I’ll lay out why, after a quick review of what happened.What Happened in DC in January After attending the March of Life in January of this year, Sandmann and his classmates waited for their bus at the Lincoln Memorial.

Today, @LLinWood and I filed a $275,000,000 lawsuit against NBCUniversal on behalf of Nicholas Sandmann. The facts of the suit show the anti-Trump narrative NBC pushed so hard, attorney Todd V. McMurtry wrote in a tweet Wednesday afternoon. The tweet included a link to the 179-page complaint filed by McMurtry and L. Lin Wood, another attorney representing Sandmann, that accused the network of publishing false and defamatory accusation against Sandmann in its coverage of...

This one is aimed at CNN and it’s even bigger than the one previously filed against the Washington Post.

    Nick Sandmann is back in the news, literally with a vengeance. If there is anyone in the galaxy who doesnt recognize the name, this is the high school teen viciously maligned by the media after a leftwing activist with a film crew attempted to provoke a confrontation with him as he waited for a bus near the Lincoln Memorial. Having committed the crimes of wearing a red MAGA cap and smiling, Sandmann was vilified by the media as a smug beneficiary of white privilege who had bullied a Native American veteran. This turned out to be a lie, of course....

    President Trump on Wednesday cheered the news that attorneys representing a high school student involved in a now-infamous confrontation with a Native American activist last month are suing The Washington Post. The lawsuit, which was filed in federal court in Kentucky, accused the Post of practicing "a modern-day form of McCarthyism" by targeting Nicholas Sandmann and "using its vast financial resources to enter the bully pulpit by publishing a series of false and defamatory print and online articles ... to smear a young boy who was in its view an acceptable casualty in their war against the president." The suit...

    Dear Nick, It now is some ten days since you unintentionally became famous, and you blessedly no longer are the news outside Covington. But I write to tell you that you are not forgotten for many of us whom you made proud. That includes me, an Orthodox Rabbi. Obama once said that, if he had had a son, it would have been a boy like Trayvon Martin. Nicholas, I do not doubt that. Not for a moment. I would rather set the boys of CovCath as role models. Nick, you came with a bunch of other kids from CovCath to...
