It appears that Trump is taking off the kid gloves as recent reports show that CNN received a letter from his lawyers that he plans to sue the network for impeachment bias and violating the Lanham Act.
The letter by President Trump’s attorney Charles J. Harder says: “Never in the history of this country has a President been the subject of such a sustained barrage of unfair, unfounded, unethical and unlawful attacks by so-called ‘mainstream’ news, as the current situation.”
Charles J. Harder claimed the basis for the lawsuit is that CNN’s bias violates the Lanham Act “by constituting misrepresentations to the public, to your advertisers, and to others”
“Accordingly, my clients intend to file legal action against you, to seek compensatory damages, treble damages, punitive damages, injunctive relief, reimbursement of legal costs, and all other available legal and equitable remedies, to the maximum extent permitted by law.”
“Please contact the undersigned to discuss an appropriate resolution of this matter, which would include a substantial payment of damages, as well as all other appropriate measures that are necessary to fully address the magnitude of the situation,”
The letter references the new Project Veritas expose about political bias from inside CNN.
“Recently released video footage of individuals alleged to be your employees indicates that your reporting relating to President Trump is contrary to your own mission and the aforementioned Code of Ethics.”
“Your own employees appear to state that CNN is focused on trying to ‘take down President Trump,’ driven by a ‘personal vendetta’ that Mr. Zucker purportedly has against him, rather than reporting the news in an objective manner.”
