It didn’t take a genius to predict President Trump’s response to the announcement by Democratic National Committee Chairmen Tom Perez yesterday.
Perez, in what was either a case sophomoric stupidity, or an intra-party powerplay released a written statement:
“During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found a willing and active partner in Donald Trump’s campaign.
“This constituted an act of unprecedented treachery: 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.”
If Tom really believes that then he’s suing the wrong campaign.
Or, perhaps Perez is using the lawsuit as a way to finally cleanse the party that he is responsible for of all the Obama-ites and Clintonoids that are dragging it down.
If that’s the case then he’s got President Trump to do his dirty work.
Don Jr. got the ball rolling when he suggested that discovery would work in his favor:
How’s the saying go?
If for 2 years you don’t succeed pedaling your garbage try try again? 😂😂😂
Also do I get to take discovery since I’m named? https://t.co/BQ8mmgtTmB

Yesterday, after Perez’s announcement, we wrote that “It’s a pretty fair bet that Trump’s cyber forensic team are salivating at getting their hands on the “hacked” DNC server and Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s laptop and records on the Awan brothers.
And, Trump did exactly as we predicted last evening when he posted this to Twitter:
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.

Perez had to have known President Trump, known as an incredible counter-puncher, would react in this manner. He also knows that the sins of the Obama-Clinton loyalists couldn’t be kept secret much longer.
Is this Perez’s attempt to solidify his control of the Democratic Party and drag it even farther towards socialism, this time by running openly socialist candidates?
At times like this I’m reminded of the words of the Democrat standard-bearer, Franklin D. Roosevelt:
“In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.”
