Larry Klayman is still reeling from his embarrassing appearance on CNN with host Don Lemon this week, and in a WorldNetDaily interview today says that he may file a defamation lawsuit against the network, charging that the interview was a set up by President Obama, the Clintons and the Democratic National Committee.
Klayman told birther leader and WND correspondent Jerome Corsi that Lemon should be fired for being a “shill” for the DNC and “a well-known ultra-leftist African-American political activist who pursues a LGBT sexual agenda.”
When CNN preceded an interview with legal activist Larry Klayman last night with an unflattering profile and then removed him from the screen when the dialogue got heated, powers much higher than the cable news network were wielding influence, charges Klayman.
“What CNN did to me yesterday was a hit piece orchestrated against me by the Obama White House with the direct involvement of the Democratic National Committee in an attempt to discredit me and to turn the public against Judge Leon’s court decision that the NSA is violating Fourth Amendment rights,” Klayman told WND in a telephone interview.
“This was a Clinton thing as much as it was an Obama thing,” he said.
The attorney told WND Wednesday he believes the DNC “used Lemon as a shill.”
“Obama and the Clintons know this was a key decision, and they don’t want us to have any oxygen,” he said. “The DNC wants to cut me down to size.”
He said what the Obama administration has done with the NSA “is perhaps the worst violation of constitutional rights in America history.”
Klayman compared Lemon’s decision to remove him from the screen in the middle of an interview to former MSNBC host Martin Bashir’s slur of Gov. Sarah Palin, which got Bashir fired.
“What Lemon did was classless and sleazy,” Klayman said.
“Lemon is a well-known ultra-leftist African-American political activist who pursues a LGBT sexual agenda,” he said.
Klayman asserted CNN should fire Lemon, just as MSNBC fired Bashir.
“The entire segment with me yesterday was structured as a hit piece, designed to bring in CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin whose job was to call me a lunatic even though he appeared not to have read Judge Leon’s decision,” Klayman said.
Klayman said he was considering filing a defamation lawsuit against CNN, alleging the network had conspired to ruin his reputation with an interview set up to ambush him on air and marginalize him and his ongoing litigation against the NSA.
