The Democratic Party filed a lawsuit on Friday alleging that Russia, WikiLeaks and top officials from Donald Trump's campaign conspired to tilt the 2016 USA presidential election in the Republican's favour.
Nick Akerman, a former Watergate prosecutor who now specializes in computer fraud cases, said he thought the Democrat's suit had merit and, despite predictions from Trump-allied lawyers, was unlikely to go away anytime soon.

Trump has said repeatedly there was no collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation.
Special counsel Robert Mueller has filed charges against multiple former Trump campaign aides stemming from his federal Russian Federation probe.
It also says a close Trump advisor, Roger Stone, appeared to have "advance knowledge" of plans by the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks to disseminate some of the stolen information - as part of what the suit alleges was a wide-ranging illegal conspiracy to influence the election. That litigation is still in progress.

Perez said the party had not worked on the lawsuit with Democratic leaders on the intelligence committees in the House and Senate, who are investigating contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation through legislative investigations.
Instead, it targets various Trump aides who, during the campaign, met with people believed to be affiliated with Russian Federation.
The release of the emails, which included messages disparaging Bernie Sanders, threw the Democratic Party into turmoil at a moment when the party was supposed to be coming together in support of a nominee, and intensified infighting between supporters of Clinton and Sanders.
According to the Post, foreign countries are immune to most lawsuits filed in the U.S.
The DNC is dealing with significant debt after the 2016 election, and lags behind the Republican National Committee in fundraising. And certain claims in the lawsuit, he said, face statutory expiration dates. "And I'm not very supportive of it".
Jaitley: Congress taking revenge for unfavourable ruling in Loya case
Mr Jaitley said, charges leveled by the opposition are those issues which have been settled by judicial orders or by precedent. The Congress , however, downplayed it saying the party did not want to involve its senior leaders in the issue.
"I'm not interested in a political tit-for-tat". The hack and subsequent release of the emails hit the party just before it formally nominated Clinton, and the emails remained a major issue through Election Day.
WikiLeaks got all of this underway late on Friday, and there has been no response from the DNC so far.
Democrats have similarly been critical of President Barack Obama for not doing enough in 2016 to fight back against Russian Federation.
