Conservative commentator and former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino announced Tuesday that he has filed a $15 million defamation lawsuit against liberal publication “The Daily Beast.”

“The Daily Beast tried to smear me, and I guess they thought I would just take it. They were wrong,” Bongino said, announcing the suit in an article on his “Bongino Report” website:

“Dan Bongino has filed a $15 million defamation lawsuit against liberal, online publication the Daily Beast after the website refused to retract and correct a false story it posted about him.

“The federal complaint, filed today in the Southern District of Florida calls the Daily Beast a ‘digital assassin owned and controlled by billionaire Clinton-devotees’ and states that the website published an article on Dec 10, 2018 claiming Dan was ‘dropped’ from NRATV when in fact, he did not renew his contract.”

Bongino says:

“The liberal activists inside of many media outlets have gotten away with character assassination for way too long.

“The Daily Beast tried to smear me, and I guess they thought I would just take it. They were wrong.”
