While President Donald Trump thought it was funny Democrats decided to sue him after his 2016 win, he said he would retaliate by suing for more of the Democratic Party’s information:
So funny, the Democrats have sued the Republicans for Winning. Now he R’s counter and force them to turn over a treasure trove of material, including Servers and Emails!

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.

“This can be good news,” Trump said before suggesting that Republicans could use the lawsuit to obtain more information about leading Democrats.
As Independent Journal Review previously noted, the Democratic Party filed a lawsuit alleging that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to hurt former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s electoral chances.CBS News/YouTube
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said Russia “found a willing and active partner in Donald Trump’s campaign” when the nation engaged in an “all-out assault on our democracy.”
It might be difficult for the lawsuit to proceed, as Russia, one of the sued entities, and other foreign nations are immune from most U.S. lawsuits. But Democrats argued that the country shouldn’t get sovereign immunity because Russia trespassed “on to the DNC’s private servers…in order to steal trade secrets and commit economic espionage.”
