Those stories about Melania Trump’s ‘racy’ past? Well, she’s about to hit back, hard

Melania Trump has unleashed the Trump legal team on The Daily Mail and other media outlets that have published unflattering and what she calls defamatory articles about her past.

Trump attorney Charles Harder confirmed to Politico in an email that the action won’t be limited to the United Kingdom — where Daily Mail is headquartered.

“Mrs. Trump has placed several news organizations on notice of her legal claims against them, including Daily Mail among others, for making false and defamatory statements about her supposedly having been an ‘escort’ in the 1990s,” Harder said.

“All such statements are 100 [percent] false, highly damaging to her reputation, and personally hurtful. She understands that news media have certain leeway in a presidential campaign, but outright lying about her in this way exceeds all bounds of appropriate news reporting and human decency.”

The article that is the subject of the lawsuit was published last week and questioned Trump’s modeling career, claiming the agency she worked for was actually a call girl operation.

“On the one hand they [the girls] pretended to be models, but they principally earned money as elite escorts,” Daily Mail reported.

Both the Inquisitr and the Bipartisan Report repeated the claims, but later retracted their stories and apologized to Trump. Trump made note of them on Twitter.

Harder most recently successfully sued the Gawker on behalf of his client, Hulk Hogan in his infamous sex tape lawsuit.
