On Friday, CNN’s Chief Political Analyst mocked the multi-million dollar lawsuit filed by the Democratic National Committee against the Russian government, Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and WikiLeaks, calling it a complete stunt.
The DNC’s lawsuit, filed in federal court in the Southern District of New York, claims members of the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government to promote Trump and damage Clinton and seeks to collect financial damages from the alleged hacking of the DNC’s servers — which the FBI still has not seen.
“How much of this do you think is just a stunt versus a pretty smart ploy for the court of public opinion?” Brooke Baldwin asked political analyst Gloria Borger.
“A 100 percent stunt, 100 percent,” Borger responded. “They want to get in the act, obviously. They want to keep the story moving. This is nothing new.”
“Everyone has been — every Democrat, political Democrat has been charging that the Trump campaign was in collusion with WikiLeaks, etc.,” Borger continued. “We know that the DNC was hacked, we’ve been talking about this since the campaign. And honestly, it’s just — it’s just a way to raise money.”
