Fed-Up Trump To Sue CNN Over Network’s Pro-Impeachment Bias

President Donald Trump’s campaign has just promised to sue CNN after the network’s president Jeff Zucker was allegedly caught on tape revealing the channel’s blatant bias towards impeachment.

The Washington Examiner reported that Trump attorney Charles J. Harder has sent a four page letter to CNN, Zucker and Executive Vice President David Vigilante in which he cited years of anti-Trump bias at the network and claimed that the cable giant has broken its promise of “excellence in journalism.” Harder went on to cite the newly released Project Veritas video tapes of CNN insiders describing Zucker’s demand for “impeachment above all else,” explaining that the tapes “are merely the tip of the iceberg of the evidence my clients have accumulated over recent years.”

“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,” Harder continued.

Though he acknowledged that media is usually protected under the First Amendment, Harder explained that the bias he cited at CNN was a violation of the Lanham Act “by constituting misrepresentations to the public, to your advertisers, and to others” to distibute “truly fair and balanced” news.

“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,” Harder said in his letter.

Harder then stated that even if Trump’s campaign and CNN come to an agreement, he would seek money as part of that deal.

“Please contact the undersigned to discuss an appropriate resolution of this matter, which 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,” Harder wrote.

Harder said that the Project Veritas tapes have explicitly exposed Zucker’s blatant anti-Trump agenda.

“Recently released video footage of individuals alleged to be your employees indicates that your reporting relating to President Trump is contrary to your own mission and the aforementioned Code of Ethics,” harder wrote. “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.”
