The Democrats’ smear campaign isn’t stopping. Instead, it’s hitting new lows. CNN published a story insisting that House Impeachment Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes had visited Ukraine to dig up dirt on the Biden family. The CNN article opens by saying “(CNN)A lawyer for an indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani told CNN that his client is willing to tell Congress about meetings the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee had in Vienna last year with a former Ukrainian prosecutor to discuss digging up dirt on Joe Biden. The attorney, Joseph A. Bondy, represents Lev Parnas, the recently indicted Soviet-born American who worked with Giuliani to push claims of Democratic corruption in Ukraine. Bondy said that Parnas was told directly by the former Ukrainian official that he met last year in Vienna with Rep. Devin Nunes.” It continues, saying “Mr. Parnas learned from former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Victor Shokin that Nunes had met with Shokin in Vienna last December,’ said Bondy.”
Talk about ironclad hearsay. I’m impressed. Not. This is worthless. It wouldn’t be admitted in a court of law. That isn’t the worst of it, though. This is:
Lev Parnas’s attorney has told me that his client would not be making these claims if he didn’t have text messages and other such evidence to back them up.

CNN is running a major story that Devin Nunes met with a Ukrainian prosecutor on the word of a defense attorney whose client is facing serious charges? They’re publishing the article without seeing the texts? They’re just taking the defense attorney’s word without verification?
It’s difficult to picture a reporter being that gullible. Did she just throw out everything she learned in Journalism 101? That’s what it looks like.
“For all of the last three years, including the Russia hoax to the Ukraine hoax, this is the mother of all fake news stories. There is not one bigger than this,” Nunes said. “And so next week, we are going to take them to court. They will have an opportunity to come to court so that we can subpoena each other. We can get discovery. We can set people down for depositions. And I have a bet for you, Sean. CNN and The Daily Beast are going to run for cover. They’re going to fight this. They’re not going to show up in court. They’re not going to accept service.”
Devin Nunes has been maligned by the MSM for years. They’ve insisted that he’s blindly running interference for the Trump administration. What the MSM fails to admit is that, at least once a month, Nunes’ claims are proven right. It’s time CNN and the Daily Beast are held accountable.
