Trump Campaign Blasts DNC Lawsuit
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A lawyer for U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign on Thursday rejected as “wild speculation” allegations by three Americans that it conspired with Russians to disseminate their private information from hacked emails to deter them from supporting Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
District Court for the District of Columbia was the first time Trump’s campaign had defended itself in open court against allegations it coordinated with Russians, the subject of investigation by U.S. The most prominent of the lawsuits was filed earlier this year by the Democratic National Committee (DNC), whose emails were hacked.
It also named Russia and Wikileaks as defendants.
