In the wake of this week’s likely end of public impeachment hearings, there are a number of sharks just churning through the waves.
Everyone in Washington is hoping to smell blood. Find a weak point. Exploit and exterminate. This has been some of the roughest seas that the U.S.S. USA has faced perhaps ever, frighteningly enough, and the politicians at the top of the pecking order are looking likely to peck each others’ eyes out.
Ranking member of the House Intel Committee Devin Nunes was implicated in a foreign election meddling scheme by an incarcerated acquaintance of Rudy Giuliani, a man who also finds himself front and center in the impeachment fracas.
Nunes is furious about the allegations and their widespread reporting.
House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence ranking member Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) intends to file lawsuits against both CNN and the Daily Beast over fake hit pieces the outlets have published about him in recent days, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.
Two pieces recently published in both outlets–one from Daily Beast earlier this week, and one from CNN published late Friday–alleged that the Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, who is now indicted on unrelated charges, helped Nunes with a variety of matters when digging into Ukrainian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election on behalf of Democrats.
The Daily Beast story, from Betsy Swan (formerly Woodruff), alleges that Parnas helped Nunes set up a variety of meetings on Ukraine matters. The CNN story, from Vicky Ward, goes even further, alleging that Nunes arranged a secret trip to Vienna and met there with Victor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor that former Vice President Joe Biden pushed to have fired when Shokin was investigating Burisma Holdings, the natural gas company paying Biden’s son Hunter Biden $83,000 per month. It is unclear at this time how much of these reports are blatantly false, but most of each of them appear to be inaccurate, according to sources familiar with the matter.
With impeachment inevitably headed to the Senate in the coming weeks, we thought we’d be seeing less of Nunes in media.
That may no longer be the case.
