The Washington Post just got some bad news.
A federal judge has allowed GOP Rep Devin Nunes (R-CA) lawsuit against the Washington Post to move forward.
A federal judge ruled ruled Wednesday that a defamation lawsuit by Rep. Devin Nunes (R) could continue against the Washington Post. In the lawsuit, Nunes complained that the newspaper described some of his theories as “baseless” and that previous Post reporting indicated that some of those theories were, indeed, correct. The Post‘s contradictions led the judge to rule that Nunes had a shot at recovery despite a subsequent correction by the newspaper.
U.S. District Judge Carl J. Nichols, a Donald Trump appointee who on the same day granted procedural wins to voting system company U.S. Dominion in a defamation lawsuits against election conspiracy theorists Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, Mike Lindell, and several associated organizations, also ruled that the Nunes case should similarly stay alive.
“Although the question is a close one,” Judge Nichols wrote, “Nunes’s allegations suffice to survive dismissal as to his defamation claim, but not as to his negligence claim.”
The lawsuit centers around a November 9, 2020 Washington Post article which accused Nunes of airing “baseless claims of the Obama administration spying on Trump Tower.” That line appeared in a story which largely centered on Michael Ellis, who was selected as general counsel of the National Security Agency after serving as Nunes’s Chief of Staff.
The lies of the Fake News media are coming back to haunt them.
