BREAKING: Trump Campaign Files Libel Lawsuit Against New York Times for Russia Conspiracies

Fake news has consequences.

The Donald J. Trump For President campaign filed a new defamation lawsuit against the New York Times in the New York Supreme Court on Wednesday, seeking to the hold the legacy media publication accountable for its false claims of a conspiracy between Trump and the government of Russia to assist in Trump’s 2016 election as President.

The development could represent the first step towards holding fake news accountable for wide-ranging conspiracies alleging Russian interference in American politics on behalf of Trump, a recurring theme in the New York Times’ editorial and news coverage since the President’s election.

The Trump campaign is pointing to an op-ed in 2019 as an incident in which the Times “knowingly published false and defamatory statements,” most notably claiming that President Trump was willfully working with the Russia to ensure his election. The Times claimed Russia was boosting Trump’s political prospects with the hopes of a pro-Russian foreign policy to come during the Trump administration.

Jenna Ellis, senior legal counsel to the campaign, released a statement on the matter upon the lawsuit’s filing.

Pervasive claims of Russian interference in American politics were largely shut down by the conclusion of Robert Mueller’s much-hyped probe into the matter, the Special Counsel having failed to find evidence of any plot between the President and Russia to benefit his election.

Fake news has consequences. The New York Times could follow in the footsteps of CNN in facing an expensive settlement with someone it’s defamed, the latter recently being forced to settle with Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann for its slanted editorial coverage of the high school student.

In a statement provided to Big League Politics, College Republicans United at Arizona State University emphasized the need for conservatives to unite against the authoritarian alliance of the Democratic Party and Silicon Valley tech monopolies.

Democrats use to be the loudest critics of ‘Corporate America’ trampling on the rights of average Americans. These days they are nothing more then corporate apologists who protect crony capitalism.”

Populist Senator Josh Hawley has taken point in the drive to hold Silicon Valley oligarchs to account for their censorship of the American people, but the anti-Big Tech movement has been hamstrung by malcontents within the Senate GOP caucus unwilling to do little more than whine about censorship, while actively undermining a policy solution.
