Skip to comments.Reid spokesman: Trump 'always used threats and intimidation' (to combat slander and libel)

Several hours after Donald Trump's campaign manager warned Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid to be careful "in a legal sense" after he released a statement calling the president-elect a "sexual predator," Reid's spokesman criticized Trump for trying to "silence his critics with the threat of legal action."
It only took five days for President-elect Trump to try to silence his critics with the threat of legal action. This should shock and concern all Americans," Adam Jentleson, Reid's deputy chief of staff, said in a statement released Sunday.
Trump has always used threats and intimidation to silence his critics," Jentleson continued. "Now he wants to silence a discussion of the acts of hate and threats of violence being committed in his name across the country. Silencing this discussion normalizes hate and intimidates the victims."
On Sunday morning, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, appearing on "Fox News Sunday" with host Chris Wallace, said she found Reid's public comments about Trump and other Republicans "to be beyond the pale."
"He should be very careful about characterizing somebody in a legal sense. He thinks he thinks he's just being some kind of political pundit there, but I would say be very careful about the way you characterize it," Conway said to Wallace.

Trump need to sen him some presidential dumbbells
Just putting them on notice that he will not be Bushwacked. This man will fight back!
Vicious slanderous bastard. I hope he burns in Hell.
Election’s over, Harry.
Does that include the Bundy Ranch action ?
And Reid always lies! Always!!!
The exit of this sh!thead can come soon enough!!
Really. This asshole threatened and intimidated everyone during the Iraq war that we were losing and he now tells us this?
It only took five days for President-elect Trump to try to silence his critics with the threat of legal action. This should shock and concern all Americans”
It is only ‘shocking’ to the lefties b/c Trump is ready, willing, and able to fight back against those traitors.
Reid is irrelavent and will be at room temperature soon enough. Ignore.
Obviously Reid and Jentleson don't have access to TV
Those aren't Republicans demonstrating and rioting out there !
Reid may talk all he want from the Snate floor, but once he is off the floor, he is subject to civil and criminal charges.
From the Senate or from the material plane?
Shut up Dingy. When Americans want any crap out of you, we’ll unscrew your head and dip it out.
Only scoundrels fear fair arbitration.
Needs to be repeated!
When oh when does he leave?
Apparently the wise Sen Reid has never heard of “Slander”. If I were to call him a child rapist and a cannibal in the press, I would be expected to present some facts, myself.
Or else, I, too would no doubt be charged with slander (or libel if I printed it). The good Senator would do everyone a favor if he would bother to learn something about the laws he is allegedly in charge of creating, before spouting off like an idiot.
BE CAREFUL Dingy Hairy...you don’t have your mob connections anymore...that’s why you got your brains knocked out...
And don’t ever forget about the Bundy’s and the Hammonds either and that little deal you did with Clinton, China and the mob...people know, people talk, and some people don’t like what they hear and see, you, most of all, should understand those rules!!!
