WTFery…with Nunes

Rep. Devin Nunes filed a defamation lawsuit against CNN in federal court on Tuesday in which he is seeking $435,350,000 in damages.

The California Republican alleges that CNN – which the lawsuit describes as “the mother of fake news” – published a “demonstrably false hit piece” on him when it reported on Nov. 22 that a lawyer for Lev Parnas, an indicted associate of President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, said his client was willing to testify that Nunes met with last year with a former Ukrainian prosecutor in Vienna in an effort to get dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.

In the 47-page filing, Nunes says he never traveled to Austria in 2018 and that he never met with or spoke to Viktor Shokin, the former prosecutor. The lawsuit says that during the time Parnas claimed Nunes was in Vienna, the congressman was actually in Libya and Malta. Pictures from those trips are included in the filing.

Shokin also denied meeting with Nunes after the CNN report.

Nunes’ lawsuit alleges that “CNN harbors an institutional hatred, extreme bias, spite and ill-will towards Plaintiff, the GOP and President Trump, going back many years.” And it claims that CNN filed the story about Parnas’ allegations “in retaliation and reprisal” for Nunes’ “defense of President Trump at the impeachment inquiry.”

The lawsuit also disputes CNN’s reporting that Nunes spoke with Parnas around the time of his alleged trip to Vienna (Nov. 30 to Dec. 3). But phone records released Tuesday in the draft impeachment report from three House committees showed Nunes and Parnas exchanged several calls on April 12, including one that last more than eight minutes.

Parnas’ attorney Edward MacMahon told USA TODAY that the two discussed investigations into corruption in Ukraine.

During an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Tuesday night, Nunes said “it’s possible” he spoke with Parnas.

“I haven’t gone through all my phone records. I don’t really recall that name. I remember the name now because he’s been indicted,” he said. “I’ll go back and check all my records but it seems very unlikely that I would be taking calls from random people.”

Nunes is one of the more litigious members of Congress. In 2018, he sued the McClatchy newspaper company for $150 million over a Fresno Bee report on a winery that Nunes has a stake in allegedly hosting a work function that included prostitutes and cocaine.

Last month, he filed a lawsuit against Esquire magazine’s publisher Hearst and reporter Ryan Lizza for an article about his family farm moving to Iowa in 2007.

In March, he filed a $250 million lawsuit against Twitter, accusing the social media company of burying conservative content. In that lawsuit, he also named as defendants two parody accounts based on mocking him: Devin Nunes’ Cow and Devin Nunes’ Mom.

When Nunes’ filed the lawsuit, the Devin Nunes’ Cow account had less than 2,000 followers. It now has more than 675,000

This is so typical of GOP fake outrage. They are literally attacking Biden’s son, and have often gone after Chelsea Clinton; Prof. Karlan name-dropped Barron, but the very clever comment was about Trump’s tyrannical tendencies, not an attack on his son at all.

As home-spun as T could make it…US…you know U.S.A! :exploding_head:

After getting laughed off a continent, Trump was caught on mic chortling to himself about his Trudeau attack of “two-faced” and cancelling the press conference.

He really is that childish. And he probably was purposely overheard.

No need to turn the volume up on KellyAnne, but suffice it to say she is spewing…and the R partyline is to bash what ‘elites’ the legal professors are and how they look down on you (T’s voters)

Such is the state of voices that will and keep emanating from and around the WH…spew, bile, incenciary barbs…awful.

Nunes on his network …can’t quite put my finger on it. Perhaps he just deserves having the book thrown at him.

Obfuscation - making verifiably false statements - perjurous statements - throwing chum - willful ignorance - plausibly deniable.

But wait, he is just mouthing off…not one single word has to be true. Just blather.

So this is from January of 2018. To put the stupid toilet thing in perspective, here is the time Trump called for the abolition of birth.

Trump is proposing to cut $8.5B from the Education Dept, seeking to eliminate after-school programs, teacher training & grants for other school needs while creating a $5B program to help children attend private schools, further enriching their owners.

Before issuing his own condolences, the president channeled the Saudi king’s, and avoided any discussion of the hard questions about why the U.S. is training Saudi officers.

Unfortunate set of circumstances which all stems from power adheres to power, money wants more money and there is no guilt in our world view. Just mercenary territory.
