According to the lawsuit, Russia's cyberattack began just weeks after Mr Trump announced his candidacy in June 2015 and within months European intelligence agencies were reporting suspicious communication between Trump associates and Russian operatives.

The lawsuit also names the members of the Trump campaign who have been charged by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

The lawsuit was filed the day after Bloomberg reported that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein - the official who gave the orders for special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Trump's ties to Russian Federation - told Trump last week that the president is not part of Mueller's investigator or the probe into Trump's longtime attorney, Michael Cohen.

"The conspiracy constituted an act of previously unimaginable treachery: the campaign of the presidential nominee of a major party in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the presidency, "the DNC writes in the suit".

The campaign called the suit a "frivolous", "partisan", and meritless action that represents a "last-ditch effort" by a "nearly-bankrupt Democratic Party" still trying to counter the will of the American public. This suit comes from the alleged harm done to the DNC during the 2016 presidential campaigns and election.

Trump, however, has repeatedly insisted that there was no collusion between his campaign and the Russians, and has denounced the special counsel investigation as a "witch hunt".

DNC officials say they believe their lawsuit could recoup substantial monetary damages. We know that the DNC was hacked, we've been talking about this since the campaign.

Foreign governments are generally immune from US prosecution, but the DNC claims this suit falls into one of the exemptions to that law, since the hack amounted to the Russian government trespassing on the committee's private property.

Wasserman Schultz resigned as DNC chair in 2016 after Wikileaks published documents revealing that the DNC favored Hillary Clinton's campaign over Bernie Sanders'.

. It is going to court and it is going to sue because it lost what should have been the "unlosable" presidential election. In 1972, the DNC filed suit against President Richard Nixon's re-election committee seeking $1 million in damages for the break-in at Democratic headquarters in the Watergate building.
