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.

‘Comparing yourself to terrorists?’ Internet cracks up at Trump saying dead 9-11 hijackers got more justice than him

Published

on

President Donald Trump quoted Fox News host Mark Levin that left many scratching their heads. Levin, who has a show on Sunday evenings, claimed that the terrorists from Sept. 11 got more due process than the president.

The claim was a curious one because, as many on Twitter noted, it's not often that the president of the United States compares himself to a terrorist. Secondly, the 9-11 hijackers all died in the attack, as they were on the planes that crashed into the buildings and into a Pennsylvania field.

Trump is known to quote Levin frequently, though the citations often make the president look worse.

MLK was ‘gravely disappointed’ with white moderates — whom he believed were responsible for impeding civil rights

"We also realize that the problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power."

—Martin Luther King Jr., 1967

This Martin Luther King Jr. Day comes as moderate Democrats, falling in line behind former vice president Joe Biden, are warning that the party risks re-electing Donald Trump if it nominates too radical a candidate for president — by which they mean someone like Senators Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe catches Alan Dershowitz in humiliating hypocrisy: ‘He’s not to be trusted’

Published

on

Harvard Constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe called out President Donald Trump's lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, Sunday on Twitter, noting that his opinions seem to evolve depending on who he's defending.

Dershowitz is on a kind of press junket for the president, defending him in various media appearances. The former lawyer to Jeffrey Epstein is handling Trump's defense as it pertains to the abuse of power. Dershowitz thinks that charge has no basis in law. In fact, impeachment trials aren't actually legal proceedings, they're political proceedings, because the Justice Department claimed that Trump can't be indicted under the law while he's president.
