BREAKING: Trump Campaign Sues the Washington Post for ‘Defamation’ Over ‘False’ Russia Reports

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.03.20

Just weeks after filing a lawsuit against the New York Times, the Trump campaign is now suing the Washington Post for “misleading” stories the newspaper published regarding the President’s relationship with Russia.

“The complaint obtained by Fox News was filed in the U.S. District Court in Washington D.C. by attorneys David C. Tobin and Charles J. Harder. It points to a pair of Post articles published in June 2019 that included statements tying the Trump campaign to foreign campaign interference,” reports Fox News.

“The statements were and are 100 percent false and defamatory. The complaint alleges The Post 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,” Senior Legal Adviser to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. Jenna Ellis said in a statement

“The Mueller Report concluded there was no conspiracy between the Campaign and the Russian government, and no United States person intentionally coordinated with Russia’s efforts to interfere with the 2016 election,” the complaint said.

‘MAGA’ MISTAKE! Covington Student SUES Washington Post for $250 MILLION Over Viral Video

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.20.19

Lawyers representing the Covington High School student featured in a now infamous viral video announced Tuesday night their plans to sue the Washington Post for $250 million in “punitive damages.”

The lawsuit -filed in Kentucky- claims the Post used “a modern-day form of McCarthyism” by “using its vast financial resources to enter the bully pulpit by publishing a series of false and defamatory print and online articles … to smear a young boy who was in its view an acceptable casualty in their war against the president.”

Court filings show the suit claims the national newspaper “falsely accused Nicholas of … ‘accost[ing]’ Phillips by ‘suddenly swarm[ing]’ him in a ‘threaten[ing]’ and ‘physically intimidat[ing]’ manner … ‘block[ing]’ Phillips path, refusing to allow Phillips ‘to retreat,’ ‘taunting the dispersing indigenous crowd,’ [and] chanting, ‘Build that wall,’ ‘Trump2020,’ or ‘Go back to Africa,’ and otherwise engaging in racist and improper conduct.”

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.12.19

Controversial Rep. Ilhan Omar stunned Americans on both sides of the political aisle Friday; comparing her previous comments on the 9/11 terror attack with George W. Bush’s address from the rubble of the World Trade Center.

“’The people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!’ President George W. Bush. Was Bush downplaying the terrorist attack? What if he was a Muslim?” posted Omar on social media.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi confirmed Friday she plans to “speak to her” regarding Omar’s stunning rhetoric.
