Despite the fact that it has been over a year since Donald Trump was inaugurated into office and won the 2016 presidential election the Democratic National Committee and Democrats cannot get over Hillary Clinton’s loss. They continue to blame everyone else for their problems and their recent actions show just that.
This past Friday the Democratic National Committee filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against campaign officials associated with President Trump, as well as WikiLeaks and the Russian government. The federal court case is based on an allegation of a conspiracy during the 2016 presidential election to help Donald Trump win the election.
In the suit, the party references the alleged actions of these defendants as an “all out assault on our democracy.” The civil suit will be heard in a federal district court in Manhattan, New York City, New York. While this lawsuit is new it is related to other investigations regarding the 2016 election. The Trump-Russia investigation headed by Robert Mueller is investigating Russian connections to the 2016 presidential election outcome as well.
The suit clearly reads,
“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.”
Later in the lawsuit, it is alleged that campaign officials for President Trump deliberately worked side by side with members of the Russian government as well as their spy agency in order to work against Hillary Clinton and get President Trump elected. Furthermore, their argument is based on the idea that these individuals hacked into computer networks at the Democratic National Convention and stole materials to use to their advantage.
This coming from the party that rigged its own primary against Bernie Sanders.
American News Daily reported,
The Democratic National Committee had a rough 2017, plagued by leadership troubles, internal squabbling, and unflattering reports. To top it off, the party ended the year “d**d broke,” says The Intercept’s Ryan Grim.
The Democratic Party is carrying more than $6 million in debt, according to year-end filings — and has just $6.5 million in the bank. Do the math, and the party is working with just over $400,000 overall. Meanwhile, the Republicans are swimming in pools of money. The Republican National Committee had raised $132 million by the end of 2017 — about twice as much as the DNC — and entered 2018 with almost $40 million to spare, with not a penny of debt.
This whole WikiLeaks thing is just hilarious. WikiLeaks wasn’t some made up conspiracy theory. It was actual emails from John Podesta. It revealed actual bad things that Democrats were up to behind the scenes. Democrats are mad that the American people saw the shady things they were doing. There’s no proof that Trump was behind that release. In fact, you can make an argument (and some have) that the leak was an inside job. This notion that Russia changed the election is absolute nonsense.
This move is good for Republicans. The longer the Democrats are hung up on 2016 the longer the American people won’t take them seriously.”
However, what is not being discussed is how the Democratic National Convention is hemorraging money. Which in all likelihood could have something to do with why they are bringing this lawsuit about, to try and make up for the money they negligently lost. The party is carrying over $6 million in debt and only has $6.5 million in the bank. In reality, this means they are only carrying $400,000 in actual assets.
Whereas Republicans have the exact opposite problem, they are swimming in money. The Republican National Committee has raised a total of $132 million in 2017, which is over twice the amount the Democratic National Committee raised. In 2018 they came into the new year with $40 million to spare, no debt what so ever.
And thus ends the DNC's year of pain.

The Week reported,
“The DNC’s rebuttal, The Washington Post reports, is that they raised more money in 2017 than they have in previous non-election years and were operating at something of a disadvantage given the “rebuilding job” undertaken by first-year chairman Tom Perez. While the DNC claims it is not borrowing money to pay the bills, Grim notes that the party would be operating at a financial loss if not for its borrowing.
If there is any cause for Democratic optimism, it’s that individual Democratic candidates seem to be doing well for themselves even as the national party apparatus struggles. NBC News reported Thursday that nearly 50 non-incumbent Democrats running for Congress in the 2018 midterm elections outraised their Republican opponents in the last quarter of 2017.”
While it has already been established that Russian officials did interfere with the election, nobody has been able to prove the administration had anything to do with it. Neither Robert Mueller or private attorneys have been able to establish a connection between the Russian government and President Trump himself. It is time the Democratic National Committee focus more on revamping their message and mission to try and win elections then on no win cases that they are only undertaking in an attempt to add more cash to their empty pot.
