Eric Trump threatened to file a lawsuit over the ‘Burner Phone’ report

Eric Trump threatened to file a lawsuit over the 'Burner Phone' report

It did not claim those two people handled burner phones themselves. Citing The Palmer Report’s tweet, Eric Trump wrote: “Well here is one outlet I can sue for defamation. This will be fun.” “I’m an incredibly honest clean guy — unlike Hunter, no drugs, healthy lifestyle, not the ‘burner phone type,” Trump tweeted, referring to President Joe Biden’s son Hunter and his previous struggles with addiction. Trump also appeared to referring to a New York Post article about Biden that described the purchase of a burner phone.

Eric Trump threatened to sue a website for defamation after it claimed he used burner phones to connect with pro-Donald Trump event organisers in the weeks leading up to January 6. After a claim made in the aftermath of a Rolling Stone article purporting to explain the events leading up to the insurgency on January 6, Trump, the second son of former President Donald Trump, threatened The Palmer Report with legal action. The Palmer Report claimed in a tweet that Eric and Lara Trump “reportedly used burner phones to speak with January 6th organisers,” calling this “something you do in a criminal scheme.” While the Rolling Stone report mentioned the usage of burner phones, which are disposable phones intended to prevent being traced, it also stated that they were used by others to contact people like Eric and Lara Trump.

The Palmer Report is a left-leaning outlet that has frequently been characterized as unreliable. Rolling Stone reported on Wednesday that several of the people who had organized the pro-Trump, “Stop the Steal” rally near the White House on January 6 used burner phones to communicate with senior members of Donald Trump’s team beforehand. The outlet reported, citing three unnamed sources, that Kylie Kremer, an official in the “March for Trump” group that helped organize the rally, instructed an aide to collect three burner phones prior to the rally and used one of the phones to speak to Eric Trump, Lara Trump, and former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. Representatives for Donald Trump did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
