Republican Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) filed a $150,000 lawsuit against McClatchy News alleging conspiracy to derail Clinton, Russia investigation.
This comes after Nunes annonced this past weekend he has eight criminal referrals to Attorney General Bill Barr.
Rep. Nunes joined Sean Hannity on Monday night to discuss his latest lawsuit and criminal referrals to AG Barr.

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.
n March, Nunes filed a similar $250 million lawsuit alleging defamation against Twitter and one of its users, Republican consultant Liz Mair. In Monday’s complaint, Nunes again named Mair as a co-defendant, charging this time that she conspired with McClatchy reporter MacKenzie Mays to spread a variety of untruthful and misleading smears — including that Nunes “was involved with cocaine and underage prostitutes” — online and in print.
Reached for comment late Monday, Mair directed Fox News to a USA Today op-ed she penned earlier this week concerning Nunes’ previous lawsuit entitled, “Free speech means I don’t have to be nice to Devin Nunes on Twitter. So why’s he suing me?”
