The TrumperTantrum might have some legal consequences for the Donaldinator as GOP activist Cheri Jacobus is threatening to sue if he doesn’t stop lying about their professional interactions!

Here’s Politico on it:

The script has been flipped on Donald Trump.

Trump and his team are well known for threatening lawsuits, but on Thursday, the celebrity mogul and his campaign manager were the ones on the receiving end of a legal threat.

Via her lawyer, Republican strategist Cheri Jacobus sent a letter warning the pair to cease and desist from making “false and defamatory” statements about her or face legal action.

The letter, obtained by POLITICO, refers to statements made by Trump and campaign manager Corey Lewandowski accusing Jacobus of holding an anti-Trump grudge because she tried unsuccessfully to get a job on his campaign.

Jacobus’s letter–sent by lawyer Bruce Barket of Barket, Marion, Epstein & Kearon in New York–says the pair are misrepresenting what happened. According to the letter, it was an employee of Trump who first reached out to Jacobus to ask if he she was interested in a position on the campaign.

“By impugning Ms. Jacobus’s status as an objective and serious political commentator, your live-television statements to Morning Joe and follow-up ‘Tweets’ were per se defamatory because they painted her as petty and biased in a profession permitting neither,” states the letter, which concludes, “Any violation of this cease-and-desist demand will be treated in Court accordingly.”

Neither Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, nor a Trump campaign spokeswoman responded to requests for comment.

This is the tweet they’re referring to:

But she says this is not what happened, and the lie about her is hurting her professionally.

She then provided this evidence, among others, to blogger Jeff Dunetz:

Whatever you think of the merits of the case, which look pretty good, what kind of guy will just blithely lie like that just to protect his own fragile ego? I really find it hard to trust him when he does stuff like this…
