BREAKING: Federal Judge Dismisses DNC Lawsuit Against Trump Campaign, Russia and WikiLeaks with Prejudice

Also, the sanctions motion against Trump’s campaign was denied.

When the Democratic National Committee (DNC) announced that they had filed a lawsuit against the Trump campaign, Wikileaks and the Russian Federation alleging that those entities conspired to conduct a cyberattack against them before the 2016 election, many liberal observers thought it would uncover the smoking gun showing Donald Trump’s criminal and illicit behavior.

But the resistance was wrong yet again. Earlier today, a federal judge dismissed the suit with prejudice and denied a sanctions motion against the Trump campaign.

District Judge John Koeltl, who was appointed to the bench by former President Bill Clinton, explained that Russia was the actor behind the malign activity against the DNC, and they are exempted from liability under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA).

Furthermore, Koeltl explained that WikiLeaks and the Trump campaign have First Amendment protections that prevent them from being held liable for sharing the materials stolen from the DNC by Russia.

“If WikiLeaks could be held liable for publishing documents concerning the DNC’s political financial and voter-engagement strategies simply because the DNC labels them ‘secret’ and trade secrets, then so could any newspaper or other media outlet,” Koeltl wrote in his decision, which can be read in full here.

The lawsuit, filed by the DNC in the Southern District of New York back in April of 2018, levied a dozen charges toward individuals they accused of conspiring with Russia and WikiLeaks including Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos, Roger Stone, Jared Kushner, Rick Gates, and Donald Trump Jr.

“The conspiracy constituted an act of previously unimaginable treachery: the campaign of the presidential nominee of a major party in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the presidency,” the complaint stated.

But like the fantasy of FBI spook Robert Mueller undoing the results of the 2016 presidential election with his special counsel investigation, the conspiracy theory fabricated by the DNC has gone up in smoke.

Biden’s White House Considering Banning Conservative Media from Press Briefings

Briefings could be restricted to mainstream media?

Published

on

President Joe Biden’s press team may move to restrict the briefings held at the White House to liberal mainstream media outlets, if language from the new President’s deputy press secretary if more than just talk.

Organizations or individuals who traffic in conspiracy theories, propaganda and lies to spread disinformation will not be tolerated,” TJ Ducklo, Biden’s deputy press secretary, said in a statement to Politico, “and we’ll work with the WHCA to decide how to handle those instances moving forward.

Given liberal media figures’ extremely wide-ranging definition of “disinformation,” it appears possible to likely that any journalist or reporter who is critical of Biden policies “will not be tolerated” at the White House.

President Trump had accredited journalists from outlets such as Breitbart and One America News Network during his time in office, and Ducklo’s language suggests the press credentials of such organizations may be revoked. Biden himself has chafed over questions regarding his son’s corrupt foreign business dealings, calling Fox News’ Peter Doocy a “one horse pony” for daring to ask about an ongoing Department of Justice investigation into Hunter Biden.

The first press briefing of the Biden administration was attended by fourteen mainstream media employees, in a limited-capacity briefing spurred by the coronavirus pandemic. Room service journalists questioned White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about the color scheme of Air Force One and Biden’s mood on Inauguration Day.

Former Trump administration Press Secretary Sean Spicer described the ‘easy mode’ briefing as “an embarrassment.” Spicer is currently seeking press credentials to attend White House briefings, along with Fox host Eric Bolling.

Expect the remaining “journalists” present for White House press briefings to ask vital questions about dogs, chocolate chip ice cream, and softball slam dunks for the Biden administration.
