Now that the Mueller has killed the collusion delusion, it’s long overdue that the good guys strike back against the liars who perpetrated the greatest hoax in American history that was RussiaGate.
One of the most vociferous critics of the Democrat-Deep State-Media axis of evil has been Republican Rep. Devin Nunes who is now looking for payback.
On Monday, Nunes just sued the bastards!
In a $150 million lawsuit against McClatchy and other fake news outlets and operatives, Nunes is going after his own pound of flesh.

Via American Greatness, “Nunes Files $150 Million Lawsuit Against McClatchy for ‘Yacht, Cocaine, Prostitutes’ Smear”:
Like the lawyers who are suing multiple media outlets for smearing the Covington Catholic boys, House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes is on a mission to hold the media accountable for its malicious lies. Last Month, the congressman filed a lawsuit in Virginia state court against Twitter and a handful of its users–including Republican consultant Liz Mair– seeking $250 million in compensatory damages and $350,000 in punitive damages.
On Monday, Fox News reported that Rep. Nunes filed a $150 million lawsuit against the McClatchy Company and others, alleging that one of the news agency’s reporters conspired with Mair to smear Nunes and derail his committee’s Russia investigation. The California congressman is also determined to hold former Obama officials and others for perpetrating the Russia collusion hoax.
The filing, obtained by Fox News, came a day after Nunes, R-Calif., revealed he would send eight criminal referrals to the Justice Department this week concerning purported surveillance abuses by federal authorities during the Russia probe, false statements to Congress and other matters.
In Monday’s complaint, Nunes alleged that Mair conspired with McClatchy reporter MacKenzie Mays to spread a variety of dishonest smears online and in print– including the outrageous allegation that Nunes “was involved with cocaine and underage prostitutes.”
On Fox News’ Hannity Monday night, Nunes said that a couple of reporters at McClatchy were “the biggest perpetrators of the Russia hoax,” pointing out that left-wing operatives also targeted the National Rifle Association with the media’s help.
Nunes is loaded for bear!
He also announced his intent to send EIGHT criminal referrals to the Justice Department this week relating to the role of corrupt officials in the failed coup against President Trump.
Nunes let the cat out of the bag on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo in an indication that the good guys are about to go on offense.

California Rep. Devin Nunes said Sunday he plans to submit eight criminal referrals to the Justice Department this week related to the Obama administration’s handling of the Trump-Russia investigation.
Nunes said on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that the referrals will be made for alleged leaks of classified information to the media, for manipulating intelligence and for misleading foreign intelligence surveillance court judges regarding the infamous Steele dossier.
Nunes declined to identify the Obama officials who will be subject to the referrals. He said that five of the referrals name specific government officials he believes have lied to Congress, misled Congress or leaked classified information.
“We believe there is a conspiracy to lie to the FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] court, mislead the FISA court, by numerous individuals that all need to be investigated and looked at,” said Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee.
The announcement comes days after Nunes wrote an op-ed on the end of the Russian collusion hoax that was published by the Washington Examiner.

According to Nunes:
It is astonishing that intelligence leaders did not immediately recognize they were being manipulated in an information operation or understand the danger that the dossier could contain deliberate disinformation from Steele’s Russian sources. In fact, it is impossible to believe in light of everything we now know about the FBI’s conduct of this investigation, including the astounding level of anti-Trump animus shown by high-level FBI figures like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, as well as the inspector general’s discovery of a shocking number of leaks by FBI officials.
It’s now clear that top intelligence officials were perfectly well aware of the dubiousness of the dossier, but they embraced it anyway because it justified actions they wanted to take — turning the full force of our intelligence agencies first against a political candidate and then against a sitting president.
The hoax itself was a gift to our nation’s adversaries, most notably Russia. The abuse of intelligence for political purposes is insidious in any democracy. It undermines trust in democratic institutions, and it damages the reputation of the brave men and women who are working to keep us safe. This unethical conduct has had major repercussions on America’s body politic, creating a yearslong political crisis whose full effects remain to be seen.
Having extensively investigated this abuse, House Intelligence Committee Republicans will soon be submitting criminal referrals on numerous individuals involved in these matters. These people must be held to account to prevent similar abuses from occurring in the future.
The congressman did not divulge any of the names that are on the referrals but some candidates could probably include those of McCabe, Comey, Strzok, Brennan, Clapper and their assorted underlings who then could be squeezed to finger the kingfish himself; Barack Obama who would have to have been an idiot to not have known about this plot.
