Devin Nunes has had enough and he is fighting back. He waited patiently while Mueller completed his work, while he was getting trashed every day in the media and basically called a traitor.
Well, the media was wrong - they were played by people with malicious intentions and so now the media is about to learn that for each and every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. From Fox News:
House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes filed a $150 million lawsuit in Virginia state court against The McClatchy Company and others on Monday, alleging that one of the news agency’s reporters conspired with a political operative to derail Nunes’ oversight work into the Hillary Clinton campaign and Russian election interference.
The filing, obtained by Fox News, came a day after Nunes, R-Calif., revealed he would send eight criminal referrals to the Justice Department this week concerning purported surveillance abuses by federal authorities during the Russia probe, false statements to Congress and other matters.
In March, Nunes filed a similar $250 million lawsuit alleging defamation against Twitter and one of its users, Republican consultant Liz Mair. In Monday’s complaint, Nunes again named Mair as a co-defendant, charging this time that she conspired with McClatchy reporter MacKenzie Mays to spread a variety of untruthful and misleading smears — including that Nunes “was involved with cocaine and underage prostitutes” — online and in print.
“[A] couple of reporters there were the biggest perpetrators of the Russia hoax,” Nunes said. “And don’t forget — they also targeted the National Rifle Association.
They targeted a lawyer, Cleta Mitchell. So, all of this was done in concert while they were slandering and attacking me, defaming me, attacking Republicans.
And the whole time, they were getting this information from someone. And so part of this lawsuit is not only do they need to retract everything they did against me, but they also need to come clean with the American people. Retract all of their fake news stories. And so this is part of the broader clean-up.”
“Remember a few weeks ago, I filed against Twitter — that they were censoring conservatives,” he continued. “McClatchy is one of the biggest offenders of this. But we’re coming after the rest of them.
“I think people are just beginning to wake up now. I’m serious. I’m coming to clean up all of the mess. So, if you’re out there and you lied, and you defamed, we’re going to come after you.”
