GOP Rep. Devin Nunes Sues CNN over Story About Nunes’s Ukraine Meeting

HeadlineDec 05, 2019

In impeachment related news, California Republican Congressmember Devin Nunes has sued CNN for over $400 million, after CNN published a story detailing how Nunes, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, traveled to Vienna and met with a former Ukrainian prosecutor to discuss digging up dirt on the Bidens last year. Nunes claims this report is false. CNN had repeatedly asked Nunes to comment on the story before it was published, but he had refused to do so. The report implicates Nunes in the Trump administration’s broader effort to pressure the Ukrainians to investigate Trump’s political rivals, the Bidens, which is at the center of the ongoing impeachment inquiry.
