Lakoff Trump Tower Lawsuit

$28,672 of $150,000 goal

Created February 5, 2018
George Lakoff is being targeted by a baseless lawsuit  for exercising his First Amendment rights.  A lawyer who has previously represented Donald Trump has filed this lawsuit on behalf of Irakly “Ike” Kaveladze, one of the eight people who attended a controversial meeting in Trump Tower in June 2016. That meeting is currently being investigated  by the highest levels of the United States government. Any amount you can give to Professor Lakoff’s legal defense fund will help protect freedom and truth.

The lawsuit alleges libel and slander. Professor Lakoff has retained a powerful legal team to vigorously defend against this attack on the First Amendment. Defending yourself from meritless lawsuits can be expensive. So, I’m asking my fellow citizens to give what they can to support his legal defense fund. Any donation you make will help pay legal costs – and protect freedom and truth.

 About Professor Lakoff: After 50 years of teaching cognitive science and linguistics at universities like UC Berkeley and Harvard, he recently retired at the age of 76. He now dedicates himself full-time to helping Democratic activists communicate more powerfully and effectively in these challenging times. You may have seen some of his work on MSNBC, in newspapers , or on social media . He is also the best-selling author of many books, including the "All New Don’t Think of An Elephant" and "Metaphors We Live By."

This is the United States of America. Our freedom to speak the truth and enjoy the rights granted by the First Amendment is sacred. We must never allow our voices to be silenced by deep-pocketed individuals who can bury normal citizens with expensive legal costs.

Please join me in standing up for our cherished American values – freedom, truth, and democracy – at this critical time. Please give what you can – and please share this with your friends and family.
