Former President Donald Trump has announced he plans to sue CNN.
“Donald Trump on Wednesday announced his intention to sue CNN, one of the prime purveyors of what Trump has famously deemed ‘fake news,’ over ‘repeated defamatory statements’ against him, warning that he will take similar action against other media outlets as well,” reports Breitbart.
A 282-page letter, addressed to CNN’s Chief Executive Officer Chris Licht and CNN’s executive Vice President and General Counsel David Vigilante, asks for:
“…a full and fair correction, apology, or retraction, in the same editions or corresponding issues of the website publication in which the aforementioned articles, transcripts, or broadcasts appeared and in as conspicuous a place and type as said original article, transcript or broadcast within ten (10) days from the date of service of this notice.”
“Failure to publish such a correction, apology, or retraction will result in the filing of a lawsuit and damages being sought against you, CNN,” the letter continues, detailing several samples of what Trump’s team deems is defamation.
“I have notified CNN of my intent to file a lawsuit over their repeated defamatory statements against me,” Trump said.
“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,” Trump added promising to “never stop fighting for the truth and for the future of our Country!”
