A federal judge has tossed out a racketeering lawsuit House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes filed last year against the private investigation firm at the heart of the Trump-Russia saga.

Alexandria, Virginia-based U.S. District Court Judge Liam O'Grady's two-page order made short work of Nunes' suit, which sought $9.9 million in damages from Fusion GPS, its founder Glenn Simpson and a nonprofit watchdog group, Campaign for Accountability.

The judge also signaled that pressing on with the legal battle could result in sanctions against Nunes and his attorney, Steven Biss.

The California GOP lawmaker claimed that he was a victim of "active, coordinated and ongoing corruption, fraud and obstruction of justice" by the defendants that stemmed from his efforts to investigate the firm's role in stoking suspicions about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's ties to Russia during the 2016 campaign.

3. Hmmm. This guy seems to fit the definition of vexatious litigant.

https://legaldictionary.net/vexatious-litigant/

A vexatious litigant is a person who files multiple lawsuits, without legitimate grounds, with the intention of harassing or quieting another person. A vexatious litigant may file lawsuits that are frivolous, burdensome, and/or unwarranted, and the filing of such lawsuits is considered an abuse of the legal system. Vexatious litigants may suffer sanctions as a result of their malicious behavior.

5. Nunes always looks like one of those goons at the bottom of the pissing order who's sent to

Rockford's trailer to rough up Rockford and threaten him.

7. Why is homophobia useful to attack someone?

Nunes is scum, but implying he is a "cocksucker" is nothing more than blatant homophobia!

11. A DEADWOOD aficionado?



sorry, sometimes my humor kicks in, inappropriately...

A couple of years back I got my wrist slapped when replying to a post using "Kochsuckers". I am afraid my humor did NOT kick in that time and my response was, to say the least, inappropriate. Hurt my feelings. And as Ru would say, I "sashayed away". For about a year. Came back under a new identity.

But I do wonder, at times, how so many here at the DU think that slur is acceptable. If you take 98% of the gays, HERE, who participate in said activity (I'm being conservative, here), and 60% of the women HERE (again, a tad conservative, I think, since "I don't know nuttin' bout no straight women" ), throw in the few "straight" men who do the deadly deed , and you probably have a majority of the DU.

Who would want to insult over half of the DU?

Dem dere some trolls, me thinks....

9. Hypocrites. Always bitching about frivolous lawsuits.

I guess it's ok for rich repugs but not poor democrats.
