CNN political reporter Gloria Borger called the Democratic National Committee lawsuit Friday against the Donald Trump campaign, the Russian government, and WikiLeaks a "100 percent stunt."
"They want to get in the act, obviously they want to keep the story moving," Borger said. "This is nothing new, everyone has been, every Democrat has been charging that the Trump campaign was in collusion with Wikileaks, et cetera."
In the lawsuit, the DNC alleged the Trump campaign, the Russian government, and WikiLeaks conspired to interfere in the 2016 presidential election to elevate Trump.
Borger thinks the DNC's intentions are less than pure.
"Honestly, it's just a way to raise money. That's what it is, that's what they're trying to do," she said.
Some Democrats seem less than enthused about the lawsuit.
Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill (Mo.), up for re-election in 2018, called it a "distraction."
