Tony Podesta Sends Cease And Desist Letter To Fox News’ Tucker Carlson (VIDEO)

There’s an old saying which reads: you always receive the most flack when you’re directly over the target.

Tucker Carlson reported on Monday that he received a  a cease and desist letter over his reporting on the Podesta Group from a lawyer representing Tony Podesta. Carlson’s response was predictable:

“Podesta’s lawyer wasn’t trying to inform us of anything — but to threaten us, to shut down our reporting on his client. One lawyer we talked to earlier today said the Podesta people have used this tactic with others before, it’s common. It’s an effort to use fear to control press coverage.

We’re not intimidated, we have ample evidence from Mueller’s indictment and from a number of confidential sources to paint a pretty clear picture of exactly what the Podesta Group was doing for years here in Washington. We’ll let the facts speak for themselves, and we’re confident the Mueller investigation will be revealing a lot more about his lobbying practices in the near future.”


Here’s the video:


If you ask me, I say let them sue. Then, all of the information they are trying to keep secret will be brought out in open court for the entire world to see, because it then becomes part of the public record. And I doubt the Podestas will risk that, as Tucker will be entitled to discovery, so go ahead and sue.


Note how it isn’t Trump sending cease and desist letters to the press. It’s Tony Podesta. This is so funny – one of the honchos on the Left complaining about how the news is reported and threatening to sue. Al Capone used to send “cease and desist” letters to the Chicago Tribune, but they didn’t do him any good.

This is an open and shut case of Podestas using old KGB (or new FSB) tactics against U.S. media. The Podesta Group may have spent too much time hanging out with, or lobbying for Russian oligarchs as they act the same. If the Podesta Group have nothing to fear, they should chill and stop threats of denying 1st Amendment rights of news organization.
