    Trump Campaign Sues New York Times Over 2019 Opinion Article - The New York Times

    “The Trump campaign has turned to the courts to try to punish an opinion writer for having an opinion they find unacceptable,” Eileen Murphy, a spokeswoman for The Times, said in a statement.

    “Fortunately, the law protects the right of Americans to express their judgments and conclusions, especially about events of public importance,” Ms. Murphy added. “We look forward to vindicating that right in this case.”
    “He’s [Chinese President Xi Jinping] now president for life. President for life. And he’s great,” Trump said. “I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll give that a shot someday.” ---Donald J. Trump

    Re: Trump Campaign Sues New York Times Over 2019 Opinion Article

    President Trump’s re-election campaign filed a lawsuit against the New York Times on Wednesday, charging that a column it published in 2019 libeled the president when it said his 2016 campaign was working with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton.

    The lawsuit says the column, published on March 27, 2019, falsely stated the “campaign had an ‘overarching deal’ with ‘Vladimir Putin’s oligarchy’ to ‘help the campaign against Hillary Clinton’ in exchange for ‘a new pro-Russian foreign policy, starting with relief from … economic sanctions,” Jenna Ellis, senior legal adviser to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., said in a statement.

    “The statements were and are 100 percent false and defamatory. The complaint alleges The Times 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,” the statement said.


    The lawsuit was filed in New York State Supreme Court.

    Trump campaign sues New York Times for libel
    Attorney General William Barr: “The fact of the matter is that, in waging a scorched earth, no-holds-barred war of 'Resistance' against this Administration,
    it is the Left that is engaged in the systematic shredding of norms and the undermining of the rule of law.”

    So basically, having an opinion other than the Trumpian party line can be criminalized?

    Interesting that some delude themselves into believing The NY Time's author's first amendment rights trump libeling Donald J. Trump... Trump's reelection campaign should win this suit hands down just like Trump will win the 2020 presidential election.

    He hasn't done well as the defendant, you think being the plaintiff will change his luck? Poor fragile little spoiled brat has made a political career out of badmouthing anyone who doesn't toady to him, I wonder how he'll try to intimidate the judge if, IF this actually goes to court. It'll have to happen before the election, of course. If It's still pending after he'll drop it, guaranteed.

    He probably knows he can’t win that case, per se, but he can keep pressure on the media and control the message by using concrete examples of screaming headlines that are false. If you were a stockholder, you would probably dump it.

    I don’t recall the major national press ever being as irresponsible with false reporting as it has been now a days with Trump at the helm.

    Yes and no, but it's mostly based on reading the above inane ignorance pouring forth from the anti-Trumpers on this particular thread.
