Gingrich on DNC's Trump-Russia-WikiLeaks Lawsuit: Let FBI Look at Hacked Servers
The Democratic National Committee's (DNC) filed a multimillion-dollar federal lawsuit against Trump campaign officials, the Russian government and WikiLeaks, alleging a widespread conspiracy to tilt the 2016 election in Donald Trump's favor.
The suit claims that Trump campaign officials worked in tandem with the Russian government and its military spy agency to bring down Hillary Clinton by hacking into the computer networks of the DNC and spreading stolen material.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich responded by calling on the DNC to allow the FBI to look at the servers they claim were hacked.
"The first test for the DNC should be, open up the servers and allow the FBI to look at them," Gingrich said on "Outnumbered Overtime."
He suggested the Democratic Party may be reluctant to do so because they might have done things that they don't want the public to know about.
He noted that former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile had "devastating" revelations in her recent book about the degree to which the DNC had totally -- and inappropriately -- become an extension of the Hillary Clinton campaign.
"I think someday, somebody will write a book entitled 'Mess,' and it will cover from the beginning of the Clinton case up through wherever we're eventually going to end up. And that's what it is, it's a mess."
