From ‘Sue if you must’: Lincoln Project rejects threat over Kushner and Ivanka billboards
Letâ€™s see what happens when a group stands up to bullying.
On Friday, Marc Kasowitz, an attorney who has represented the president against allegations of fraud and sexual assault, wrote to the Lincoln Project, demanding the â€œfalse, malicious and defamatoryâ€ ads be removed, or â€œwe will sue you for what will doubtless be enormous compensatory and punitive damagesâ€.
The Lincoln Project responded that they would not remove the billboards, citing first amendment rights of free speech and the â€œreckless mismanagement of Covid-19â€ by the Trump White House.
In a legal response on Saturday night, attorney Matthew Sanderson told Kasowitz: â€œPlease peddle your scare tactics elsewhere. The Lincoln Project will not be intimidated by such empty bluster â€¦ your clients are no longer Upper East Side socialites, able to sue at the slightest offense to their personal sensitivities.â€
