(Washington Examiner) Rep. Devin Nunes has filed a $150 million lawsuit against the McClatchy Company for allegedly attempting to derail his investigations into former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Russia.
A complaint says McClatchy and one its reporters, MacKenzie Mays, “schemed to defame [Nunes] and destroy his reputation." The central purpose of this alleged scheme was to "interfere with [Nunes]’ Congressional investigation of corruption by the Clinton campaign and alleged ‘collusion’ between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential election."
The complaint highlights a story by the Fresno Bee, a California newspaper owned by McClatchy, titled: "A yacht, cocaine, prostitutes: Winery partly owned by Nunes sued after fundraiser event."
