Rep. Devin Nunes filed a defamation lawsuit Tuesday against CNN.
The complaint is related to CNN’s published article on Nov. 22, which Nunes argues is a “demonstrably false hit piece.”
It alleged that Nunes, who lives in California, traveled to Vienna in 2018 to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joseph R. Biden.
The lawsuit reads, “Devin Nunes did not go to Vienna or anywhere else in Austria in 2018.”
Nunes says he visited two countries: Libya and Malta on a congressional delegation, or “codel.”
The lawsuit seeks $435 million in damages. The CNN claimed Nunes met with former Ukrainian chief prosecutor Viktor Shokin. The complaint goes on to say, “Devin Nunes has never met Viktor Shokin. This meeting never took place. Viktor Shokin doesn’t know and hasn’t even heard of Devin Nunes.”
