Help WikiLeaks Fight the DNC

In April 2018, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against WikiLeaks simply for publishing its emails. This lawsuit is the biggest attack on freedom of speech and constitutional rights in decades.

The DNC does not allege WikiLeaks participated in hacking of any kind. It is suing WikiLeaks for providing accurate, newsworthy information to the public.

The emails published by WikiLeaks reveal that the Clinton campaign worked with the DNC to rig the primary election and to engage in elaborate money laundering schemes.

Astonishingly, the DNC claims that the emails of its political operatives are "trade secrets" –  as if the DNC's rigging efforts were the equivalent to the secret formula for Coca-Cola. With this suit, the DNC has become a press freedom predator, attempting to abuse trade secret law to suppress public understanding.

Senior Democrats from Donna Brazile to Senator Elizabeth Warren agree that the primary was 'rigged' by the DNC. The top five officers of the DNC, including its president Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, resigned over the issue.

The DNC might argue that it can sue the Trump campaign, or even the alleged leakers. What it cannot be permitted to do is sue the publisher who revealed its improper conduct.

James Goodale, the First Amendment lawyer who defended the New York Times for publishing the Pentagon Papers, said the DNC 'paid zero attention to the First Amendment ramifications of their suit '. 

The Committee to Project Journalists warned , 'By suing WikiLeaks, DNC could endanger principles of press freedom'.

The Democratic National Committee has billionaire backers to be able to fight the lawsuit in court for years. WikiLeaks, in contrast, is an award winning small publisher entirely funded by its readers.     

This is a David and Goliath struggle. But as history shows, you should never bet against WikiLeaks. In the twelve years since it was founded it has never lost a court case and never retracted a publication.

Help WikiLeaks stand up to the DNC and protect your fundamental rights.
