JUST IN: Trump Administration in Serious Hot Water Over Blackmail Threat, This Could Get Ugly!

Donald Trump’s war on CNN may have gone a step too far. Trump’s administration threatened to take away CNN’s merger with AT&T and Time Warner should CNN continue to air controversial subject matter pertaining to the Trump administration.

The administration essentially tried to strongarm CNN into airing strictly pro-Trump news, which is blackmail.

Ethics watchdog American Oversight opened up an investigation into the matter and sent the Trump administration a demand for any documents relating to the merger, particularly any documents proving officials used the merger for political reasons.

via American Oversight:

“The idea that the president would subvert antitrust laws to attempt to control the media is a stunning abuse of power.

It not only strikes at the core of our constitutional right to free speech, it also undermines our system of free enterprise,” said American Oversight Executive Director Austin Evers.

“Even if the White House has not contacted DOJ directly to interfere with the merger, Trump’s advisers are clearly trying to influence the outcome.”

American Oversight has a tough road ahead if they plan to pin any charges on the seemingly immune Trump administration. Yes, it’s obvious they broke the law. No, it’s not possible to see justice served.

Welcome to the Trump era.
