Ted Cruz lays out possible legal case for Reddit GIF-maker and CNN is NOT going to like it

Senator Ted Cruz speculated that CNN may have committed a crime when it appeared to threaten the Reddit user who created the Trump wrestling CNN video.

The Texas lawmaker laid out the case in a series of tweets Wednesday, citing Georgia and New York state laws to question if the network  could be found guilty of ‘”extortion”or “coercion.”

Cruz noted that CNN’s actions could be a violation of Georgia law, as the company’s headquarters are located in Atlanta.

CNN sparked a social media firestorm after it announced that it had discovered the identity of the Reddit user who had created the video. The network claimed it would not reveal the name of the “private citizen” but that was contingent on his promise that he was “not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again.”

The backlash caused CNN to respond but it announced that it was standing by its story and that it had not threatened the social media user.

Cruz tweeted again later, noting another law that may have been broken by CNN.

The Texas senator and former Republican presidential candidate, is a graduate of Harvard Law School and served as solicitor general for the state of Texas. He also taught Supreme Court litigation as a former adjunct professor at the University of Texas School of Law.
