(RepublicanWire.org) – It’s no secret Hillary Clinton is not very popular in America. The failed 2016 presidential candidate and former secretary of state under Obama has recently come under fire for alleged wrongdoing by her campaign in 2016. Clinton recently made a veiled threat against Fox News because they reported on the situation and now, one of the network’s biggest stars has hit back.
During a speech at the New York Democrat Convention on February 17, Hillary accused Fox News of lying about her. She claimed they were getting “close to actual malice in their attacks.” Actual malice is the threshold a public figure must meet to prove something said about them is defamation.
She’s accused of having hired a tech firm to infiltrate the servers at Trump Tower.
Later that evening, Fox News’ Sean Hannity discussed the former first lady’s remarks and he couldn’t contain his excitement. He pointed out Hillary would have to provide depositions and documents during the discovery phase of the lawsuit. “Bring it on,” he said. The Fox host claimed he quoted exactly what was in a legal filing when he discussed the hacking allegations against her.
If Hillary were to sue Fox News, she would be put under a microscope during discovery. She would have to prove what the news organization said was a lie AND it knowingly printed those lies with the intention of causing her damage. In other words, a lot of dirt could be spilled.
