The Democratic Party filed a lawsuit Friday alleging that Russia, WikiLeaks and top officials from Donald Trump´s campaign conspired to tilt the 2016 USA presidential election in the Republican´s favor.
The Democratic Party filed a lawsuit Friday in Manhattan that alleges President Donald Trump's campaign worked with the Russians and WikiLeaks, a website that released thousands of hacked emails from people close to Clinton.
In a statement forwarded by Stone, Rob Buschel, Stone's lawyer, said he had not yet been served with the DNC suit and described it as a "regurgitation" of a complaint filed a year ago by Democrats alleging their privacy was invaded during the campaign.
The hacking of the DNC has always been a sore spot for Democrats across the board since Clinton's stunning loss in November 2016.
The CFAA is the US' primary law against cybercrime and is often used to prosecute hackers for alleged "unauthorised access" of "protected computers". "This can be good news in that we will now counter for the DNC Server that they refused to give to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Debbie Wasserman Schultz Servers and Documents held by the Pakistani mystery man and Clinton Emails", he said.
"But I think this sidebar lawsuit is not in the interest of the American people".
Jennings said the CFAA is a "core part" of his practice as a lawyer and this omission "jumped out" at him.

However, the suit skips defining DNC computers as such, jumping straight to the definition of "protected computers", which include those used by the USA government or financial institutions.
The 66-page lawsuit uses strong language, including a heading of "Trump - and Russia - Won" to describe Trump's victory in the 2016 presidential elections, to allege cooperation between the plaintiffs.

Most of the accusations appeared to be based on news reports and publicly available legal documents and offered little new information about alleged collusion with Moscow.
The Trump team's connections to foreign actors have been well documented in the press and through the special counsel investigation. But Mueller has directly accused only former Trump campaign foreign policy aide George Papadopoulos of trying to work with Russian operatives to support the Trump campaign.
Still, it is possible the lawsuit might reveal new details. "Als, o do I get to take discovery since I'm named?" And we will know soon enough.
Perez said the party had not worked on the lawsuit with Democratic leaders on the intelligence committees in the House and Senate, who are investigating contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation through legislative investigations.
