article about the lawsuit.
article continues below article by Matt Kremppell The Trump administration has filed suit against the media and its news outlets for the article that appeared in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal in late December, alleging that they violated the Hatch Act and violated their contracts by reporting about a lawsuit the administration was facing.
The lawsuit, filed by the Justice Department’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, alleged that The New Yorker and The Washington Post violated the “Federal Insider Threat Act,” which bars the publication of information that would threaten national security, by publishing the article, which alleged that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had “aggressively pursued” the business of Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
The complaint alleges that The Times and the Post published articles that were false and misleading, as well as defamatory and defamulatory, and that the articles failed to adequately disclose that The Trump campaign had been under federal investigation by the Department of Justice.
The suit also alleges that both The New England Journal and The Journal of American Law and Policy (IJLAP) published articles falsely and inaccurately reporting on Trump’s role in the investigation of Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election, falsely claiming that the President had directed the investigation.
The Journal’s article on Veselnititskaya was titled “Russia’s lawyer in the Trump-Russia collusion investigation: ‘I was asked to meet with Trump to discuss Russian involvement in 2016.'”
The article stated, “The Russian lawyer said she had no recollection of the meeting and no one from the Trump campaign asked her about it, but the campaign later asked her for information about Trump.”
The Wall ST. “
The Wall St. Journal article was titled, “Trump’s campaign lawyer’s Russian contacts revealed.
“The Wall ST.
J. article was entitled, “Donald Trump Jr. and his father’s Russia links exposed.”
The Washington Examiner article was called, “Russia probe: Trump campaign lawyers sought to meet during campaign.”
The complaint also alleged that both articles contained false information and defamed the Trump family, including Trump himself, and also falsely stated that The Washington Times and AP had reported that Trump had been fired from his job as the CEO of the company that owns the Washington Post, which the Justice Dept. has said was false.
The Trump Department has also sued The Wall Streets Journal and the New York Post for allegedly misleading the public by not reporting that The Wall street Journal reported that it had obtained and passed on to the FBI a memo of the Trump Tower meeting that Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and George Papadopoulos were set to attend with Natalia Pallys, the Russian lawyer who had been involved in arranging the meeting between the Trump associates and Veselnatskaya.
DOJ has also filed a civil complaint against The New Journal, claiming that it published false and defaming statements about the Trump transition team’s ties to the Kremlin.
DOJ also filed the complaint against the Times and WSJ for their stories on the Trump investigation, and for publishing articles falsely reporting on a separate news story in which Trump had expressed sympathy for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The DOJ complaint further alleged that the Times, WSJ, and the Associated Press “failed to properly report that the Trump team had received classified information about the Russian government and the Russian cyber attacks that led to the defeat of the 2016 presidential election,” in violation of the Hatch act.
The Wall st.
J., which has been sued by the DOJ, is suing The New London News for defaming Trump.
The Washington Journal and AP have also sued.
In response to the Justice Departments lawsuit, the DOJ’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) announced that it was investigating the actions of The New Jersey Journal, The Washington Herald, and The New Orleans Advocate.
In a statement to Buzzfeed, OCR Deputy Director Jessica Rich said, “We are reviewing these allegations and will respond to them as appropriate.
If we find that any of these outlets engaged in any conduct that violates the Hatch law, we will take appropriate actions, including criminal prosecution.
“The OCR’s statement also referenced the news media, which is currently investigating whether the Justice’s Department is engaging in criminal prosecution of the AP.
The OCCRP’s statement said, “[A]ny individual who, in the course of a journalist’s reporting, deliberately and intentionally misleads the public, knowingly violates a law, or engages in conduct that is intended to influence the public or that is likely to influence a future decision in any way, is guilty of a crime and must be held accountable.”
The DOJ has not issued any criminal charges against The Wall Times, The New Post, The Journal, or the AP for any of their articles.
The White House also declined to comment on the lawsuit or the potential criminal charges.
