(National Sentinel)Â The Pakistan Connection: As you likely know, the Democratic National Committee filed what can only be called aÂ desperation and harassment lawsuitÂ in federal court in Manhattan on Friday against the Trump campaign organization, WikiLeaks, and (wait for it) Russia, over the bogus allegation that all of them â€œcolludedâ€ to â€œsteal the electionâ€ from Hillary Clinton.
Without question, the lawsuit has no merit because it has no basis in reality. The reason why the DNC filed it was to keep alive the â€œcollusionâ€ story through the 2018 midterms so the partyâ€™s sycophantic supporters who continue to believe the lie will remain jazzed enough to vote.
But one person who you wouldnâ€™t expect to be happy about the suit is ecstatic â€” and he just happens to be the current president of the United States.
Donald J. Trump tweeted out his response to the suit Friday night: â€œJust 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.â€

Some of this needs unpacking, however, because Trump is referencing some things that the American Pravda media has been virtually silent about â€” the massive espionage scandal involving a family of Pakistani information technology specialists, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and a slew of other Democrats.
The one news source that has been tracking this scandal from the beginning isÂ The Daily Caller, and it basically comes down to this, as summarized byÂ Zero Hedge:
Imran Awan, his wife Hina Alvi and several other associates ran IT operations for at leastÂ 60 Congressional DemocratsÂ over the past decade, along with the House Democratic Caucus â€“ giving them access to emails and computer data from aroundÂ 800 lawmakers and staffers â€“Â including the highly classified materials reviewed by the House Intelligence Committee.Â
At one point a House Democratic Caucus server was stolen, but not before Iwan funneled information onto it for who knows how long. And the server just happened to disappear shortly after the House Inspector General concluded that the server was likely being used for nefarious purposes. As The DC noted, the Awans logged onto the server 27 times a day, on average â€” far more than any other server they managed.
Then on Friday, The DC reported that Awanâ€™s father, Rehman Malik, transferred a USB drive to Rehman Malik, the former head of a Pakistani intelligence agency (Malik denies the allegation).Â
Meanwhile, itâ€™s worth noting that at the time the DNC claimed its servers were hacked by â€œRussiaâ€ â€” during the 2016 election cycle â€” the party refused cyber-forensic assistance from the FBI, which offered to help the DNC find out who actually hacked the server (if anyone â€”Â this is where the late DNC IT worker Seth Rich comes in). The DNC instead had a private forensic firm, Crowdstrike, look at its servers. Crowdstrike claimed it was the Russians butÂ the firmâ€™s findings have been disputed.
So, why is Trump so pleased by the DNC lawsuit? Because heâ€™s most anxious for the discovery phase. In discovery, itâ€™s possible that lawyers and investigators for the Trump campaign and other affected parties will be able to do something the FBI hasnâ€™t been able to or shown interest in doing thus far: Accessing the DNCâ€™s servers and other electronic information Democrats, Wasserman-Schultz (who tried to stymie the investigationÂ into the Awans and the missing server) and other players in this scandal have.
By filing the suit, the DNC may have opened the door for Trump to expose another major Obama-era Democratic scandalÂ andanother aspect to the Russian collusion hoax.Â
