via CNBC – Dan Mangan. – The Democratic Party on Friday sued President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the Russian government and the Wikileaks group, claiming a broad illegal conspiracy to help Trump win the 2016 election.
The multi-million-dollar lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court says that “In the Trump campaign, Russia found a willing and active partner in this effort” to mount “a brazen attack on American Democracy,” which included Russian infiltration of the Democratic Party computer network.
The Trump campaign, according to the lawsuit, “gleefully welcomed Russia’s help.”
The suit says that “preexisting relationships with Russia and Russian oligarchs” with Trump and Trump associates “provided fertile ground for [the] Russia-Trump conspiracy.”
The common purpose of the scheme, according to the Democratic National Committee, was to “bolster Trump and denigrate the Democratic Party nominee,” Hillary Clinton, while boosting the candidacy of Trump, “whose policies would benefit the Kremlin.”

Hes responds, surprisingly frankly…
“Oh probably… but it was for the good of the system…”
To which Ingraham follows up…
“We don’t do that now though? We don’t mess around in other people’s elections?”
Prompting this extraordinary sentence from a former CIA chief…
“Well…hhhmmm, numm numm numm numm… only for a very good cause…in the interests of democracy”
So just to clarify – yes, the CIA chief admitted that Democracy-spreading ‘Murica meddled in the Democratic elections of other nations “in the interests of democracy.”
In case you wondered which ones he was referring to, here’s a brief selection since 1948…
