By Cheryl Chumley. Donald Trump and his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, have been told via lawyer letter to stop making “false and defamatory” statements about Republican strategist Cheri Jacobus, or face the legal consequences.
Politico, which obtained the letter, reported attorney Bruce Barket of Barket, Marion, Epstein & Kearon in New York, said Lewandowski and Trump have falsely painted Jacobus in public statements as holding a grudge against the billionaire businessman because of her supposed failed try to obtain a job on his campaign.
Barket said it was actually one of Trump’s staffers who contacted Jacobus and asked if she was interested in working on the campaign, Politico reported.
His letter states, in part: “By impugning Ms. Jacobus’ status as an objective and serious political commentator, your live-television statements to Morning Joe and follow-up ‘Tweets’ were per se defamatory because they painted her as petty and biased in a profession permitting neither. Any violation of this cease-and-desist demand will be treated in Court accordingly.”
Jacobus gave Politico screenshots of a May 2015 Facebook messaging chat with Jim Dornan, a Republican strategist who at the time was working for Trump, that read: “Would you consider working for us? We need a top notch communications director.” (Read more from “Trump Is Being Threatened With This Major Lawsuit” HERE)

Three white nationalist leaders have banded together to form their own super PAC in support of Trump, even though Trump doesn’t want their support.
The American National Super PAC is funding the robocall effort, which is organized under a separate group called the American Freedom Party. (Read more from “Trump’s Unwelcome Support: White Supremacists” HERE)
