On today’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Rep. Devin Nunes (D-CA) rejected the “fake news” reports that he consulted with previous Ukrainian district attorney Viktor Shokin to get dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
He included he was taking CNN and the Daily Monster to federal court.
Nunes stated, “I have been utilized to this for the last 3 years. Your House Intelligence Committee Republicans, we continue to expose Democrat corruption over and over again. And what constantly occurs is right when we expose them, what do they do? They head out to kill the messenger. So this week another fake news story. The problem with this week’s phony news story, then we in fact caught him. And we captured them badly and likewise involves criminal activity and so what we are going to do, I provided a declaration on Friday night, we are going to take both CNN and the Daily Monster likely into federal court right after Thanksgiving. And we want to comply due to the fact that were likewise going to be dealing with the appropriate law enforcement authorities since it is not okay to work with somebody who has been prosecuted on severe federal criminal offense to develop a media narrative and filthy up a member of Congress. You have actually seen it, the American people have seen it over the last 3 years. We out them, and then they, with the media story to attempt to filthy up individuals who are doing the deal with behalf of the American people. We hope that CNN and the Daily Beast will work together with the court, they ought to abide by the subpoenas once we file this and go through various depositions. It needs to be enjoyable.”
When asked if he remained in Vienna with Shokin, Nunes said, I truly wish to answer all of these questions, and I guarantee you I absolutely will return on the show and address these concerns. But because there is criminal activity here, we’re dealing with the suitable law enforcement firms, we’re going to file all this, everybody is going to understand the fact, everybody is going to understand all the truths, however I believe you can understand that I can’t compete by trying to discuss this out with the public media when 90%of the media are totally corrupt. And due to the fact that this is criminal in nature and because it’s so bad, it’s so slanderous, we have actually got all the realities on our side, and we’re going to submit in federal court because I’m not going to sit here and try to contend against the media that I have no chance of winning this. I will win in court in, and they’ll have a chance to cooperate, and they’ll need to show how they deal with someone who has been prosecuted, which is most likely conspiring to obstruct justice here.”
Bartiromo asked, “Just to be clear– you’re stating your taking legal action against CNN, you’re suing Daily Beast, I understand you sued Twitter in the past, do you think this is going someplace, you’re informing me that CNN dedicated criminal activity?”
Nunes said, “It’s highly likely. Or they’re an accessory to it, right? So none of this holds true.”
He added, “The unfortunate part is, I’m the last guy that wishes to enter into the courts, however the media has actually become absolutely corrupt that now they’re ready to actually engage and aid with lawbreakers, arraigned wrongdoers. These people are ill, and the only way they’re going to be held responsible is through the court system. And It’s the only opportunity I have to really get the facts out for the American people since they can’t lie to a court.”
