On January 17, 2019, the Democratic National Committee filed an amendment to their original lawsuit against the Russian Federation, the GRU, Wikileaks, the Trump Campaign, and several individuals related to the mentioned organizations. The amended complaint, the DNC's second in the case, alleges Russian attempts to hack the DNC through a spearfishing campaign soon after the conclusion of the 2018 midterm elections.
