Congressman Devin Nunes stopped by ‘Hannity’ Monday night to discuss his massive lawsuit against social media giant Twitter; calling the legal battle the “first of many” against those platforms that “spread fake news.”
“Devin Nunes has filed a $250 million lawsuit against Twitter in Virginia state court alleging the social media company negligently failed to remove defamatory and malicious tweets against the Congressman and his family,” said Hannity.
“This is the first of many. What we’re doing here is we’re actually going after Twitter first because they are the main proliferator and they spread this fake news,” said Nunes.
“The case we’re making is that this was an orchestrated effort. People were targeting me… We’re not going to just let all these fake news stories that were written about this investigation, about this hoax — that were lies — we’re going to challenge every single one of them in court. We’re just starting with Twitter,” he added.

DEMOCRATS PANIC: Nunes Says FISA MEMO Only ‘PHASE ONE,’ Eyes Hillary’s STATE DEPT.
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes raised alarm bells within Democratic circles on Monday, saying his decision to release the bombshell FISA memo was just “phase one” in his efforts to get to the bottom of anti-Trump abuse throughout the federal government.
Nunes was speaking with Fox News when he outlined his vision for the next stage of the Committee’s investigation into widespread abuse at the FBI, Department of Justice, and beyond; adding he plans to “follow the facts where they lead.”
“What we will do in phase two is follow the facts where they lead, and when we get enough facts, we will figure out a way to let the American people know,” he told Fox & Friends.
“Phase one of our investigation was getting to the FISA abuse. What we’re looking at now is the State Department and some of the irregularities there,” he added.
Nunes’ comments come months after Attorney General Jeff Sessions confirmed his Department of Justice was investigating “certain issues” inside former President Barack Obama’s State Department; including Hillary’s Uranium One deal and possible “pay-to-play” arrangements between the State Department and Clinton Foundation.
DEVIN NUNES: Expect ‘Criminal Referrals’ from GOP’s Probe into FBI Political Bias
Rep. Devin Nunes confirmed Wednesday that he intends to make “criminal referrals” from his ongoing probe into political-bias and abuse at the Department of Justice and the FBI.
Nunes was speaking with Fox News this week when he was asked to comment on his investigation into allegations of anti-Trump bias throughout the agency both during and immediately after the 2016 presidential election.
“A lot of people think just because Republicans are out of power that we are not conducting an investigation. We still are,” Nunes said. “Whether or not people will come in and interview with us, we don’t have gavels, we don’t have subpoena power. But we will still be trying to interview people and we will still be making criminal referrals.”
Nunes launched the probe after widespread allegations the agency used the debunked ‘Steele Dossier’ to obtain FISA warrants against the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 election.
