It’s about time somebody started taking CNN to the woodshed. so far as I’m concerned, this lawsuit is being leveled in service of the country as a whole.

The 47-page lawsuit, filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, accuses the liberal network of publishing “numerous egregiously false and defamatory” statements about Nunes on Nov. 22, 2019 when journalist Vicky Ward reported claims that Nunes met with Ukranian prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, in Vienna in 2018 to dig “up dirt” on Hunter and Joe Biden.

Nunes, who has been leading GOP opposition to the House Democratic impeachment inquiry in the House Intelligence Committee, says he “did not go to Vienna or anywhere else in Austria in 2018” and “has never met” Shokin.

One of the killer lines from the suit:

“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.”

It will be interesting to see CNN trying to defend itself on this one.
