(FreedomJournal.org)- Attorneys representing Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have reportedly sent a letter to the Never Trump “conservative” organization, the Lincoln Project after the group paid for billboards to appear in Times Square that made reference to the couple.
Ivanka and Jared, the daughter and son-in-law of President Donald Trump, had lawyers take action after the Lincoln Project published the “false, malicious and defamatory ads” that were displayed in the legendary part of New York City.
“If these billboards are not immediately removed, we will sue you for what will doubtless be enormous compensatory and punitive damages,” the attorneys wrote.
Trump and Kushner’s attorneys referenced a billboard that showed Ivanka Trump smiling next to figures that show some 221,000 Americans and 33,000 New Yorkers dead from COVID-19. The lawyers also specifically referenced another billboard that showed Kushner, who is a senior White House adviser, standing next to body bags. The billboard included a quote from before the pandemic even occurred, implying that both Trump and Kushner didn’t care about the people who died from COVID-19.

The Lincoln Project responded to the letters, seemingly uncaring about their blatant attempt to smear the two White House advisers.
“The level of indignant outrage Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have shown towards The Lincoln Project for exposing their indifference for the more than 223,000 people who have lost their lives due to their reckless mismanagement of COVID-19 is comical,” the supposedly conservative organization responded. “While we truly enjoy living rent free in their heads, their empty threats will not be taken any more seriously than we take Ivanka and Jared.”
So it sounds like the Trumps are about to prepare a lawsuit…
The Lincoln Project said that they found it interesting that the Trump administration has “never had any regard or understanding” of the Constitution and that they are trying to “trample” on their first amendment rights.
“We fully intend on making this civics lesson as painful as possible,” the organization added.
