A new report claims multiple media outlets omitted details in stories about an ongoing lawsuit against President Donald Trump, legal action that is spearheaded by David Brock, an anti-Republican ally of Hillary Clinton.

The Washington Free Beacon discusses the lawsuit filed by a group called the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). Brock, who founded the liberal Media Matters website, is CREW's president.

The lawsuit accuses Trump of violating the Constitution as president because his business is accepting payments from foreign governments.

Two new plaintiffs were added to the lawsuit on Monday. According to the Free Beacon, The Washington Post and The New York Times referred to CREW as "a D.C.-based watchdog group" (the Post) and "a legal watchdog group" (The Times).

The stories did not mention that CREW has historically taken aim at conservative groups.

The group that has joined the aforementioned lawsuit, the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC), is a liberal activist organization that has called for people to resist anything Trump does as president.

As the Free Beacon notes, neither the Post nor the Times went into any detail about the ROC.

It was reported last month that Brock suffered a heart attack.
