Devin Nunes: CNN ‘in Defiance of Federal Judge’ Order to Respond to Defamation Lawsuit

That’s CNN. A no-show in court, a no-show in honest reporting.

Breitbart: CNN is in defiance of a federal judge’s order to respond to a defamation lawsuit filed by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) over a completely false story the network printed about the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) ranking member late last year, Nunes confirmed in an exclusive interview on Sunday night.

“It’s ironic how all of this blends together,” Nunes said on Breitbart News Sunday. “Remember the reason that CNN went with the story in the first place: it was right after the grand opening of the Democrats’ impeachment charade, and I think by all reasonable accounts, I was the person in the lead on that as the ranking member. And they didn’t like that myself, and John Ratcliffe, and Mike Turner and all the members of Congress — Elise Stefanik, Jim Jordan — I think we did a pretty good job without any witnesses practically destroying their entire narrative because all of their witnesses had no firsthand knowledge.” read more

6 Comments on Devin Nunes: CNN ‘in Defiance of Federal Judge’ Order to Respond to Defamation Lawsuit

  1. CNN Fake News did a no show because their beancounters in Accounting told the “talent” not to appear. “We cannot afford any more legal Judgments against us!”

  2. Isn’t it awfully dangerous not to show up in court in any sort of trial as you risk contempt charges or a summary judgement if the Judge is suitably pissed off? It strikes me that having a lawyer show if only to acknowledge the suit is smarter.

  3. CNN is a no-show.
    The judge finds against CNN “in absentia”.
    Nunes collects Big Bucks.
    Sounds like a win-win to me.
