I’ve got some #DevinNunes lawsuit news, + if you live for that you should be following @kateirby at @FresnoBee! Here’s her story on Nunes’ former aide #KashyapPatel’s suit against @politico and @NatashaBertrand. $25M defamation, same lawyer as Nunes’ suits…
There’s lot of great detail in Irby’s piece, including that Kashyap “Kash” Patel is ***the author of the infamous “Nunes Memo”***. That shouldn’t surprise anyone that #DevinNunes, notorious for not reading any materials, couldn’t have written a conclusion on what they said.
This earlier tweet links to the @foxnews piece that first alerted Irby to the Patel lawsuit. Plenty to ruminate over in both pieces.

Like the pointless Nunes suits, they’re filed in VA despite the lack of a connection to any of the parties. Little on legal merit, plenty bombast.

😳One of the first things Trump says sitting with #Ukraine’s President Zelensky: “He’s very very strongly looking at all sorts of corruption.”

Then Trump says Crimea was lost under Obama. “But it was a long time ago. It’s just one of those things”😱

#Ukraine’s Zelensky finesses question about pressure from Trump on call. He says, you saw it, and I don’t want to get involved. But TRUMP adds

SCOOP >> Acting DNI Maguire threatened to resign if he can’t speak freely to Congress. So he seems to be fighting back against the extraordinary and lawless pressure from Trump White House. Wow! #WhistleblowerComplaint #UkraineExtortion #Ukraine…

1/16 It has begun. The GOP is spinning that the sole transcript Trump says he will release is more important than the #WhistleblowerComplaint as a tactic to insist everything should ride on this one supposed piece of evidence.

2/16 All reports indicate this was a months-long conspiracy Trump and Giuliani were engaged in, subverting & bypassing officials who tried to stop them.

A single call does not BEGIN to give an accurate depiction of the events that lead up to this.…
3/16 And Trump already has a shady history with releasing information.

Forget the obvious like his tax returns, school grades, and secret meetings with Putin.

Actually, a reminder of those secret meetings:

(1) I'll be honest, I had reservations about #impeachment since the start. It's not popular to say on Twitter, but I worry about an electoral backlash when the #Senate likely acquits. But #Trump's #UkraineExtortion is just too much; it's my breaking point.…
(2) Now we know that Trump personally ordered Mick Mulvaney to freeze $391 million in military aid to #Ukraine right before he pressured Ukrainian President Zelensky dig up dirt on the Bidens. This plot has all the criminal subtlety of a community theater production of Goodfellas
(3) It was bad enough #Trump targeted a political rival's son. It was horrifying he asked a foreign leader to intervene in our election. But now it's clear he turned U.S. military aid to #Ukraine into a shake-down scheme. If this isn't enough, where do we move the goalposts next?

💥Trump ordered hold on $400 military aid for Ukraine days before phone call pressuring President Zelensky to investigate Biden’s son.… #Whistleblower #WhistleblowerComplaint #UkraineExtortion
OMB relayed Trump’s order to hold Ukraine’s military aid to State Dept & Pentagon in mid-July. Officials were instructed to tell lawmakers delays were part of “interagency process” & to give no additional info. Pattern continued for nearly 2 months, until the night of Sept. 11.
🚨Ukrainian President Zelensky told Senator Murphy “directly” that “the aid that was being cut off to Ukraine by the president was a consequence” of Zelensky’s unwillingness to launch investigation into the Bidens. #Whistleblower #WhistleblowerComplaint #Ukraine #UkraineScandal
