SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Meanwhile, the Trump campaign, they're fighting back against the Trump media mob, suing fake news CNN for allegedly pushing malicious Russia fake news and hysteria and complaint filed today specifically cites an article written in June of 2019.

Here with the reaction, Trump 2020 campaign national press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, and former White House press secretary, looks much better out of green, our friend Sean Spicer is back. Kayleigh, let's start with you.

You know, there's a very high bar when it comes to any public figure. You know, you have to show, oh, there was no malice. OKAY, it doesn't matter. The bar is so high. I think the law should change because people get away with slander and smears all the time. Tell us specifically why the campaign thinks it will be successful.

KAYLEIGH MCENANY (TRUMP 2020 CAMPAIGN NATIONAL PRESS SECRETARY): Look, we think it will be successful because there is no denying that CNN, that The Washington Post, that The New York Times have all displayed malicious intent. They knowingly published false information.

I totally agree with you, Sean. The libel laws essentially allow you to slander anyone and libel anyone. And that's why Justice Antonin Scalia said they need to change. But we have to work within the structure we have right now and you cannot go out there and lie, knowingly do so, peddle this Russian collusion narrative and think you can get away with it.

This lawsuit is an effort to hold the fake news accountable. Bottom line.
