After a full week of exposing CNN, there is big news to share with you…

President Donald Trump and his legal team have threatened to sue CNN for violating the Lanham Act.

“This firm is litigation counsel for President Donald J. Trump and Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. We write concerning your biased reporting practices relating to our clients. The terms “you” and “your” in this letter shall collectively refer to CNN Broadcasting, Inc., CNN Productions, Inc., CNN Interactive Group, Inc., the website located at CNN.com, and all broadcast television stations owned, operated or affiliated with the foregoing.”

“Your actions are in violation of the Lanham Act (15 U.S.C. § 1051 et seq.), among other applicable laws, by constituting misrepresentations to the public, to your advertisers, and others. Accordingly, 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.”

This is truly unprecedented for Project Veritas. Due to the courageous actions of CNN insider Cary Poarch, the President’s legal team has found enough evidence for a lawsuit against Jeff Zucker and CNN.

In the letter sent to Jeff Zucker, President Trump’s counsel linked to Project Veritas’ Part 1 video showing CNN’s bias towards the President.

“Recently released video footage of individuals alleged to be your employees (see
) (the “Footage”) indicates that your reporting relating to President Trump is contrary to your own mission and the aforementioned Code of Ethics. Your own employees appear to state that CNN is focused on trying to “take down President Trump,” driven by a “personal vendetta” that Mr. Zucker purportedly has against him, rather than reporting the news in an objective manner. In the Footage, your employees appear to state that CNN attempts to make its reporting appear neutral and unbiased, when in fact its reporting is far from neutral and highly biased against the President.”

In the same letter, there are quotes from CNN insider Cary Poarch, CNN Media Coordinator Nick Neville, and CNN Media Coordinator Christian Sierra!

This is the time to get a response from CNN, Time Warner, and AT&T executives!

Below are some emails from these top executives, will you write them right now?

Trump Threatens CNN with Lawsuit After Undercover Video Emerges
By Bradley Evans
Published October 18, 2019 at 1:38pm
President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign sent a letter to CNN on Friday threatening to sue the network for its “sustained barrage of unfair, unfounded, unethical and unlawful attacks” against the president.

The letter, penned by Trump campaign attorney Charles Harder and addressed to CNN president Jeff Zucker and general counsel David Vigilante, comes just days after conservative activist organization Project Veritas released a video alleging deep-seated bias at the network.

The video features footage secretly recorded by now-former CNN employee Cary Poarch in which various staffers discuss the network’s liberal bias and Zucker’s “personal vendetta” against Trump.

Zucker himself can be heard pushing for more impeachment coverage in one of the recordings.

“We’re moving towards impeachment. I mean, we shouldn’t pretend this is going one way. And so all these moves are moves towards impeachment,” Zucker can be heard saying. “So don’t lose sight of what the biggest story is.”

Harder’s letter takes Zucker and his network to task for their claims of unbiased reporting when the evidence from Project Veritas points to the contrary.

“Your website expressly represents to the public, in writing, that you are ‘journalists,’ ‘truth seekers,’ ‘united by a mission to inform, engage and empower the world,’ and you ‘stand for excellence in journalism and [your] products,’ Harder writes.

“Recently released video footage of individuals alleged to be your employees … indicates that your reporting related to President Trump is contrary to your own mission,” he says.

“Your own employees appear to state that CNN is focused on trying to ‘take down President Trump.'”

Harder goes on to hint that the footage from Project Veritas is not the only documentation he has of CNN’s bias.
Harder alleges that the discrepancy between CNN’s assertions of objectivity and the reality of its anti-Trump bias violates federal law.

“Your actions are in violation of the Lanham Act … among other applicable laws, by constituting misrepresentations to the public, to your advertisers, and others,” he writes.

The Lanham Act, passed by Congress in 1946, creates requirements for trademark protection and sets standards for trademark infringement, according to Cornell Law School’s Legal Information Institute.

The Trump lawyer closes his letter by suggesting a “resolution” for the network’s coverage of his client, which he says “would include a substantial payment of damages, as well as all other appropriate measures that are necessary to fully address the magnitude of the situation.”

While the president frequently refers to CNN and other establishment media outlets as “fake news,” his attorney’s threat to sue is a marked escalation in rhetoric.

CNN responded to Harder’s letter with a statement dismissing the attorney’s allegations.

“This is nothing more than a desperate PR stunt and doesn’t merit a response,” CNN spokesman Matt Dornic said, according to The Hill.
“The aforementioned examples are merely the tip of the iceberg of the evidence my clients have accumulated over recent years,” he claims.

“We also expect substantial additional information about CNN’s wrongful practices to become known in the coming days and weeks.”

In perhaps the most forceful paragraph of the letter, Harder describes in a sentence his dim view of CNN’s reporting.

“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 so-called ‘mainstream’ news, as the current situation,” he writes.

“All that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combated, suppressed — only to emerge all the more powerfully, all the more triumphantly from the struggle.”

How about a thoughtful response to the topic rather than a flippant insult to the President?

I hope that he does it, he would set a First Amendment precedent and change the law, if he won.
And that is the only way that conservatives can fight back, which is to sue the creeps.

Usually when I make a thoughtful point using statistics and data, it is ignored. People here don't usually want a thoughtful discourse, they just want to hear an echo or make snide remarks. A thoughtful point might be, how many times does Mr. Trump, threaten but fail to follow through or how many lawsuits has he won vs lost or dropped. I did not start the point of him "suing" I simply pointed out how much that is bold talk - if someone has some stat's to show how successful he has been in these suits I would certainly like to see it. If I am wrong I will concede gracefully. By the way this is not exclusive to the time he has been President, this history has a long precedent.

You shouldn't expect decent behavior and civil discourse from a liberal. Those are attributes missing from people who gleefully support the murder of children.
