Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) intends to file lawsuits against CNN and the Daily Beast for fake articles published about him in recent days, according to Breitbart News.

While this is not the first time Nunes has faced these media over erroneous reports, the lawsuit is the result of a Daily Best article earlier this week and another from CNN one on Friday, Nov. 22, where they reported that Lev Parnas—an associate of attorney Rudy Giuliani—helped Nunes with various issues related to Ukrainian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The Daily Beast story alleges that Parnas helped Nunes organize a variety of meetings on Ukrainian affairs. CNN’s story goes further, claiming that Nunes arranged a secret trip to Vienna and met there with Victor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor former Vice President Joe Biden pressured to fire when he was investigating the corruption ring of Burisma Holdings, the company Hunter Biden worked for.

“These demonstrably false and scandalous stories published by the Daily Beast and CNN are the perfect example of defamation and reckless disregard for the truth,” Nunes told Breitbart News Friday night.

Some political operative offered these fake stories to at least five different media outlets before finding someone irresponsible enough to publish them. I look forward to prosecuting these cases, including the media outlets, as well as the sources of their fake stories, to the fullest extent of the law. I intend to hold the Daily Beast and CNN accountable for their actions. They will find themselves in court soon after Thanksgiving, he added.

Nunes is one of President Trump’s greatest advocates and maintained that line for the past month during the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry against the president.

The House Intelligence Committee, which is now chaired by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), has conducted seven public impeachment hearings in the last two weeks over the Ukraine Case.

According to the basis of the impeachment, President Trump was suppose to have pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, his political opponent.

Eleven people testified during seven days of public hearings and did not present evidence of inappropriate acts by President Trump to the Ukrainian government.

Conventional media have become political instruments of the Democrats, often reporting only from their perspective.

On several occasions, President Trump used his Twitter account @realdonaldtrump to disprove fake facts; he has even openly named the mainstream media as misinformers, calling them the “enemy of the people.”

“The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American people,” President Trump said on Twitter.
