Trump files defamation lawsuit against CNN, vows to sue others ‘who have defrauded the public’ regarding the 2020 election


President Donald Trump announced his intent to file lawsuits against several media outlets, including CNN, over their “repeated defamatory statements” against him.

“I have notified CNN of my intent to file a lawsuit over their repeated defamatory statements against me,” Trump wrote via his Save America PAC on Wednesday. “I will also be commencing actions against other media outlets who have defamed me and defrauded the public regarding the overwhelming evidence of fraud throughout the 2020 Election.”

Trump continued, “I will never stop fighting for the truth and for the future of our Country!”

In his letter of intent, Trump accused CNN of “malice” for broadcasting “numerous articles and televised transmissions” with the purpose to defame him.

The 45th president also slammed their coverage of the presidential races from 2016 and 2020. He accused the network of airing false, unchallenged statements from media personalities who purported that he was “illegitimately elected” in 2016.

In 2020, however, CNN seemingly dismissed all claims of election illegitimacy, according to the document, and said Trump was a “liar” who “falsely claimed the election was being stolen from him.”

“CNN’s reporting, both before the election, as well as after the election, consistently fed a narrative that denounced President Trump’s legitimacy and competency,” the letter read.

The document also cited a Project Veritas video from last year that showed CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester bragging that the network, who dubs themselves “the most trusted name in news” helped remove Trump from of the White House.

“Look at what we did. We [CNN] got Trump out. I’m 100 percent going to say it, and I 100 percent believe that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out,” said Chester.

The 282-page notice of intent called upon CNN to publish a “full and fair correction, apology, or retraction” for more than 30 libelous articles and broadcasts, in accordance with the Florida Statues.

According to Fla. Statute § 770.02, media networks must issue a “correction, apology, or retraction” of their libelous materials within ten days of receiving a notice before they are subject to lawsuits and damages.
