Boom: Donald Trump’s Legal Team Sends MASSIVE Wake Up Call To CNN, Threatens Immediate Lawsuit

Donald Trump’s legal team fired off a massive letter – almost three-hundred pages – to the CEO of CNN informing him of his intent to sue the corporate media giant if it did not immediately retract previous statements made about the former president.

Like nearly all of the media outlets covering Trump, CNN went out of its way to disparage, harass, humiliate, and demonize him – mostly with exaggerated stories or outright lies. One need only look at the difference in coverage for election fraud claims made by Hillary Clinton in 2016 and Donald Trump in 2020 to get the gist of Trump’s lawsuit, though that is by no means the only angle corporate media took to turn the nation against him.

Media outlets won Pulitzer prizes for reporting on the debunked hoax of Russian Collusion, and as the nation watches Joe Biden allegedly recover from Covid it’s astonishing to replay or reread past segments from the corrupt press on Trump’s own battle with the virus.

Anyone with a functioning brain can see that America’s Pravda machine is due for its day in court.

Forbes reviewed Trump’s legal notice to CNN. Summarizing key details, it wrote:

“Trump released a 282-page letter that his attorney, Jim Trusty, sent last week to CNN CEO Chris Licht demanding the network “immediately take down the false and defamatory publications” and issue retraction statements.

Trusty argued in the letter that CNN rushed to label Trump a liar for his unproven voter fraud allegations and “consistently fed a narrative that denounced President Trump’s legitimacy and competency,” among other claims he said constitute defamation.

The letter also claimed that CNN treated Trump worse than other public figures found to be dishonest, naming actor Jussie Smollett, who falsely claimed he was the victim of a hate crime, as an example.

Trump said in a Wednesday statement he will be taking legal action against media outlets that “defrauded the public regarding the overwhelming evidence of fraud,” though the former president has thus far failed to provide evidence to back up his assertion.”

As with most peddled narratives regarding Trump, the sanctity of the 2020 election remains in doubt. To this day, there have been no “official” investigations into any conclusive results, though there have been plenty of outside efforts to raise doubts. 

Dinesh D’Souza recently released 2000 Mules, which explores ballot drop boxes being illegally used. To say this election was free and fair in the face of that evidence alone calls into question every election then. Is cheating just par for the course?

D’Souza is far from alone. Peter Navarro, now conveniently entangled with the Department of Justice, wrote extensively on election “irregularities” in the 2020 cycle.

Conservatives can accept a fair result. What they can’t accept is gaslighting. If Hillary can protest 2016 (and call the victor illegitimate) but Trump can’t do the same in 2020, it’s absurd on its face. The public health response to Covid is also another significant red-pill moment. The same could be said of the events on January 6th or the completely made-up Russian Collusion scam.

Essentially, if they can cheat and lie on other things, why wouldn’t they cheat and lie on this?

Relating to the lawsuit, Forbes concludes:

“More than 7,700. That’s how many times references to the “Big Lie” have been made on CNN, according to Trusty. His letter demands CNN “immediately cease and desist from its continued use of ‘Big Lie’ and ‘lying’ when describing President Trump’s subjective belief regarding the integrity of the 2020 election.” Licht reportedly told CNN producers last month they should tamp down usage of the term “Big Lie” amid complaints that the network has been skewing to the political left in its coverage.”
