Trump Lawyer Sends Bizarre Letter To CNN, Threatens To Sue Over ‘Unfair, Unethical And Unlawful Attacks’
Donald Trump’s attorney Charles Harder sent a letter to CNN CEO Jeff Zucker on Friday threatening to sue the network for its coverage of the president.
In the letter, which was posted on Twitter by Trump 2020 chief operating officer Michael Glassner, Harder accuses CNN of deceiving the public with its slogan of putting “facts first.”
He goes on to claim that Trump has been treated more unfairly than any president in U.S. history.
“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 the so-called ‘mainstream’ media as the current situation,” Harder writes. “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.”
