This comes under the heading of “we’ll do our job, you do yours.” The Trump campaign has sent a letter to television producers calling into question the credibility of some Democrats who appear as on-air guests. The letter, from Tim Murtaugh, the director of communications for the campaign lists several Democrats who have said they was collusion between Trump and the Russians.
The list is nothing short of an effort to blacklist and silence Trump critics. CNN invited one of those mentioned to be an on-air guest.
From Deadline Hollywood: “
“[Eric] Swalwell tweeted his response to the memo, advising Team Trump: “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.”
“Later on Monday, when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer had Swalwell on his program despite Trump’s best effort, Swalwell spit in the preident’s eye. “if he believes I”m not being truthful, or the other persons aren’t being truthful, then sue us,” said the lawkamer, who is mulling a 2020 White House run. “I feel very comfortable that he would not win that case, just as he has lost most of the cases he has brought to court.”
