Donald Trump’s reelection campaign filed a lawsuit against The New York Times Wednesday alleging it falsely spread a conspiracy theory tying the president to Russia.

The campaign claims the newspaper intentionally committed libel when it reported the Trump team made a deal with Russian President Vladimir Putin and his regime to help him win the 2016 election.

‘Today the President’s re-election campaign filed suit against the New York Times for falsely stating the campaign had an ‘overarching deal’ with ‘Vladimir Putin’s oligarchy’ to ‘help the campaign against Hillary Clinton’ in exchange for ‘a new pro-Russian foreign policy, starting with relief from … economic sanctions,’ the campaign’s Senior Legal Advisor Jenna Ellis said in a statement.

She also claimed the reports from the Times ‘are 100 percent false and defamatory.’

‘The complaint alleges The Times was aware of the falsity at the time it published them, but did so for the intentional purpose of hurting the campaign, while misleading its own readers in the process,’ she continued.
