I'm not so sure. Popehat has been covering this a bit here and there on the podcast "All the President's lawyers". His view is that Wohl is tiptoeing his way up to big boy felony crimes, but hasn't quite reached it yet, excluding his pending criminal action for his prior career as a financial grifter.

He has engaged in textbook defamation and slander, but most politicians aren't going to be willing to pursue it because of The Streisand effect. Maybe a case could be made for some form of fraud, but someone like Wohl is small potatoes in a world full of criminals. His high profile may be his undoing soon enough if he keeps this up.

More likely he will have to back-burner this kind of stuff as his criminal trial for ripping off investors starts up. It's going to be an open and shut case, by all appearances.
