First, a reminder from December 2022:
Brandon Straka filed a defamation suit against MSNBC, Chris Hayes, and Ari Melber today and stated this is just the “first in a strategic string of lawsuits” he will be filing against various media outlets and individuals for egregiously malicious and untruthful reporting about the details of his misdemeanor charge related to the 8 minutes Mr. Straka spent outside the Capitol shooting a video to document what was happening.
The suit seeks relief for Hayes’ and Melber’s grievously false statements about Mr. Straka’s conduct and “involvement” with the events of January 6th. On his prime time show All in with Chris Hayes , Hayes stated “We got a guy [showing video of Brandon Straka] who was there, who was involved in the lead up to the insurrection…who breaks into the Capitol”.
Brandon Straka never entered the Capitol on January 6th, and was never accused of or charged with any act of violence, vandalism, theft, or destruction. Straka’s Statement of Offense does not indicate that he gave a directive to encourage any act of violence or assault. This was a pure fabrication created by MSNBC.
And here’s the result.

“The material challenged in the plaintiff’s complaint cannot be understood by a reasonable person as anything but substantially, if not literally, true. The differences between the statements NBC… & the admissions Straka made in his criminal case are slight if not nonexistent” https://t.co/WRra0SaZrq

Can’t wait for Brandon Straka NOT to update his followers about this, and continue to solicit endless donations for “legal fees,” as he’s been doing for years now.
