PALM BEACH, FL – Former President Donald Trump has threatened the Pulitzer Prize Board with a lawsuit if they refuse to rescind awards they gave to the New York Times and Washington Post in 2018 for coverage of the alleged collusion between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.

Trump issued a letter on May 27 to Pulitzer administrator Marjorie Miller – his third time reaching out with a demand to have the awards revoked – noting that the prizes were awarded based on falsehoods that have blemished his reputation.

“There is no dispute that the Pulitzer Board’s award to those media outlets was based on false and fabricated information that they published,” Trump’s letter read. “The continuing publication and recognition of the prizes on the Board’s website is a distortion of fact and a personal defamation that will result in the filing of litigation if the Board cannot be persuaded to do the right thing on its own.”

Trump went on to refer to recently unearthed evidence and told the Pulitzer Prize Board to keep track of the trial of Michael Sussmann, who was accused of lying to FBI agents about his connection to the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and was possibly responsible for influencing the FBI’s decision to initiate the Trump-Russia investigation.

Sussmann was acquitted by a jury Tuesday of lying to the FBI. However, during the trial it was revealed that Hillary Clinton had personally approved the dissemination of materials that purported a connection between Trump and Russia, allegations that have since been debunked.

Trump insisted that the Times and the Post had not engaged in “even a modicum of journalistic investigation” into the accusations of collusion, or they would have realized that the Clinton campaign’s “shameful smears” were untrue.

“Together with the publications that have obsessively promulgated disgustingly false attacks against me, you have done all you can to destroy my reputation,” Trump said. “How do I get my reputation back?”
