Here's Nunes' Bumbling Defense Of Those Key Giuliani, Parnas Calls

Shokin is at the heart of the conspiracy theory that Giuilani and Parnas were peddling in Ukraine to try to urge the Ukrainian government to investigate the Biden family. "It was obvious that his lies were part of a thinly-veiled attempt to obstruct justice and to trick either the United States Attorney or House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) into offering "immunity" in return for "information" about Plaintiff - a prominent United States Congressman and Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee".

The lawyer, Joseph Bondy, also claimed that former Ukrainian chief prosecutor Vicktor Shokin himself had disclosed Nunes' efforts to his client, a Soviet-born US citizen and Florida businessman. This meeting never took place.

He's suing over a November 22 report that Lev Parnas, the indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani, was prepared to tell Congress that Nunes met with Victor Shokin, the former Ukrainian prosecutor, in Vienna previous year to discuss "digging up dirt" on Joe Biden.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court, alleged violations of Virginia's law against insults and singled out CNN reporter Vicky Ward, who wrote the article, and anchor Chris Cuomo, who discussed its details on air, for conspiring with the network "to boost CNN's ratings and further the House Democrats" impeachment "inquiry'". "Viktor Shokin doesn't know and hasn't even heard of Devin Nunes". Nunes said in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity that "it's possible" he spoke to Parnas.


"It was obvious to everyone - including disgraceful CNN - that Parnas was a fraudster and a hustler", Nunes's lawsuit states. CNN is eroding the fabric of America, proselytizing, sowing distrust and disharmony.

Nunes, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said he visited Libya and Malta previous year as part of a "codel" - or congressional delegation. "It must be held accountable", according to court documents.

The phone records, which are labeled in the report's endnotes as coming from AT&T, show a web of communications between Solomon, Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, Ukrainian American businessman Lev Parnas, Nunes and the White House's budget office. Nunes responded, "I don't talk to you in this lifetime or the next lifetime". "CNN is the mother of fake news".
