Former U.S. president Donald Trump sued CNN for defamation on Monday, seeking $475 million in punitive damages. Trump is also claiming the network had carried out a “campaign of libel and slander” against him.

Trump claims in his lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, that CNN had used its considerable influence as a leading news organization to defeat him politically.

Trump claims in the 29-page lawsuit that CNN criticized him on multiple occasions and increasingly aired personal attacks in recent months because the network feared that he would run again for president in 2024. The lawsuit also highlights many instances where the network compared Trump to Adolf Hitler and took many other shots to defame the former president.

“As a part of its concerted effort to tilt the political balance to the left, CNN has tried to taint the Plaintiff with a series of ever-more scandalous, false, and defamatory labels of ‘racist,’ ‘Russian lackey,’ ‘insurrectionist,’ and ultimately ‘Hitler,'” the lawsuit claims.

In 2020, his re-election campaign sued The New York Times and The Washington Post over opinion articles that linked Mr. Trump to Russian interference in American elections. His suit against The New York Times was dismissed, but the suit involving The Washington Post is still pending.

As of today, CNN has decline to comment.
