Trump campaign files lawsuit against NYT

Feb 27, 2020 09:50 IST

The Trump Campaign on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against The New York Times, alleging that the newspaper falsely reported that they had a pact with Russia, to help the campaign against Hillary Clinton in exchange for a new pro-Russian foreign policy, starting with relief from economic sanctions. The lawsuit aims to hold the news organisation accountable for 'intentionally publishing false statements against Trump's campaign'. Senior legal adviser to President Trump said, the claims made by the newspaper were 100% false and defamatory. In a statement, a New York Times spokesperson said, the Trump Campaign has turned to the courts to try to punish an journalist for having an opinion they find unacceptable, but fortunately, the law protects the right of Americans to express their judgments and they look forward to stand vindicated in the case.
