Here's Nunes' Bumbling Defense Of Those Key Giuliani, Parnas Calls

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., on Tuesday sued CNN for defamation in a $435 million action regarding last month's report that claimed that he had traveled to Vienna past year to find negative information on former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden.

The story relied on an account from Lev Parnas, a now-indicted business associate of Rudolph W. Giuliani, relayed to CNN by his attorney, Joseph A. Bondy; Bondy has also said his client would be willing to tell Congress he learned from Shokin directly that he and Nunes met in Vienna previous year. Parnas, along with Igor Fruman, is accused of helping Giuliani ask Ukraine to investigate Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden and his son Hunter ahead of the 2020 election.

The Washington Times first reported on the lawsuit Tuesday, quoting the complaint as saying "Devin Nunes has never met Viktor Shokin".

House Intelligence chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) gave a press conference after releasing his committee's impeachment report, and he slammed Ranking Republican Devin Nunes (R-CA) for his apparent connection to the Ukraine scandal.

Representative Devin Nunes from California launched a defamation suit against U.S. news channel CNN on Tuesday over reporting on a story about a Republican congressman's visit to Vienna, Austria.

Bondy also told CNN that Parnas would be willing to testify that Nunes met with former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Victor Shokin. This meeting never took place.

Crystal Palace manager Hodgson: Townsend game is honesty personified
A hamstring problem for Van Aanholt is likely to see Hodgson hand Schlupp his first start since November 3 at Watford. Palace continued to fight against Bournemouth after that, and went on to goalless at half-time.

CNN's article reportedly did not verify or disprove the claims made by the attorney. "Viktor Shokin doesn't know and hasn't even heard of Devin Nunes".

In court documents posted in the Times, it was said that "Devin Nunes did not communicate with Parnas in December 2018".

Nunes claimed that the CNN report was "demonstrably false" but did not provide proof.

"From all the evidence in its possession, CNN was well-aware that Parnas was a renowned liar, a fraudster, a hustler, an opportunist with delusions of grandeur, a man in financial in extremis", the lawsuit says. CNN is eroding the fabric of America, proselytizing, sowing distrust and disharmony. "It must be held accountable". Nunes responded, "I don't talk to you in this lifetime or the next lifetime".

Nunes, who is the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, has been accused of having several phone calls with Giuliani, President Donald Trump's attorney, and Giuliani's associate Lev Parnas. "CNN is the mother of fake news".
