2020 ELECTION/LAWSUIT: “A federal judge has thrown out a $475m (£369m) defamation lawsuit brought by Donald Trump against CNN for allegedly likening him to Adolf Hitler.

The US cable network described Mr Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that the 2020 presidential election had been stolen from him as the ‘Big Lie’.

Mr Trump argued the phrase referred to a Nazi propaganda campaign used to justify the persecution of Jews.

US District Judge Raag Singhal ruled CNN’s comments were not defamatory.”
