Devin Nunes blasted as ‘total traitor garbage’ by victim of his ‘illegal’ lawsuits against critics

devin nunes mouth open

The top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee was ripped on Saturday for being “garbage” for filing abusive lawsuits against critics.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has been suing critics — going so far as to sue a parody Twitter account written in the voice of a bovine owned by the Fresno lawmaker.

Susan Hennessey, the executive editor of Lawfare, wondered on Saturday why Republicans aren’t being asked about Nunes’ lawsuits.

“I don’t understand why the press isn’t asking congressional Republicans whether they believe Devin Nunes’s abusive lawsuits against the press and individual citizens are appropriate or acceptable,” Hennessey tweeted.

“The point of these suits is to impose substantial financial and psychological costs in order to scare people from critical coverage and reporting,” Hennessey noted.

One of the victims of the lawsuits, Democratic strategist Adam Parkhomenko, responded that he would not be cowered by Nunes and asked reporters to follow the money.

“I have yet to see a single reporter dig into who is funding the Nunes political lawsuits which do not show up on his FEC reports. Illegal,” Parkhomenko argued.

“As it relates to people he is suing and sending [subpoenas] to we are not scared and will show him lots of extra attention. We‘re doubling down,” he explained.

“I get the point being made but counter to conventional wisdom the only thing Nunes is going to wind up with at a bare minimum is being more humiliated for being complete and total traitor garbage. He f*cked with the wrong group of people here,” Parkhomenko wrote.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill tells the Post that he recently met with a group of Republican voters who traditionally send their ballots through the mail, but were now reluctant to do so thanks to the president's regular attacks on the system.

Trump’s ‘craziness’ is scaring off exhausted voters in the Rust Belt states: columnist

Published

on

In a column for the conservative Bulwark, political observer Daniel McGraw said voters in a key region between Pennsylvania and Ohio have had enough of the chaos in the Donald Trump's White House and his failure to bring the jobs he promised them in 2016.

As McGraw points out, the region along the border encompassing Erie, Crawford, Mercer, Lawrence and Beaver counties in Pennsylvania was a solid Democratic region until Trump came along. Writing that candidate Trump swept into the area in 2016 with rallies where he promised jobs and better times ahead McGraw stated that Trump's pitch was well-received and local voters turned out for him.
