9:02 pm
russians tonight a lawsuit to that list the democratic national committee is suing president donald trump's campaign leaders the russian government and we can leaks the democrats contend that all three conspired to help try to win the twenty sixteen presidential election in what the party calls unprecedented treachery and the brazen attack on american democracy trump has repeatedly denied any collusion between his campaign and russia but this lawsuit comes as trump's legal woes are melting his personal attorney michael cohen is now under criminal investigation. or i want to take this story now to washington our correspondent claire richards is standing by good evening to you clear well what a day why has the d.n.c. decided to do this now. high brand that's why this is happening as an aside to the investigation being carried out by robert
9:03 pm
muller into whether there was collusion between the trunk campaign and russia and slaying the twenty sixteen election the democrats now are hoping that this lawsuit could give them the opportunity to see more facts come forward through a separate legal channel aside from the miller probe that this could open a new avenue for information to come out so it's a new a legal assault on trump's team of course has called the miller investigation a witch hunt and they're hoping to see some new facts come forward in this process this is a wall super you sued basically the u.s. president and you allege a conspiracy i mean has this been done before is there any precedent. i think it's fair to say that we have not seen the d.n.c. do anything like this we of course saw the chair tom per say in a statement that this constituted an act of unprecedented treachery he said the campaign of a nominee for president of the united states in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the presidency so that's
