Congressman Devin Nunes filed a lawsuit this week against CNN; claiming the news network promoted a false story concerning the Representative and Ukrainian officials.
“Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) filed a defamation suit against CNN on Tuesday over a story reporting that the Republican congressman had traveled to Vienna, Austria, to meet with foreign officials and discuss finding dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden (D),” reports The Hill.
“The Washington Times first reported Tuesday that Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, had filed a $435 million lawsuit arguing that the network had defamed him by falsely reporting he had traveled to Vienna and met with a Ukrainian prosecutor,” adds the website.
“CNN is the mother of fake news. It is the least trusted name. CNN is eroding the fabric of America, proselytizing, sowing distrust and disharmony. It must be held accountable,” the documents stated.
