The Democratic National Committee (DNC) filed a lawsuit in the federal district court in Manhattan Friday against Russia, WikiLeaks and the Trump campaign alleging that the three entities conspired to disrupt the 2016 presidential campaign.
The suit alleges that Trump campaign associates conspired with the Russian government and hacked the Democratic Party’s computer networks, circulating stolen material found there, according to the Washington Post.
The DNC is seeking millions of dollars in compensation for the alleged damage suffered from the hacks.
