Brandon Straka, head of the #WalkAway Campaign, filed a defamation lawsuit on Friday against MSNBC, Chris Hayes, and Ari Melber over their “untruthful reporting” on the details of his involvement during the events of January 6 on Capitol Hill.

On Twitter, Straka wrote, “Today I filed a defamation lawsuit against MSNBC, Chris Hayes, & Ari Melber. I’m fighting back on behalf of every American who’s lives have been irreparably harmed by the duplicitous mainstream media.” Straka linked to a press release with the full details of the suit.

According to the press release, “The suit seeks relief for Hayes’ and Melber’s grievously false statements about Mr. Straka’s conduct and ‘involvement’ with the events of January 6th.”

Straka was arrested on January 25 by the FBI in Omaha, Nebraska on felony disorderly conduct charges, which were then reduced to a Class B misdemeanor of disorderly conduct, to which Straka pleaded guilty. Straka’s suit read that MSNBC produced “egregiously malicious and untruthful reporting about the details of his misdemeanor charge.” 

On January 6, Straka made a one-hour video where he personally dissected the events of the day and nowhere in the FBI affidavit did it indicate that Straka himself went into the Capitol building.
