Fux Noise: Devin Nunes sues CNN for $435M over 'false and defamatory' Ukraine story

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., sued CNN for defamation on Tuesday, accusing the cable network of publishing a “demonstrably false hit piece” about him amid his high-profile opposition to the Trump impeachment inquiry.

The 47-page lawsuit, filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, accuses the liberal network of publishing “numerous egregiously false and defamatory” statements about Nunes on Nov. 22, 2019 when journalist Vicky Ward reported claims that Nunes met with Ukranian prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, in Vienna in 2018 to dig "up dirt" on Hunter and Joe Biden.

Nunes, who has been leading GOP opposition to the House Democratic impeachment inquiry in the House Intelligence Committee, says he “did not go to Vienna or anywhere else in Austria in 2018” and “has never met” Shokin.

“CNN is the mother of fake news. It is the least trusted name. CNN is eroding the fabric of America, proselytizing, sowing distrust and disharmony. It must be held accountable,” the lawsuit, obtained by Fox News, states.

You're going to look like an even bigger shithead when all is said and done Devin.

1. Devin. Buddy. I realize that it's tough for cows to do legal research,

but please have some at least marginally-literate human read New York Times v. Sullivan to you.

2. I have a funny feeling that the lawyers at CNN can't wait to depose Devin Nunes

...and that he will drop the suit before it goes that far.

I think Devin Nunes will be resigning in next few months and that a lot of bad things are coming his way....

4. He's just like trump, tying everything up in litigation.

Karma, where are you? I’ve been waiting patiently. I hope CNN blows him out of the water.

7. Probably the orange one told Nunes

to sue. It's definitely right out of Hair $hitler's play book.

8. i hope his lawyers are getting paid up front..........

you would think a member of congress would understand what discovery is and that you really shouldn't enter into discovery when you know damn well you'll be forcing yourself to reveal incriminating evidence.

9. I don't know a single self-respecting attorney who would use this language in a pleading they signed

“CNN is the mother of fake news. It is the least trusted name. CNN is eroding the fabric of America, proselytizing, sowing distrust and disharmony. It must be held accountable."

Unbelievable.

Edit: this is the weirdest complaint I may have ever read. It includes Parnas' mugshot and Nunes' biographical narrative that's completely irrelevant to the claim. Do you care that he's of Portuguese descent ... He and his wife have three daughters ... He worked on a farm? No? Neither will the judge.

15. IKR?

This won't get very far. But this complaint wasn't intended for the court. It's for the FOX News audience.

I'm just amazed he found lawyers willing to sign this crap.

12. Ridiculous - high cost law suits are a tactic - intimidate via costs of law suits. So where is he

getting the $$ to fund these suits. Both a rhetorical and a real question.

13. Look at Nunes' & Giuliani's call logs, they were using AT&T, the #1 telcom collaborator of the NSA.

.

Of course the Intelligence Community knew what was going on, they were getting direct feeds. 😂
