Donald Trump is suing the Plutzer board for awarding a prize to journalists who wrote about Russian involvement with the 2016 Presidential election.
The 30-page complaint names not just the Pulitzer Prize Board, but also its individual members as defendants. Trump begins by providing background context of his presidential candidacy whereby he casts himself as a “disruptive political adversary” to existing government and media. He claims that the resulting media coverage “ginned up an absurdly false and defamatory narrative” regarding collusion with Vladimir Putin, at the core of which was the “Steele Dossier.”
Trump alleges that the Times and the Post led national coverage against him and “irrefutably lied” to the American people, who then fell for the “disgustingly fake narrative that Trump was a Russian asset.” The former president says that fueled by these false media reports, “partisan elements affiliated with the Clinton Campaign peddled their lies to malefactors within law enforcement,” which then “manipulated FISA court[s],” and fueled the “sham investigation” against him which culminated in the Mueller investigation. – Law & Crime
