Posted on 08/23/2016 6:41:07 AM PDT by Navy Patriot
Donald Trump has hired the lawyer who helped Hulk Hogan win an invasion-of-privacy case against Gawker and given him a new mission: threaten legal action against several media outlets that picked up a Slovenian magazine's report claiming that Melania Trump worked as an escort in the 1990s.
The website Liberal America on Monday posted a letter it received from Hollywood attorney Charles Harder demanding a retraction and an apology. Politico reported that at least three other news organizations, including London's Daily Mail, received the same notice, which warns that Melania Trump will "institute immediate legal proceedings against you" if her conditions are not met.

Obama never intimidated the media...... /s
It’s about time the presstitutes start shivering in their boots. Bullies don’t like someone who fights back.
An accusation of being a prostitute is worthy of a lawsuit. It’s outrageous.
I guess the Washington Post doesn’t think Melania as a woman has the right to defend herself under the law. But Hillary’s child rapist was just fine.
So, how is Trump protecting his wife from lies, “intimidating”?
Trump would have to show that journalists knowingly published a false story or acted with reckless disregard for the truth.
Which should be a slam dunk and very easy to prove, They ARE ALL LIARS.
It bears repeating, Hillary used the law to defend a child rapist and her rapist husband, but Melania can’t defend herself in court?
When the Washington Post assigns 20+ reporters to get the dirt on Hillary, I’ll start to think they’re fair and unbiased. Until then, they’re unprofessional garbage.
I'm sorry, I just HAD to post this guy's pic!
Beat me to it. The media fear facing consequences for their lies.
More worthy of pistols at dawn.
The MSM is so in the tank for Hillary Clinton that they are completely unaware of the very visible signs of serious health issues. Can you imagine the complete meltdown of the MSM if Hillary is capacitated for any reason within the next 45 days?
Golly, if this keeps up, Big Media might actually be forced to (gulp) report the truth.
How dare this Trump guy refuse to be intimidated!
And yet the ComPost said nothing for years as investigative journalists like Breitbart were targeted.
The MSM is so spoiled. They’re used to Republicans accepting whatever abuse they dish out.
Typical abusers—they don’t expect their victims to come back at them with greater force.
Callum Borchers aka queer bait.
When Trump wins this, he is going to make the MSM sources apologize at great, great length or will simply not grant interviews.
Bwahahahahaha. Run, bitches.
I'd guess "The Freerepublic" is No. 1 on her hitlist.
