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.

GOP governors are refusing to do Trump’s bidding and ducking him on the campaign trail: report

Published

On Saturday, Maggie Haberman of The New York Times profiled how President Donald Trump is having less luck whipping Republican governors into line than Republican senators, including governors who arguably owe their election to his support.

"In Florida, Mr. Trump’s aides helped save the flailing candidacy of Ron DeSantis in the 2018 Republican primary, and then the general election," wrote Haberman. "Also last year, in Georgia, Mr. Trump helped pull Brian Kemp over the finish line in both the primary and the general election. In both cases, Mr. Trump’s advisers implored him to stay out of the primaries, and he agreed to — only to surprise his aides by jumping in to support Mr. DeSantis and Mr. Kemp."

Courts have avoided refereeing between Congress and the president — Trump may change all that

Published

President Donald Trump’s refusal to hand over records to Congress and allow executive branch employees to provide information and testimony to Congress during the impeachment battle is the strongest test yet of legal principles that over the past 200 years have not yet been fully defined by U.S. courts.

It’s not the first test: Struggles over power among the political branches predate our Constitution. The framers chose not to, and probably could not, fully resolve them.

Trump declares himself the ‘greatest of all presidents’ in manic tweetstorm attacking Pelosi and Democrats

Published

Donald Trump broke out of his Twitter hibernation on Saturday afternoon just before flying off to Florida for a pair of fundraisers, and used the opportunity to declare himself the "greatest of all presidents."

Attacking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for not passing his signature trade bill, Trump then went after Democrats for trying to impeach him -- saying they were making a big mistake.

On Twitter, the president wrote: ""Hard to believe, but if Nancy Pelosi had put our great Trade Deal with Mexico and Canada, USMCA, up for a vote long ago, our economy would be even better. If she doesn’t move quickly, it will collapse!"
