The top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee misinformed viewers of the impeachment hearing with a falsehood while going out of his way to insult witnesses.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) attempted to downplay testimony from Ambassador Kurt Volker and former NSC official Tim Morrison.

"Well, Ambassador and Mr. Morrison, I have some bad news for you, TV ratings are way down," Nunes claimed.

"Way down," he repeated.

CNN chief legal correspondent Brian Stelter fact-checked the Fresno Republican.

Forbes senior contributor Mark Joyella pointed out that ratings are actually up.
