President Trump's letter to CNN
Oct 19, 2019
In the wake of the Veritas Project, which exposed CNN’s bias in journalism, Trump’s legal council wrote a letter to CNN on October 16 essentially notifying them that they were in violation of the Lanham Act and threatening legal action against them.
Your actions are in violation of the Lanham Act (15 U.S.C. § 1051 et seq.), among other applicable laws, by constituting misrepresentations to the public, to your advertisers, and others. 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.
