Blogger tvunget til at betale ‘en betragtelig sum’ til Melania Trump i bagvaskelssag

A Maryland blogger has been forced to pay a “substantial sum” to Melania Trump as part of a settlement for a defamation lawsuit over an article containing unsubstantiated claims that the first lady once worked as an escort, her lawyers announced Tuesday.

“I posted an article on August 2, 2016 about Melania Trump that was replete with false and defamatory statements about her,” Webster Tarpley, the 71-year-old blogger, said in a statement by Trump’s attorneys, according to the Washington Post.

Trump’s legal team declined to provide the settlement amount.

Trump on Monday also re-filed a libel lawsuit against the corporation that publishes the Daily Mail’s website, this time in New York, for reporting on the escort rumors and seeks compensatory and punitive damages of at least $150 million.

Det kunne ligne løgnepressen ikke at rapportere om afgørelsen, så sagen kan blive hængende i luften i lang tid.
