Trump to file a defamation lawsuit against CNN
In a statement, former US President Donald Trump states that he is going to file a lawsuit against CNN and other corporate media outlets for defamation.
In a statement released on Wednesday, former US President Donald Trump stated that he intended to file a defamation lawsuit against the media outlet CNN.
Trump's statement read that "I have notified CNN of my intent to file a lawsuit over their repeated defamatory statements against me."
Furthermore, Trump argued, in the statement, that other media outlets have also allegedly defamed him and he will pursue them with defamation lawsuits. These outlets, he said, have also, allegedly, defrauded the public with respect to the "overwhelming evidence of fraud" in the 2020 presidential election.
Moreover, the statement read that Trump will continue to fight for the truth as well as the future of the US. He also emphasized in the statement that he considered the 2020 presidential election to be fraudulent, in several states, depriving him of a presidential victory. This loss left him a subject of a political witch hunt simply because, he said, of his efforts to prove the voter fraud that occurred during the presidential elections.
No evidence regarding 2020 election
Trump, on July 26, returned to Washington for the first time since leaving the White House 18 months ago.
There is no convincing evidence that the 2020 election was contaminated, according to federal and state election officials from both parties, as well as Trump's attorney general. Courts, including justices chosen by the former president, unanimously rejected his charges of fraud.
Despite Trump's efforts to stay in power, Trump continued to deny his defeat as he made his first appearance in the nation's capital on January 20, 2021, when President Joe Biden was inaugurated in.
“It was a catastrophe that election,” Trump declared about a mile from the White House he once called home.
Indeed, even as the House Jan. 6 committee has been laying bare his attempts to remain in power and his refusal to call off his supporters as they attempted to halt the transition of power, Trump has continued to press officials to overturn Biden's victory, despite the fact that there is no legal way to do so.
