Devin Nunes Files $435 Million Defamation Lawsuit Against CNN Over ‘Demonstrably False’ Ukraine Story

Rep. Devin Nunes walks away from a meeting with House GOP members, on Capitol Hill January 30, 2018 in Washington, DC.

Ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, who emerged as a central figure in the televised hearings for President Donald Trump‘s impeachment inquiry, has followed through on his promise to file a lawsuit against CNN for a story published which alleged he had shady dealings with a Ukrainian prosecutor.

According to The Washington Examiner, the lawsuit is primarily in response to a story CNN published last month that was titled “Giuliani associate willing to tell Congress Nunes met with ex-Ukrainian official to get dirt on Biden.” The story involved a claim made by lawyer Joseph Bondy — who represented Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas — that Nunes’ intended goal of the alleged meeting was to assist in the process of digging up damaging political information on former Vice President Joe Biden.
