Rep. Devin Nunes (R-California), the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, has threatened to file lawsuits against CNN and the Daily Beast after they reported that Nunes and three aides flew to Europe for a four-day trip to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden at a cost of $63,000.

The reports stem from Lev Parnas‘ lawyer’s claim a few days earlier that his client would testify before the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives impeachment inquiry.

Former Federal Prosecutor Elie Honig told CNN on November 23 that if Parnas’s accusations were true then Nunes was certainly guilty of having committed a crime. Honig said, “It’s a federal crime for a person to try to solicit something of value to a political campaign from a foreign national.”

Nunes has trashed the reports made about him in the media as “demonstrably false.”

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s associate Parnas has offered to testified to the House of Representatives about the Ukraine saga. Parnas has claimed that Nunes met with an ex-Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin in Europe to seek dirt on Biden and his son.
