WATCH: CNN Won’t Apologize For Calling Trump A Liar; Attorney Says Lawsuit Coming “Shortly”

A spokesperson for Donald Trump has already announced that the former president intends to sue news networks, beginning with CNN, that have called him out for false statements about the 2020 election — those who have described the lies as lies, and called Trump a liar for telling them. Now an attorney on his behalf says the first of these lawsuits is coming ‘shortly,’ because CNN won’t retract statements.

WASHINGTON, DC – JULY 21: A video of former President Donald Trump played on a screen during a hearing of the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the US Capitol on July 21, 2022 in Washington, DC. The bipartisan committee, which has been gathering evidence on the January 6 attack at the U.S. Capitol, is presenting its findings in a series of televised hearings.

Ironically, attorney Lindsey Halligan says that CNN should not make claims they can’t back up with facts — which is exactly what the network, and virtually every other news outlet, has pointed out that Trump was doing with regard to so-called election fraud.

Trump continued to make false claims about the election as he worked to overturn the outcome, and throughout the numerous lawsuits and events that his supporters carried out, there was never any evidence brought forward that was sufficient to prove any widespread election misconduct.

The false claim that the 2020 election was quickly dubbed “The Big Lie,” and Trump has not been able to counter that, despite insisting the election itself was the “real” lie. Now his attorney says that the first defamation case is imminent.

“CNN branded President Trump as a liar, and referred to his questions regarding voting fraud as the Big Lie…if you’re going to call someone a liar, back it up with researched well-founded facts…CNN responded to our letter today advising us that they will not retract any of the statements so they will be getting served with a lawsuit very shortly.”

Notably, virtually every news network, including CNN, has presented evidence that Trump’s claims were, at best, unsupported, and the January 6th Committee has presented evidence that he was given ample information to know that the claims he was making were false — that he was lying.
