Pavlich Slams DNC's Trump-Russia Lawsuit: 'They're Desperate'
Katie Pavlich called the Democratic National Committee's federal lawsuit against President Donald Trump's campaign officials "desperate," and said that the DNC filed it as a "complete political ploy."
The multimillion-dollar suit alleges a widespread conspiracy by campaign officials, the Russian government and WikiLeaks to tilt the 2016 election in Trump's favor.
It 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.
"The DNC is desperate. They're millions of dollars in the red, they are in debt," Pavlich, a Fox News contributor, said. "I'm wondering how they're going to pay for this lawsuit."
Pavlich added that the DNC isn't focused on elections and getting its candidates into office, but rather keeping the "Russia narrative" alive.
"It's a complete political ploy," she said.
In an op-ed for the New York Post, Michael Goodwin wrote that suit "reeks of desperation."
"The trashy suit is their way of trying to keep impeachment and Russia, Russia, Russia alive for the midterms in case Mueller’s probe comes up empty," Goodwin wrote.
Mary Anne Marsh, former senior adviser to John Kerry, said that the DNC's lawsuit is modeled on the one that was brought against Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal.
"Everyone can mock this all they want, but this is about discovery. This is about facts. This is about the court of law," she said.
