[Ed. – Year of disappointments for Dems continues.]
Federal Judge John G. Koeltl for the U.S. District of New York on Tuesday dismissed a lawsuit by the DNC against the 2016 Trump campaign, Donald Trump, Wikileaks, the Russian government, and others associated with so-called Russian election interference.
The DNC first filed this lawsuit a little more than a year ago and all of the defendants in the case claimed the First Amendment protects the dissemination of stolen materials.
Another Democrat fail and more winning for Trump.
Judge Koeltl, a Bill Clinton appointee wrote in his Tuesday ruling that Trump and the members of his campaign have First Amendment rights and are therefore shielded from the allegations.
The judge also wrote in his 81-page opinion that Russia could not be sued in US courts for election interference and said the DNC’s argument was “entirely divorced” from the facts.
