Full Title: Trump campaign sends memo to television producers warning about 'credibility' of six Trump critics who it says spread false claims about collusion

Trump's re-election campaign sent a memo to television producers on Monday instructing them to "employ basic journalistic standards when booking" six current or former government officials that the campaign said "made outlandish, false claims, without evidence" while on air.

The memo names:

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., the chair of the House Judiciary Committee Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez John Brennan, the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the chair of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., who has floated a potential bid for president In a statement, Swalwell said that the "only person who has been caught lying about Russia is Donald Trump."

"If he thinks I've made a false statement, he can sue me. And I'll beat him in court," Swalwell said.

The others targeted in the memo either declined to comment or did not respond to a request for comment from CNBC.

They’re going to accuse PDJT of “violating the First Amendment.”

Yes. Been patiently waiting for this for two years, good to finally see.

You know Trump’s crew has a lot of dirt on his (our) enemies; how could they not?

I so hope Barack and Hillary get what they richly deserve.

Blumenthal’s lies are the coin of the realm for major media outlets here.

How do you know when he is lying? When his lips are moving!

I hope the TV stations ignore this memo . . . and lose their FCC licenses. Unlike Chris Matthews, I believe that PDJT really does know how to play hardball.

The Dems still keep talking about the evidence. What evidence? Mueller didn’t find any.

Are there any actual laws on the books that govern or regulate journalistic integrity? If not maybe there should be.

I would call him Luca, like Luca Brasi in the movie.

Roger Ebert wrote:

“The Godfather” is told entirely within a closed world. That’s why we sympathize with characters who are essentially evil.”

And that’s what the Dems/media have been trying to do.

Their closed world is beginning to open.

That would violate the 1st amendment.
