(RoyalPatriot.com )- Last week, former president Donald Trump sent a 282-page letter to CNN dated back to their reporting from the 2016 election campaign and served as a “notice of intent to pursue a legal action for defamation.”
In a statement, Trump stated that he had informed CNN of his decision to bring a lawsuit over their repeated libelous accusations against him. He will also launch legal measures against other media organizations that have slandered him and misled the public about the resounding proof of fraud in the 2020 election.
“I’ll never give up the struggle for the truth and the future of our nation!”
According to reports, the July 21 letter from Ifrah Law demands that CNN retract its coverage of Trump since 2016 within ten days. Failure to do so would risk being sued for slander.
The letter to CNN states that within ten (10) days of the date of service of the notice, CNN shall publish a full and fair correction, apology, or retraction, in the same editions or related issues of the website publication in which the foregoing articles, transcripts, or broadcasts appeared and in as conspicuous a place, and type as said original article, transcript, or broadcast.
“A lawsuit will be filed against you, CNN, for damages if you fail to publish such a correction, apology, or retraction.”
Reports show thirty-four examples of the claimed defamation are included in the letter, including published CNN reports, opinions, and CNN broadcasts. Exhibit 1 opens with a CNN analysis of Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony from June before the House Select Committee on January 6.
According to the suit, the demand letter states CNN must
(1) immediately take down the false and defamatory publications.
(2) immediately issue a full and fair retraction of the statements identified herein in as conspicuous a manner as they were originally published.
(3) immediately cease and desist from using the terms ‘Big Lie’ and ‘Lying’ while describing President Trump’s subjective belief regarding the integrity of the 2020 election
The letter further demanded CNN preserve documents and records to prepare for legal action.
The letter also served as a notice to CNN and affiliated entities, officers, directors, journalists, correspondents, editors, employees, agents, assignees, and other people acting on CNN’s behalf or in concert with CNN to preserve any and all evidence related in any way to the accusations as mentioned above which the collective made and any other information that may be relevant.
Media reports show the letter was addressed to new CNN CEO Chris Licht and CNN VP and General Counsel David Vigilante.
I hope they televise this on prime time if it goes to trial
