I agree lawsuit threats should be used very sparingly, but "he's a paid Kremlin agent" or "he was almost disbarred" is in that area for me.

I don't believe you: if I publicly spread the claim to large numbers that you are a pedophile, anyone would feel pressured to sue over it.

Right. For instance, if someone w/few followers tweeted "SAM PRITCHARD IS A PEDOPHILE" & I RT'd it, you'd probably understand better.

Record seems pretty clear that the reporting was very well-received around the world. And "McCarthyism" = baseless smears of Kremlin agent.

By that reasoning, standing up in public and saying "Donald Trump should be arrested" is an incitement to violence.

Right, the fact that he doesn't have a platform to create reputational injury sufficient to justify a lawsuit is why I wouldn't bother suing

Que as elites temem o provável resultado de uma eleição (que a maioria quer) não é uma boa razão para evitá-los.

I explicitly told I wouldn't sue because what he did wasn't consequential enough to warrant it. But yeah: defamatory lies are wrong

That's a vile thing to do. I think he'd have to encourage actual violence before it fell within Brandenburg's "incitement" exception.

Using military for domestic politics is very sensitive in Brazil. Military - working with US - overthrew Govt in 1964 & ruled for 21 years.

Under Brandenburg, incitement to violence can be prohibited: just very narrowly defined. Saying to a mob: "let's burn down this house!"

Yeah, I've always jaywalked to court & turned in briefs late & in excess of page limits, which violate rules. But have never been sanctioned
