Fox News reports:
House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told Fox News Friday that he plans to sue The Washington Post over a report that claimed he went to the White House and told President Trump of purported testimony by a top intelligence official that Moscow is working to reelect the president in November.
The report also claimed that Trump “erupted” at Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire — who is being replaced by Richard Grenell weeks before Maguire’s “acting” tenure limit is reached March 11.
Nunes remarked that the paper will “have an opportunity in federal court in the next couple of weeks to explain who their sources are because I’m going to have to take them to court — because I didn’t go to the White House, I didn’t talk to President Trump.”
Meanwhile this also happened last night:
A federal judge has tossed out a racketeering lawsuit House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes filed last year against the private investigation firm at the heart of the Trump-Russia saga.
Alexandria, Virginia-based U.S. District Court Judge Liam O’Grady’s two-page order made short work of Nunes’ suit, which sought $9.9 million in damages from Fusion GPS, its founder Glenn Simpson and a nonprofit watchdog group, Campaign for Accountability.
Nunes is already suing multiple outlets, Twitter, and a fake cow. Collectively he seeks over one billion dollars.
