The Dallas Police Department informed The Daily Caller Monday that there is no police report or investigation into the alleged Twitter assault of Newsweek writer and Dallas resident Kurt Eichenwald.
A Twitter user under the handle “@jew_goldstein” tweeted an image Thursday with flashing colors saying Eichenwald deserved a seizure. Theresa Eichenwald, his wife, responded from his account, “@jew_goldstein This is his wife, you caused a seizure. I have your information and have called the police to report the assault.”
[dcquiz] Kurt said Friday that police are investigating whether this is a federal crime as he said it is a “cross-state assault.” The Dallas Police Department told TheDC that there is no police report from those dates from either Eichenwald and that they cannot have an investigation without one.
The Daily Caller reached out to Eichenwald to ask him if he had filed a police report with the Dallas Police Department on Thursday and Friday, and he repeatedly refused to answer. He eventually said, “I am not interested in explaining to daily caller how the law works.”
Newsweek told The Daily Caller on Friday that they could confirm that what Theresa has said was true. Newsweek’s managing editor Ken Li told TheDC Monday they had no comment about the lack of a police report filed with the Dallas Police Department.
Li had no further comment regarding Eichenwald. “We’re not handling that, you’re going to have to talk to Kurt,” the Newsweek managing editor said.
Kurt Eichenwald is also a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. Vanity Fair has not returned a request for comment.
In the time since TheDC reached out to Eichenwald for comment, the Newsweek writer has uploaded documents in a civil case seeking to get records behind the “@jew_goldstein” Twitter account that allegedly caused his seizure.
