Trump campaign demands ‘substantial payment’ from CNN after threatening to sue over impeachment bias

President Trump’s campaign threatened to sue CNN. The threat was issued Friday and is alleging the network is practicing biased reporting practices. The move was denounced by critics claiming that it was an attempt to intimidate the media.

Attorney Charles Harder’s letter to CNN read, “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,”

CNN’s response was that “this is nothing more than a desperate PR stunt and doesn’t merit a response.”

Attorneys who looked into the suit said if filed, this lawsuit would go nowhere. The lawsuit is mostly being regarded as a PR stunt but some say it’s an attack on free speech.
