Nunes Seethes at CNN Over Claim He Met with Ukrainians for ‘Dirt’ on Biden

Nunes is fuming, and torching the fake news media as he goes.

Now that public impeachment hearings are finished, (or at least that’s the impression the Democrats gave us this week), it is apparently time for a new sort of conflict between the left and the right.

This one looks destined to appear in the press, as the evidence and antics of the last two weeks will go on trail in the court of public opinion.  At the forefront of the Democratic media infantry is CNN, who this week reported that Devin Nunes, ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, himself traveled to Europe in December of 2018 to meet with Ukrainian sources to gather alleged “dirt” on Joe Biden and/or his son Hunter.

Nunes has denied any wrongdoing, and has done so emphatically.

House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence ranking member Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) intends to file lawsuits against both CNN and the Daily Beast over fake hit pieces the outlets have published about him in recent days, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.

Two pieces recently published in both outlets–one from Daily Beast earlier this week, and one from CNN published late Friday–alleged that the Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, who is now indicted on unrelated charges, helped Nunes with a variety of matters when digging into Ukrainian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election on behalf of Democrats.

Nunes’ statement was heavy.

“These demonstrably false and scandalous stories published by the Daily Beast and CNN are the perfect example of defamation and reckless disregard for the truth,” Nunes told Breitbart News late Friday night. “Some political operative offered these fake stories to at least five different media outlets before finding someone irresponsible enough to publish them. I look forward to prosecuting these cases, including the media outlets, as well as the sources of their fake stories, to the fullest extent of the law. I intend to hold the Daily Beast and CNN accountable for their actions. They will find themselves in court soon after Thanksgiving.”

Then came this exchange, in which Nunes is practically sneering at a CNN reporter.

The Republican Representative still wasn’t done yet, however.
