The multimillion-dollar lawsuit filed by the Democratic National Committee alleges a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the presidential campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump.
President Trump raised concerns about the judgment of his national security adviser Michael Flynn weeks before forcing him to resign last year, according to memos kept by former FBI director James B. Comey. The memos also say that Trump repeatedly denied allegations that he had consorted with prostitutes in Moscow in 2013 and prodded Comey to help disprove them.
The case will now be considered by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and then by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Civil rights prosecutors previously advocated for charges in the case but met resistance from colleagues in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York.
