Donald Trump sues CNN for $475 million over defamation

THE AMERICAN DIGEST - Staff Writers - OCT 6, 2022

Former President Donald Trump is suing CNN for $475 million over defamation, according to a new lawsuit filed on Monday.

The lawsuit centers on the network’s labeling of Trump as racist, along with comparisons with Adolf Hitler and Nazi themes.

“[T]he time has finally come to hold CNN responsible and legally accountable for their willful deception and defamatory statements made about me and both, directly and indirectly, my strong, devoted, and patriotic supporters,” Trump said in a statement released after the lawsuit.

“Likewise, we may bring appropriate action against the Unselect Committee of January 6th,” he added.

The new lawsuit flips the script of Trump’s enemies attacking him through lawsuits, seeking now to stop CNN from its ongoing criticisms that have been heavily biased against him.

The legal move may play out for a long time as well, offering Trump an opportunity to at least slow down the network’s future attacks as he deals with its past.
