Trump campaign sues CNN for libel over Russia report

President Trump’s reelection marketing campaign filed a libel lawsuit towards CNN on Friday, searching for damages for the community’s “intentionally publishing false statements” concerning the marketing campaign contemplating assist from Russia within the present election.

The grievance states that CNN reported on Feb. 25 that the Trump marketing campaign “assessed the potential risks and benefits of again seeking Russia’s help in 2020 and has decided to leave that option on the table.”

“The statements were and are 100 percent false and defamatory,” mentioned Trump marketing campaign senior authorized adviser Jenna Ellis. “The complaint alleges CNN was aware of the falsity at the time it published them, but did so for the intentional purpose of hurting the campaign, while misleading its own readers in the process.”

She mentioned the marketing campaign demanded in writing that CNN retract and apologize for the false report, however the community refused.

The lawsuit is the third in two weeks towards information retailers for reporting allegations about Russia. The marketing campaign additionally has sued The New York Times and The Washington Post.



“The campaign filed this lawsuit against CNN and the preceding suits against The New York Times and The Washington Post to hold the publishers accountable for their reckless false reporting and also to establish the truth: that the campaign did not have an agreement, quid pro quo, or collusion with Russia, as the Mueller Report concluded,” Ms. Ellis mentioned. “The campaign was motivated by the fact that the publications recklessly published false statements which caused harm and intentionally mislead their readers.”

She mentioned false statements “are not protected under the U.S. Constitution; therefore, these suits will have no chilling effect on freedom of the press.”

“If journalists are more accurate in their statements and reporting, that would be a positive development, but not why these suits were filed,” she mentioned.
