Byron YorkWashington Examiner Chief Political Correspondent, Underrated Hillary Clinton’s hints of a possible lawsuit against the former President Donald Trump and Fox News for defamation.
During Clinton’s Thursday speech at the New York State Democratic Convention, she speak “They’re getting close to real malice in their attacks” – referring to Trump and Fox.
York weighed in on Fox Business Tonight shortly after, saying: “But one interesting thing about the speech was that when she talked about her grievances against the right-wing, quote, she used the phrase ‘genuine malice’ to refer to the press is a legal phrase, it is the legal standard to defame a person who is a public figure to sue a publication. “
“Now, I can’t imagine she would actually event a publication, can you imagine finding out in a case like that?” York continued, referring to the pre-trial stage in a lawsuit in which each party investigates the facts of the case and can obtain evidence from the other.
While York said a “publication”, he was apparently referring to Clinton’s line in the speech in which she called Fox News, saying, “Fox leads the charge with allegations against I.”
“But it’s interesting that she uses the phrase,” concludes York.
Dagen McDowell replied, saying, “that she is essentially threatening the press and Fox with legal action.
McDowell continued, saying, “And it’s all down to court records. Like, anyone can come and read what are these records. “
Clinton accused the former Trump and Fox News on Wednesday of “desperately filming a fake scandal to distract from his real ones.”
Trump accused Clinton of espionage and even declare The spying allegations are part of a broader effort to “sabotage” the 2020 presidential election.
Durham’s investigation has so far produced no allegations of espionage. Durham’s findings and court filings suggest that an attorney with ties to Clinton obtained non-public data from the White House and Trump’s servers – though not in an illegal way.
The attorney in question, Michael Sussmann, was last year charged by Durham with lying to the FBI. Being an insider explainthe charges stem from Sussman’s attempt to get the FBI to investigate allegations that the Trump campaign used a secret email server to communicate with Alfa Bank of Russia during the 2016 campaign. discovered any evidence of such a link”.
According to Durham, an article published on FoxNews.com that helped promote the “Hillary Spying” story had a misleading headline claiming, “Clinton campaign paid to ‘infiltrate’ the Tower Trump, the White House server to link Trump to Russia.”
It should be noted that Durham’s profile does not have the “penetration” as the Fox News headline suggests. Later in the article, it was noted that the word was used by a former Trump administration official Kash Patel.
