Donald Trump Cites Michael Sussman Trial In Threatening Letter To Pulitzer Board — “See You In Court”

Donald Trump has again reached out to the Pulitzer Prize board, demanding that they rescind awards given in 2018 to reporters who covered his contacts with Russia, and Russian interference in the 2016 election. This time, he’s backing the demand with a threat of legal action — and citing Michael Sussman’s trial.

Though the letter is dated May 27th, Trump shared scans of it to his Truth Social account four days later, on Tuesday morning. The timing was a bit odd, as the letter cited the trial of Michael Sussman as a reason that his demands should be granted — and he posted within an hour of Sussman being found not guilty on the single charge against him.

You can see images below of all three pages of Trump’s demand letter. Though it rambles on his innocence and what he calls the “Russia hoax,” the central premise is that he considers the reporting for which the prizes were awarded to be inaccurate (and to be negative about him) and that he demands (again) that the awards be rescinded.

“There is no dispute that the Pulitzer Board’s award to those media outlets was based on false and fabricated information that they published,” Trump asserts, insisting that the continued recognition of those reporters on the Pulter site “is a distortion of fact and a personal defamation that will result in litigation” if the Board doesn’t decide to rescind the awards.

He also accuses the Pulitzer Prize board of doing “all [they] can to destroy [his] reputation,” and demands, “How do I get my reputation back?”

Finally he demands that the board maintains all records relevant to these awards and that they “pay close attention to the testimony at [Michael] Sussman’s trial” — ironic, since about the time that he was posting this to Truth Social, Sussman was being found not guilty, based on the evidence presented at that trial.
