[Ed. – Will this be the end of CNN?]
Attorney Alan Dershowitz has filed a $300 million defamation lawsuit against CNN over its editing of comments he made during President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial in January.
Dershowitz had said that Trump should be impeached if he had done anything illegal but that actions made by a president to secure election as part of his commitment to the public interest would not necessarily and automatically be a quid pro quo if those actions were not illegal.
In his lawsuit, Dershowitz said CNN edited his remarks to distort his meaning, according to Law and Crime.
“Following the airing of that clip over and over again, the hosts, together with their panel guests, including CNN employees and paid commentators, exploded into a one-sided and false narrative that Professor Dershowitz believes … the President … could do anything at all — including illegal acts — and be immune from impeachment,” the lawsuit said.
