Donald Trump is getting ready to get the lawyers involved again.
This week, Trump announced he is prepared to file suit against CNN.
He is a little sick and tired of CNN hitting him regarding the 2020 election.
Trump made the announcement via his Save America PAC on Wednesday.
He stated, “I have notified CNN of my intent to file a lawsuit over their repeated defamatory statements against me.
“I will also be commencing actions against other media outlets who have defamed me and defrauded the public regarding the overwhelming evidence of fraud throughout the 2020 Election.
“I will never stop fighting for the truth and for the future of our Country!”
The suit was reportedly 282 pages long, filled with data printed or transmitted by the agency that Trump believes as defamatory in nature.
Trump’s attorneys have given CNN 10 days to publish a retraction, or they will take this to court.
Trump attorney James Trusty stated, “President Trump harbors a subjective belief that he was unfairly deprived of a second term in office.
“This is particularly valid in the context of an incumbent president receiving over 74 million votes, a record number for any Republican candidate in history.
“By refusing to acknowledge President Trump could be correct or that he could genuinely believe his contention is correct, CNN has willfully acted in disregard for the truth and has acted with reckless disregard for the truth.
“CNN’s relentless and willful campaign to brand President Trump a ‘liar’ and purveyor of the ‘Big Lie’ is defamatory in nature.”
So, let’s be honest… this suit will get dismissed long before it ever sees the inside of a courtroom, and this attorney should be disbarred for taking a case that is dead in the water.
Regardless, it feeds Trump’s narrative and gets him some attention while at the same time feeding his base the idea that he still is not giving up.
The danger of the suit is that more than a few conservatives are sick and tired of hearing about 2020 and this could just as easily backfire on Trump, especially when the case gets dismissed before it ever gets started.
