Trump’s Lawyer Meets Ukrainian Lawmaker Over Biden Probe

Trump’s Lawyer Meets Ukrainian Lawmaker Over Biden Probe

Sean Hannity had Nunes on his Fox News show Tuesday night, and they focused instead on Nunes' new $435 million defamation lawsuit against CNN.

Following a November 22 story that claimed that an associate of Rudolph Giuliani was willing to tell Congress that Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., met with an ex-Ukrainian official for dirt on Joe Biden, Nunes filed a lawsuit on Tuesday seeking $435 million in damages.

The Nov. 23 CNN story disclosed an attorney for an indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani, Lev Parnas, said that his client would testify under oath that Nunes had made such a trip.

"When asked if he had concerns about Nunes' appearance in the call records and whether Nunes should recuse himself, Schiff reserved comment - but he did go on to say, "[it is] deeply concerning that at a time when the President of the United States was using the power of his office to dig up dirt on a political rival, that there may be evidence that there were members of Congress complicit in that activity".

In the filing, Nunes claims that he did not visit Vienna in 2018. "It is the least trusted name", the complaint reads.

Nunes claimed that the CNN report was "demonstrably false" but did not provide proof.

"CNN is eroding the fabric of America, proselytizing, sowing distrust and disharmony", the document continues.

Giuliani, President Donald Trump's personal attorney and former New York City mayor, was investigating Ukraine's involvement in the 2016 election at the time.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) defended Nunes during a press conference on Tuesday, telling reporters, "I don't have a problem with Devin talking to individuals".

In the lawsuit, Nunes denies ever meeting Shokin, traveling to Vienna in December a year ago, and communicating with Parnas during that time. "It must be held accountable".
