As the SS Collusion slowly slides under the waves, a far left radical socialist democrat is doing his best to keep it afloat. Tom Perez and the DNC have filed a lawsuit against numerous parties, including Russia. A country. Really:
The multimillion-dollar lawsuit, first reported by The Washington Post, claims that the three parties worked together to prop up President Trump and kneecap his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
The lawsuit accuses Russian intelligence services of hacking into the DNC computers and with the help of WikiLeaks distributed the stolen information to disrupt the election. The DNC alleges that the Trump campaign was aware of the effort, but instead of reporting it, “gleefully welcomed Russia’s help.”
“Indeed, the Trump campaign solicited Russia’s illegal assistance, and maintained secret communications with individuals tied to the Russian government, including one of the intelligence agencies responsible for attacking the DNC,” the lawsuit says. “Through these communications, the Trump Campaign, Trump’s closest advisors, and Russian agents formed an agreement to promote Donald Trump’s candidacy through illegal means.”
I saw Perez on TV saying “We all know that Trump is Putin’s stooge.”
Initially it made me very angry. The Chairman of the DNC is spewing utter nonsense. It’s a dicey thing to do. There is no evidence whatsoever of anything Perez asserts. Perez is no stranger to prevarication. He has continued to lie about the DNC role in the funding of the Russian dossier. He lies about the prowess of DNC funding. He dropped the voter intimidation case against the Black Panthers.
In 2008, two men from the New Black Panther Party, one brandishing a nightstick, stood in front of a polling place in Philadelphia and became aggressive when a video tracker asked them what they were doing. The Department of Justice had a straightforward case against the two, according to former attorney J. Christian Adams, until Perez, then head of the agency’s Civil Rights Division, intervened. Adams resigned in protest after the charges were dropped. He called Perez the “most extreme cabinet nominee” he had ever seen.
He doesn’t think white people are protected by the Voting Rights Act.
He is an extreme radical:
After that, the issue of undelivered and uncounted military ballots, affecting overseas servicemen came up. Perez’s department did nothing to rectify the situation and declined to prosecute states or failing to deliver ballots. Only when they had been made aware that demographics were changing as to who the military voters were voting for, meaning Democrats, was any action at all taken.
Then there was the effort to halt voter fraud in Florida, where Perez’s DoJ filed a lawsuit to stop Florida from purging its voter rolls of 182,000 non-citizens. In June 2012, it was thrown out by a Clinton-appointed federal judge.
Perez filed race-baiting lawsuits against municipalities to force them to scrap written tests for police and firefighters to ensure affirmative action hiring. American Spectator‘s Quin Hillyer wrot Perez argued that black firefighter applicants who flunked 70% of their entrance exams should get a free pass to the New York firefighters academy. Ellison has nothing on Perez as an agent of racial division. A DOJ report
Perez also has led the Obama administration’s charge against voter ID laws, attempting to halt a South Carolina case that according to Hillier, got “ smacked down hard” by the U.S. District Court for the D.C. Circuit.
He also initiated additional junk lawsuits against peaceful anti-abortion protestors in Florida and against colorful Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
As for his own division of DOJ, a 250-page internal DOJ Inspector General’s report blasted it for its hothouse atmosphere of racial grievance mongering, “with several incidents in which deep ideological polarization fueled disputes and mistrust that harmed the functioning of the Voting Section.” Some leadership.
This is the work of a rabid activist who sees advancing the leftist agenda and the party that has adopted it as the goal. The party’s supremacy is his goal and the law is an obstacle. Sounds a heckuva lot like the Obama administration, which he exerted considerable influence over. Will the voters go for same-old, same-old? The current state of the Democratic Party seems to think there’s a need for more of it.
Now Perez is the face of the DNC. He is filing this lawsuit at an interesting time. George Papadopoulos is denying any collusion, James Comey is at odds with both Andrew McCabe and Loretta Lynch. McCabe is looking at prosecution. It seems Comey leaked classified information. There are rumblings about Perez’s action within the democrat party:
California Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer she the lawsuit is “ill conceived” and that she “was not supportive of it.”
Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, a member in a tough reelection campaign, was reported to have distanced herself from the lawsuit as well. According to a reporter at The St. Louis Dispatch, McCaskill called it a “silly distraction.”
Democratic political consultant best known for being President Barack Obama’s chief campaign strategist David Axelrod agreed tweeting that the suit is a “sideshow.”
Newton’s Third Law says that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Were this ever to come close to a court room, the discovery phase of this action would be most illuminating- especially the part where the plaintiffs seek the servers the DNC would not let the FBI examine.
This is so dumb that not even Chuck Todd is taking it seriously.
Tom Perez is a lunatic radical liberal. He is panicking as the air goes out of the collusion balloon and is desperately flitting around trying to find something with which to distract his base from the fact that it was the DNC and the Hillary campaign who set Trump up with this phony Russian nonsense.
The IG report is going to hurt Perez. A lot.
So let’s let Perez continue this truly quixotic quest. He’s draining energy and cash from the DNC and its coffers.
