Conspiracy Theorist Webster Tarpley Reaches Settlement in Melania Slander Lawsuit



Webster Tarpley allegedly represented Melania Trump to have been a prostitute in her native Slovenia. That created a legal problem for him.

Fox News

A Maryland blogger has been forced to pay a “substantial sum” to Melania Trump as part of a settlement for a defamation lawsuit over an article containing unsubstantiated claims that the first lady once worked as an escort, her lawyers announced Tuesday.

“I posted an article on August 2, 2016 about Melania Trump that was replete with false and defamatory statements about her,” Webster Tarpley, the 71-year-old blogger, said in a statement by Trump’s attorneys, according to the Washington Post.

Trump’s legal team declined to provide the settlement amount. Tarpley, of Gaithersburg, didn’t respond to requests from the Washington Post for comment, but his lawyer confirmed a settlement had been reached.

“I acknowledge that these false statements were very harmful and hurtful to Mrs. Trump and her family, and therefore I sincerely apologize to Mrs. Trump, her son, her husband and her parents for making these false statements,” Trump’s lawyers — in comments attributed to Tarpley — wrote in their statement.

Trump on Monday also re-filed a libel lawsuit against the corporation that publishes the Daily Mail’s website, this time in New York, for reporting on the escort rumors.

Trump had previously filed the lawsuit against Mail Media Inc. in Maryland, but a judge earlier this month ruled the case shouldn’t be filed in Maryland and dismissed it. The lawsuit now filed in New York, where the corporation has offices, seeks compensatory and punitive damages of at least $150 million.

I first read the name Webster Tarpley more than a decade ago when I began to realize the full extent to which the Deep State (including the media) lies to the American people and the world.

It’s disturbing that the Trump family has gone after someone who is so devoted to exposing the truth as he sees it. Tarpley has a right under the First Amendment to speculate about anyone, including Melania, but not to present falsehoods as facts. That’s my amateur lawyer interpretation of this particular case.

Tarpley is suspicious of 9/11, Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, and more. Obviously, he is strongly critical of Donald Trump too.

Heavy has a piece on him, set up in their “5 Fast Facts” format. It appears to be mostly sourced from Tarpley’s entry on Wikipedia.

You can see from the photos of nude Melania online why Tarpley might have believed her to be a prostitute.

  2. Congratulations to her for winning!

    We can look at Melania’s nude photos in several ways.

    1. It’s just skin, what’s the big deal?

    2. Oh, horrors, our First Lady is a slut!

    3. Her body is so perfect, I see her beside Roman and Greek male statues representing the ideal female form.

    I choose #3.

  3. Well,she’s a very beautiful WOMAN that’s for sure,no one can argue that! Hey Mooch,strip off,let’s see what that bulge is..That will stop all the speculation!

  4. Why aren’t the feminists up in arms defending her right to do with her own body whatever she chooses? I’m also glad the bitter old git was called out and sued, we don’t take too kindly to people attacking and lying about them because they are associated with someone that someone else doesn’t like here in England, we have very ridged libel laws.

  5. New York Post is pretty sleazy. Those nude pics would be copyright and I doubt the Jew rag had permission to print them. This goes beyond the “fair use” label that newspapers use to print free images.

    Imagine the lefty rage if naked pics of Hillary or Bill Clinton were published in a newspaper. Neither of them would compare well the beautiful Melania, even when they were the same age.

  6. From that heavy dot com link, part of one comment………….
    “Tarpley is a liar, he was pretending to be a populist, when in reality he is a Neo-Bolshevik Trotskyist, he endorsed Hillary and the entire Democratic ticket despite doing pieces on how evil Hillary was, she is a degenerate warmonger who wants war with Russia and supports ISIS. Trump was everything we have been waiting for in a candidate, but because Tarpley SOLD us out he started lying for Hillary, and he lied big league, when he attacked poor Melania with libel we wrote to him to stop, but he didn’t listen, he was more concerned with allying with the Neo-Bolshevik Left than to appease his Populist readership. Tarpley is getting everything he deserves with his lawsuit”
