Judge Ellen Huvelle said that the suit’s efforts to tie the Trump campaign to the nation’s capital were too flimsy for the case to proceed in a D.C. court.
“The Trump Campaign’s efforts to elect President Trump in D.C. are not suit-related contacts for those efforts did not involve acts taken in furtherance of the conspiracies to disseminate emails that harmed plaintiffs,” wrote Huvelle, an appointee of President Bill Clinton. “Campaign meetings, canvassing voters, and other regular business activities of a political campaign do not constitute activities related to the conspiracies alleged in the complaint.”
Stone, who worked both as a formal and informal adviser to the Trump campaign, exchanged digital messages during the election with WikiLeaks and Guccifer 2.0, an online persona that U.S. officials have said was a Russian front for disseminating the stolen DNC files. Various meetings between Trump aides and Kremlin-linked individuals have also come out since the election.
The DNC was not a party to the suit that two donors and the former staffer filed last July. However, in April of this year, the DNC brought its own lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan, accusing the Russian government, the Trump campaign, Trump’s son Donald Jr., Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and various other figures of roles in events related to the hacking. That case is still in its early stages.
The Trump resistance group Protect Democracy, which filed the suit dismissed Tuesday, suggested it might refile the case elsewhere.
And once again the left just can’t accept defeat…
