The impeachment circus that has consumed our nation continues to evolve in ever-stranger and unprecedented ways as of late.
Not only do we have the entire process headed into the House Judiciary now -where a longtime Trump foe Jerry Nadler will again take aim at his former NYC neighbor – but the media’s malfeasant bias has crept into the political process in new and unforgivable ways.
Take, for instance, the case of Devin Nunes, ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, who has been forced to take legal action against CNN and others for their erroneous coverage against him.
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.
Nunes is seeking at least $435,350,000 in compensatory and punitive damages.
The announcement of the suit comes less than 24 hours before the aforementioned Nadler begins the second phase of public hearings on the subject of impeaching Donald Trump.
