‘Take your letter and shove it’: Rep. Ted Lieu sends fiery response after Devin Nunes threatened to sue him
Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California fired a salvo at Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, also of California, on Friday by posting a letter responding to his colleague’s threat of a lawsuit.
Lieu said that Nunes had threatened to sue him, a fact he first made public on Wednesday. In a tweet on Friday, Lieu shared a picture of a letter from Nunes’ attorney, with the subject line “RE: Nunes v. Lieu.” Though Lieu only shared the first of what he said was five pages of the letter, the visible text made clear that Nunes’ complaint almost certainly involved defamation, for which the Republican has been suing many of his critics in recent months.
‘He’s in trouble’: Ex-GOP lawmaker hammers ‘meathead’ Devin Nunes during Bill Maher interview
During the "Overtime" segment of Bill Maher's "Real Time," former GOP lawmaker Joe Walsh was asked about Rep. Devin Nunes and his latest problems after being tied to Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas -- and immediately called California Republican a "meathead."
Asked by host Maher what should happen to Nunes, Walsh jumped right into it.
"Oh, my gosh, he's a meathead," Walsh began to applause and cheers from the audience.
"I'm serious, Bill," he continued. "I think he's in trouble. He's clearly in trouble."
"Legal trouble?" Maher pressed.
"I don't know, possibly, " Walsh replied. "But he and Parnas were like best friends; communicating on this deal, he was part of it. He denied he knew the guy -- he's in trouble."
