Natasha Bertrand CNN
In 2017 Natasha appeared in a panel discussion on a now-refuted CNN report where she noted that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was wiretapped and linked him to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application filed against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, who she alleged was working as a “liaison” with Manafort, saying “these pieces are all starting to come together and it’s really alarming.”
Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple wrote; “Not so alarming, as it turned out. For one, CNN was wrong about the Manafort wiretapping story, as made clear in the report from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz. The network added a weaselly editor’s note to the Manafort story as a means of wishing away the bad news. For another, the Horowitz report made clear that the FBI made numerous omissions and errors in the FISA process and still secured authorizations.”

Natasha Bertrand Sued
In November 2019 Kash Patel, a senior counterterrorism director on the White House National Security Council, sued politico and Natasha Bertrand for the stories they published about him. He claimed the outlet accused him of “lying, deceit and unethical conduct” and fueling President Donald Trump’s belief in Ukraine theories.
The suit was about the articles Natasha wrote; in the first article she stated that Patel was “among those passing negative information about Ukraine to President Donald Trump earlier this year, fueling the president’s belief that Ukraine was brimming with corruption and interfered in the 2016 election on behalf of Democrats.” The second article Patel objects to reported he “misrepresented himself” in order to claim that he, not Alexander Vindman, was the NSC’s top Ukraine expert.
Natasha based her stories on sources who informed her of the closed-door depositions Vindman and Fiona Hill, the former senior director for European and Russian Affairs, provided to Congress.
In a statement, politico spokesman Brad Dayspring said; “This lawsuit is high on bombast and low on merit. It is unserious and is a public relations tactic designed to intimidate journalists and media organizations from doing their job.”
