Will Tim Pool sue NBC News???

Tim Pool is hangry.  Or maybe just angry:


It sounds like he's suggesting he might sue news outlets that say he "helped push" the Seth Rich conspiracy.  Or...maybe he would only sue news outlets if they say he claimed the Seth Rich conspiracy was true?

Truth be told, I don't know what the conditions are that would persuade Tim Pool to sue a news outlet.  But I do know that NBC News wrote about Tim as part of its coverage of the White House social media summit.

NBC News wrote:
Tim Pool, a YouTube personality who has pushed the false conspiracy theory that former Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich leaked hacked emails to WikiLeaks, also plans to attend the event.
So NBC News says Tim Pool pushed the Seth Rich conspiracy.  Are those fighting words?  (Or rather, suing words?)  Stay tuned.  We might found out!

Incidentally, here is the Twitter video that NBC News linked to:


Hey Tim, eat a Snickers.  You get litigious when you're hungry!
