United to Protect Democracy (UPD) filed a lawsuit Wednesday against President Trump’s campaign.
According to the filing, UPD is alleging the Trump campaign worked with the Russian government and WikiLeaks to release the hacked emails and information of three Democrats. In making the emails public, UPD claims the Trump team violated the three Democrats’ privacy.
The documents filed by UPD to the district court for the District of Columbia, alleges that the Trump Campaign “entered into an agreement with other parties, including agents of Russia and WikiLeaks, to have information stolen from the DNC publicly disseminated in a strategic way that would benefit the campaign to elect Mr. Trump as President.”
It continues by claiming, “No American should fear that the consequence of participating in our democracy is that their identity would be stolen or their personal, private information plastered on the Internet for all to see.”
The three plaintiffs are DNC employee Scott Comer, and Democratic Party donors, Eric Schoenberg and Roy Cockrum. In the case of Comer, the lawsuit claims his emails revealed to his grandparents that he is gay, thus, making for trouble and discomfort within his family.
