Trump Campaign Sends TV Producers Memo Accusing Dems of Making ‘Outlandish’ Claims on Air

The Trump campaign sent a scathing memo to major TV news producers Monday calling on networks to consider dropping certain prominent Democrats as guests for “lying to the American people” about the Mueller report, according to a tweet from ABC reporter Meridith McGraw. After falsely claiming that Attorney General Barr’s four-page summary of Mueller’s findings can only be viewed as “a total and complete vindication of President Trump,” the memo accused prominent Democrats of “lying to the American people by vigorously and repeatedly claiming there was evidence of collusion.” The memo calls out Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CA); Reps. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), and Eric Swalwell (D-CA); DNC Chairman Tom Perez; and former CIA director John Brennan, and advises networks to consider if their past “outrageous and unsupported claims” merit further appearances. Swalwell quickly fired back on Twitter, writing: “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.”
