Devin Nunes Unleashes The Lion On CNN And Daily Beast; Check Out What He’s Got In Store For Them After Thanksgiving

(Tea Party PAC) – Many news outlets that belong to the mainstream media have become nothing more than propaganda machines for the Democratic Party and the progressive movement as a whole, forsaking all forms of journalistic integrity. The media used to simply present the facts of an unfolding story and allow American citizens to make up their own mind about the issues of the day.

That’s no longer the case. Instead, news organizations spend all of their time and energy crafting narratives that help push forward the agenda of liberals in government and Hollywood, hoping to see America radically transformed into some sort of socialist utopian paradise. Which will not and cannot ever happen, simply because that particular system violates established laws of reality, making it impossible for it to work in the real world.

Rep. Devin Nunes told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo he’s had enough of news outlets like CNN and the Daily Beast doing smear campaigns and has opted to take the two companies to court after Thanksgiving.

Here’s more Gateway Pundit:

Rep. Devin Nunes (D-CA) joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures this weekend and dropped a BOMB!

Rep. Nunes said that he will sue CNN and The Daily Beast to federal court after Thanksgiving for their complete smear against him.

Nunes announced on Friday that he was thinking about suing CNN and The Daily Beast after they ran with fake hit pieces on him meeting former Ukrainian Prosecutor Victor Shokin in Vienna.

On Sunday Nunes told Maria Bartiromo that he intends to file charges after Thanksgiving in federal court.

Rep. Nunes: I’m the last guy who wants to go to into the court. But the media has become totally corrupt that now they’re willing to actually engage and help with criminals, indicted criminals. These people are sick and the only way they’re going to be held accountable is through the courts.

Thank God for Devin Nunes.

This guy is a fighter!

Here are further details via Fox News:

Nunes first threatened legal action on Friday, after both outlets published stories claiming the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee had met with Ukranian prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, in Vienna in 2018 to push for an investigation into Hunter and Joe Biden. Both stories cite former Rudy Guliani associate, Lev Parnas, who was indicted in October for conspiring to violate the ban on foreign donations, prompting Nunes to question the validity of the source.

“I’ve been used to this for the last three years,” Nunes told Fox News. “The House Intelligence Committee Republicans, we continue to expose Democrat corruption over and over again. And what always happens is right when we expose them… they go out to kill the messenger.”

“So this week — another fake news story. The problem with this week’s fake news story is — we actually caught them,” he continued. “And we caught them badly and it also involves criminal activity… We are going to take both CNN and the Daily Beast likely into federal court, right after Thanksgiving and we hope they cooperate.”

The Daily Beast originally broke the story about Nunes’ alleged meeting on Thursday, citing Parnas’ lawyer Ed MacMahon as their source. The Beast also cites congressional travel records which it claims shows Nunes traveled to Europe from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3, 2018, along with three of his aides. CNN followed up with an articleon Saturday, citing Parnas’ other lawyer, Joseph A. Bondy, who said Nunes was put in touch with officials who could help him dig up dirt on the Bidens.

“It is not OK to work with someone who has been indicted on [a] serious federal crime, to build a media narrative and dirty up a member of Congress,” he said. “You’ve seen it, the American people have seen it over the last three years. We out them, and then they come out with a media narrative to try to dirty up the people who are doing the work on behalf of the American people.

“So we hope that CNN and Daily Beast will cooperate with the court,” Nunes continued. “They should comply with the subpoenas once we file this and go through different depositions. It should be fun.”

Host Maria Bartiromo asked Nunes if he wished to elaborate further on his involvement in the case, but he declined to go any deeper, saying he would not debate the issue through the media.

“I really want to answer all these questions,” he said. “But I think you can understand that I can’t compete by trying to debate this out with the public media when 90 percent of the media are totally corrupt. And because this is criminal in nature and because it’s so bad, it’s so slanderous — we’ve got all the facts on our side and we’re going to file in federal court, because I’m not going to sit here and try to compete against the media that I have no chance of winning this. I will win in court.”

Nunes did, however, say it’s “likely” that CNN and the Daily Beast committed criminal activity, and claimed the only way to find out the truth is to have them answer questions under oath.

“It’s very likely [they committed a crime], or they’re an accessory to it,” he said. “So none of this is true… We will get to all the facts when it’s filed in court. But somehow they’re either witting or unwitting of listening to somebody who’s been indicted and not only that, but it’s their lawyers. So you’re talking about third and fourth hand hearsay to do what? To dirty up the leader of the Republicans on the Intelligence Committee that just destroyed their complete narrative that they’ve been pushing.”

This, ladies and gentlemen, is precisely what every single conservative being attacked by the media needs to be doing, especially when the stories they’re presenting aren’t even remotely true. The media is shocked every single time someone on the right actually stands up to their bullying tactics.

This is how we beat them and hopefully restore journalistic integrity. We must fight them tooth and nail, show them we will not stand for the lies. Here’s to hoping Nunes drags these companies through the mud.

  1. Kudos, Rep Nunes — keep up
    pressuring these pretenders!

    (It’d be nice if Tea Party editors were more engaged, ensuring professionally written pieces.)

  2. Go get’em Nunes! Maybe you’ll break the glass ceiling for the rest of your Party! It’s about time! Proud to say you’re from Calif. and I can’t say that about most of them!!

  3. The media used to just report news? Are you serious? Ever hear of yellow journalism? Walter Cronkite helped us lose Vietnam when they were at the peace table.

  4. I’m really so tired of the same old cr*p day-after-day, week-after-week, month-after-month ETC!! I trust that Devon Nunes is very serious about taking these A….Holes to Federal Court – because he should win big-time and make a very big point!!
    Enough-is-enough!! These so-called media outlets (print & TV) need to be taught-a-lesson, once and for all!! We have to get back-on-track, with ethical and principled “Journalism” in our country!! I also expect AG Barr and the DOJ to do the same thing, with all the corrupt and lying individuals – who are behind this Impeachment SHAM!!

  5. Keep fighting for our country specially our freedom of speech and second amendments that Democrats wants to abolish .
    Thank you ! Devin Nunez good and honest congressman of California

  6. So why didnt Nunez tell Maria and us where he went between November 30th and December 3rd that would show clarity and journalistic integrity wouldn’t it. Of course he’s not going to do anything like that and as a matter of fact that’s why he filed this suit so he can say that his lawyers tell him he can’t comment any further on a matter pending before court .

    • It looks like Nunes spent ~$59,000 of tax dollars on that trip.
      What’s next, claiming that it was his evil twin “Devan” ?
