The Democratic National Committee today filed a lawsuit against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and help the campaign of Donald Trump, The Washington Post reports. The case claims that a Russian hacking campaign amounted to illegal conspiracy to interfere in the election. The lawsuit appears to be modeled after a similar legal action from 1972, when the DNC filed suit against President Richard Nixon’s re-election committee over the Watergate scandal.
