The Washington Post is now reportedly facing a stunning $3.78 billion defamation lawsuit from Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG).
The Post was charged with waging a years-long crusade against the business, according to TMTG, the parent firm of former President Trump’s Truth Social.
The Post was charged with posing an existential threat for TMTG, causing enormous loss, according to the lawsuit, which was filed late on Saturday in Sarasota County, Florida.
Will Wilkerson, one of TMTG’s original workers, came under the limelight as a result of the litigation after he alleged in a 2022 October Post article that the business had broken security regulations.
Additionally, according to the same article, which included internal papers that Wilkerson provided to the newspaper, Trump may have exerted pressure on executives to transfer shares to his wife.
The complaint claims that the Post misled readers into believing that TMTG executives were criminals and painted the business as being full of corporate misbehavior.
For its part The Washington Post chose not to publicly comment on the allegations.
