Former U.S. Representative Devin Nunes left Congress to run Donald Trump’s failing Twitter-doppelganger Truth Social into the ground, just the latest in a string of bad decisions that include a dubious connection to Russian spy Maria Butina. But Nunes is perhaps best known for trying to sue a Twitter parody account, so it’s not surprising he also tried to sue CNN for saying true things he didn’t like either.
I guess it’s normal for someone with alleged ties to the Russians to be nervous and paranoid at all times, which is why Nunes accused CNN of intentionally publishing a “fake news article” in November 2019 and said they “engaged in a conspiracy against him” to damage his reputation. Nunes claimed CNN made false claims that he was involved in efforts to get “dirt” on then-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden (spoiler: he totally was!). Nunes sought over $435 million in damages, an oddly specific number considering he’s a Trump lackey.
Dear Reader, you and I both know the Republicans always tell on themselves while bringing about their own demise. It’s really only a matter of time before they project their inner truths all over the Democrats.
Devin Nunes is back: “Twitter is a press release wire, it’s a place where celebrities go and put out a press release. … You know, compared to what we're doing at Truth, where we’re building a community, we’re not a place for celebrities to put press releases — I mean, you can.” pic.twitter.com/zKohfWQhrr

My reaction to everything Devin Nunes says is “Cow, please.”
Fortunately, it’s too late for Devin to get his old gig back. There are already six declared candidates in the race to replace him, so at least he can’t make any decisions to impact the country as a whole anymore (unless he’s still talking to Maria Butina, and then we might still have a Devin Nunes problem).
