Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Trump sues CNN for $475 million over alleged 'campaign of libel and slander'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit against CNN over an alleged "campaign of libel and slander" against him, and he's seeking $475 million in punitive damages from the cable news channel.

"CNN has sought to use its massive influence— purportedly as a 'trusted' news source—to defame the Plaintiff in the minds of its viewers and readers for the purpose of defeating him politically, culminating in CNN claiming credit for '[getting] Trump out' in the 2020 presidential election," read the lawsuit.

"CNN’s campaign of dissuasion in the form of libel and slander against the Plaintiff has only escalated in recent months as CNN fears the Plaintiff will run for president in 2024," it continued.

The lawsuit listed insults that CNN guests and hosts had used against Trump, including 'racist,' 'Russian lackey,' 'insurrectionist,' and even "Hitler."

Trump has not yet announced whether he will run for president again in 2024, but he has hinted at the possibility many times.
