CNN Committed a Federal Felony When Threatening a Reddit User

This has not been a good summer for CNN. CNN committed a federal felony when threatening a Reddit user. Though CNN did not identify the Reddit user who created the Trump-CNN wrestling video, this was only because he promised not to do it again. Andrew Kaczynski of CNN went on to say,  “CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.”

This, ladies and gentlemen, is extortion. CNN threatened to dox him.

Of course Julian Assange and Mike Cernovich were all over this as soon as it happened.

The only thing is, this is actually worse than Julian Assange suggested. It could be a federal felony.

More, per Levon:

18 U.S. Code § 241 – Conspiracy against rights.

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or

If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—

They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

CNN continues to fail on so many levels. Now they are threatening to release someone’s identity who has conflicting views with them. At the very least, this guy is going to get PAID by CNN.
