Fiery 'You Know Nothing!': Bongino Battles Former Clinton Aide Over DNC Lawsuit
Dan Bongino got into a heated argument with former Hillary Clinton senior adviser Philippe Reines Saturday over the Democratic National Committee's (DNC) lawsuit alleging a widespread conspiracy to tilt the 2016 election in Donald Trump's favor.
The suit against Trump campaign officials, the Russian government and WikiLeaks claims that Trump campaign officials worked in tandem with the Russians and its military spy agency to bring down Hillary Clinton by hacking into the computer networks of the DNC and spreading stolen material.
When Bongino said that the Russians tried to influence the election, through Clinton, Reines replied, "[Clinton is] is gone now, so what are we doing in 2018?"
Bongino then pressed Reines further, asking him why the DNC won't turn servers over to the FBI that it alleged to be hacked by Russians.
"If you're so sure the Russians hacked, why won't you turn them over?" he asked.
So funny, the Democrats have sued the Republicans for Winning. Now he R’s counter and force them to turn over a treasure trove of material, including Servers and Emails!

Reines answered, "I don't know, ask [former DNC chair] Debbie Wasserman Schultz."
President Trump named Schultz in a tweet on Friday criticizing the lawsuit.
Just heard the Campaign was sued by the Obstructionist Democrats. This can be good news in that we will now counter for the DNC Server that they refused to give to the FBI, the Debbie Wasserman Schultz Servers and Documents held by the Pakistani mystery man and Clinton Emails.

"You can't answer the question, you fraud!" Bongino said to Reines. "You know nothing!"
Reines called the lawsuit one of "last resort," when asked why it took the DNC over a year to file it.
