DNC junk lawsuit against Trump campaign, Wikileaks and Russia a ‘tin foil hat conspiracy theory’

April 20, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to a new lawsuit filed by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) alleging an international conspiracy between the 2016 Trump campaign, Wikileaks and Russia to “interfere” with the 2016 elections:

“The DNC has finally gone over the edge, alleging in a federal court a tin foil hat conspiracy theory that the Trump campaign, Wikileaks and Russia in 2016 worked together behind the scenes to hack the DNC and put the emails on Wikileaks. The DNC must not have a lot of confidence that such a case will ever be brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and so DNC Chairman Tom Perez is pursuing this as a civil matter. It’s a crackpot move, politically designed for their most radical supporters, to deflect attention from the fact, verified by the House Intelligence Committee, that there was no such collusion. They’re grasping. It reeks of desperation.

“The President should immediately demand the DNC servers be turned over to his legal team’s own forensic analysis team in order to determine the origins any hack. Given that the DNC failed to provide this basic piece of evidence to the FBI in the past, it will provide the people of the United States the first independent look at what really happened with their servers.”
