Ex-GOP lawmaker blisters ‘thin-skinned weakling’ Devin Nunes for threatening yet another lawsuit at critics

Published

Appearing on MSNBC on Sunday morning, former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) scorched former colleague Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) for threatening another lawsuit, this time against CNN and the Daily Beast for reporting that an indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani claims the California Republican met with former chief Ukraine prosecutor Viktor Shokin in Vienna in 2018 looking for dirt on political opponents.

With the Washington Times reporting on Saturday that Nunes has threatened yet anther lawsuit, Jolly said the combative defender of Donald Trump needs to step up and come clean and stop being so “thin-skinned.”

Host Gura noted that Nunes may be facing a Congressional ethics inquiry if the claims made by Lev Parnas attorney Joseph A. Bondy are true,  leading Jolly to first turn to Nunes’ initial response.

“Look, I would first say Devin Nunes wants to sue the media over this,” he began. “What a bunch of thin-skinned weaklings Republicans have become wanting to sue the media over a legitimate report.”

“Lev Parnas said he met with the prosecutor, that’s it. Stop trying to sue the media and sue the cow and all that other stuff” he continued noting another infamous lawsuit filed by the lawmaker against a Twitter critic posing as one of his cows. “The House Ethics Committee gives a lot of deference to members. Without a direct tie to some type of campaign contribution that he benefited from or an actual bribe, which clearly there is no reporting of, the question is did he bring ill-repute upon the House by not disclosing to the Intelligence Committee or his colleagues going into the series of hearings that in fact, he had a conflict or additional information.”

"How can [McConnell] justify leaving someone as the Chairman of the Intelligence Committee who is being investigated by the FBI for criminally abusing their position for personal, financial gain?!?!" Gaetz exclaimed on Twitter.

Trump thinks he’s still the star of a reality TV show as coronavirus death toll continues to mount: op-ed

Published

This Sunday, President Trump fired off a series of tweets where he bragged about the "ratings hit" of his coronavirus briefings --  a series of tweets that one columnist described as an example of "complete amorality" as doctors, nurses, and other public servants put their lives on the line battling the spiraling pandemic. Writing for The Week this Monday, Joel Mathis contends that as the country reels from being turned upside down, Trump is "looking into a mirror, asking it to assure him that he is the fairest of them all."

Donald Trumps needs a coronavirus scapegoat — and right now it’s China

"If we are at war, who is the enemy?" asks Fred Hiatt, editorial page editor for The Washington Post in a smart piece that examines the question of who constitutes a target for a self-declared "wartime president."

While it is obvious that the enemy, in this case, is a tiny, sticky, invisible microbe that stubbornly gloms onto surfaces or leaps through the air to weaponize subway cars or shared gym equipment or a touch to the face.
