Oh look — it seems that Hillary’s homebrew server isn’t necessarily going to go away. In fact, Donald Trump may have a plan for it.
According to Breitbart, after the president heard the Democrat Party was considering suing him for collaborating with Russia during the 2016 election (and good luck with that one), he decided to hit back with a threat of his own involving Clinton’s server.
Do you think Hillary Clinton should be charged for her server scandal?

As CNBC reported, the lawsuit from the Democrats basically alleges that the Trump campaign conspired with the Russians and WikiLeaks to discredit Hillary Clinton by releasing her emails.
So, Trump responded as Trump doth respond: by threatening to make Hillary Clinton an issue again.
“Just heard the Campaign was sued by the Obstructionist Democrats,” Trump tweeted Friday.
“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.”

Trump was likely referring to Imran Awan, a former IT specialist employed by the Democrats who happened to be running a criminal sideline involving double billing for tech products (allegedly, cough cough).
The issue at hand is that Awan’s case has thus far been treated relatively lightly even though he was an IT specialist for top DNC officials — in particular, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, another Clinton favorite — and has mostly been kept out of the spotlight.
Until now, obviously.
The one thing about Trump’s Twitter account is that it’s most useful when it’s being used to bring attention to things that wouldn’t ordinarily get attention. And, in this case, it worked.
The Democrats’ lawsuit against Trump is inane. There’s absolutely no evidence for this preposterous action, which doesn’t even rise to the level of frivolous.
However, they poked the bear, and now he’s angry. While we don’t anticipate any more dramatic arrests out at Dulles, we can imagine that maybe the Democrats might think twice and look at the log in their own eye before launching legal actions like this again.
Now, if Trump is to be believed, Hillary’s homebrew server is going to be looked at again, which isn’t a good thing for the Democrats.
All of which proves just one thing — don’t poke the bear.
