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.

Attorney General Bill Barr Folds to the Mob, Claims There is Systemic Racism in Law Enforcement

Barr said that law enforcement being unfair to blacks is a “widespread phenomenon.”

Attorney General Bill Barr has bent his knee to Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists, defending the lie of systemic racism during an interview with ABC News.

“I do think it is a widespread phenomenon that African American males, in particular, are treated with extra suspicion and maybe not given the benefit of the doubt,” Barr said to ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas during an exclusive interview.

“I think it is wrong if people are not respected appropriately and given their due,” he added, “and I think it’s something we have to address.”

Barr said that he is cheering on widespread reform in the wake of serial felon drug addict George Floyd’s death during a police encounter.

“Before the George Floyd incident I thought we were in a good place,” he said. “I think that this episode in Minneapolis showed that we still have some work to do in addressing the distrust that exists in the African American community toward law enforcement.”

Barr noted that he hopes Floyd’s death will serve as “a catalyst for the kinds of changes that are needed.”

Although Barr is paying lip service to BLM and throwing law enforcement under the bus, he has not yet joined the bandwagon to defund the police. He instead wants cops to be hamstrung and substituted with social workers in certain situations to deal with suspected criminals.

“We have to think about more investment in the police,” Barr said. “So one of the things we’ve been talking about is trying to direct some of the [Health and Human Services] money and grant programs and sync it up with law enforcement spending so we can enable the departments to have co-responders. That is, social workers and mental health experts who can go on certain kinds of calls to help.”

He cited a recent federal study conducted by the Justice Department’s civil rights division throwing law enforcement under the bus.

“We found, in that case, that there was a drug unit in the Springfield (Mass.) police department that was engaged in a pattern and practice of using excessive force,” Barr said.

Barr offered a very modest criticism of BLM during the interview for refusing to focus on the thousands of black lives that are taken by other black people.

“I also think [the phrase] is being used now – it is distorting the debate to some extent, because it is used really to refer almost exclusively to black lives that are lost to police misconduct,” he said. “Then you compare it to 8,000 homicides in the African American community, those are black lives that matter, too. And those are lives that are protected by the police.”

Barr’s response shows why Fox News host Tucker Carlson is saying that Republicans have failed abysmally in their response to a nationwide terror campaign from the Left. The weak response from the administration may cost Trump re-election in November.
