    I would agree that proving it might be difficult but getting them in court not so much. Trump is known for sueing for no other reason than to have whoever he is sueing lose money to fight off the case. Though claiming you have emails/phone records while not having those things opens up a clear case for them to attack with, so they'd have a much better shot at a libel case than others who tend to sue because a paper or organization wasn't nice to them. Or because they didn't like the facts being printed about them which is also why people fail libel suits.

    I saw that. How did everyone from the Trump administration to the media identify the wrong guy for months at a time? That is mind blowing.
