BREAKING: New York Times Responds to Trump Lawsuit Threat

(Before It's News)

The New York Times has responded to Donald Trump’s threat of a defamation suit, which he claims is in response to their story of multiple women accusing him of sexual assault. The NYT response can be seen here:

The bulk of the Times’ argument can be found in the second paragraph, which is just awesome:

The essence of a libel claim, of course, is the protection of one’s reputation. Mr. Trump has bragged about his non-consentual sexual touching of women. He has bragged about intruding on beauty pageant contestants in their dressing rooms. He acquiesced to a radio host’s request to discuss Mr. Trump’s own daughter as a “piece of ass.” Multiple women not mentioned in our article have publicly come forward to report on Mr. Trump’s unwanted advances. Nothing in our article has had the slightest affect on the reputation that Mr. Trump, through his own words and actions, has already created for himself.

If Trump follows through with the suit (which is in doubt), then he’s going to have a hell of a time refuting that.
