Trump Threatens to Sue CNN
"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," Trump lawyer Charles Harder writes to CNN President Jeff Zucker and Executive Vice President David Vigilante.
This week, Project Veritas released several videos featuring CNN employees decrying the network's coverage in the Trump era as well as audio of Zucker pushing staff to vigorously cover the House Democrats' impeachment inquiry into the president.
Monday's video showed a CNN media coordinator stating CNN's president harbors a "personal vendetta" against President Trump, while Thursday's footage is of a network field operations manager conceding the network is "totally left-leaning."
According to Harder, the admissions made by CNN staffers are a breach of journalistic ethics.
Harder represents both the Trump campaign and the president personally.
