In the column, the author argued that Trump’s cabinet should have been arrested in the Robert Mueller report for seeking illegal foreign assistance. One of the quotes read:
“[Trump’s campaign] assessed the potential risks and benefits of again seeking Russia’s help in 2020 and has decided to leave that option on the table.”
Trump’s lawsuit alleges that CNN is “extremely biased” against, referencing that:
“…93% of CNN stories about the president’s first 100 days in office were negative.”

“In fact, the Campaign has repeatedly and openly disclaimed any intention to seek Russian involvement in the 2020 election.”
