One of Comrade Stupid’s lawyers sent a cease-and-desist letter to Bannon yesterday, telling him to shut his pie hole. Comrade Stupid has done this shit forever life. But these letters only purpose is to scare people who can’t afford a lawyer.
Steve Bannon don’t care. He can afford lawyers.
Public figures can only win defamation lawsuits when they can prove that the defendant lied, the defendant knew they were lying, and the defendant lied anyway.
What about the famous NDA, you say? Well, Bannon was an employee of the US Gubmint, not an employee of Comrade Stupid. With very few exceptions, NDAs do not apply to government employees.
Comrade Stupid also sent a letter to Wolff’s publisher, Henry Holt and Co., demanding it to not release the book. The publisher promptly moved up the release date to this morning. The book is #1 on Amazon’s list of bestsellers. Give Comrade Stupid credit: he knows how to push a product to dominate its market.
Wolff recorded all/many of his 200 interviews. If the recordings accurately match the book’s quotes then Comrade Stupid has no case against Henry Holt and Co., who are probably enjoying the stroll to the bank with their buckets of moolah.
Should Comrade Stupid actually file suit, Bannon’s lawyers will force him to answers questions under oath. Please let this happen. Everyone who lived through Clinton’s preznincy knows what happens if you lie under oath.
