For someone as concerned about his public image as his numerous defamation lawsuits against his political opponents indicate, prominent Republican Congressman Devin Nunes (Calif.) sure doesn’t check his email list very closely. Republican political operative Liz Mair has now revealed that while Nunes maintains a defamation lawsuit against her (and a couple of others) seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in damages because they dared to criticize the belligerent, incendiary Congressman, Nunes has asked her for money. Specifically, she got a campaign fundraising email requesting donations, although based on the screenshot she provided, it’s unclear exactly where the donations were going.
Apparently, Nunes got the email list from Ted Cruz, considering the message has an email address associated with the Texas Republican Senator’s website but the California Congressman’s name on it.
‘Apparently, @DevinNunes rented Ted Cruz’s email list. In my opinion, that’s a little off-brand. Cruz has a large civil libertarian streak. Just my opinion, but Nunes seems… not to. Also, I love that this guy’s trying to raise $$ from me while suing me for $400M.’

Nunes’ lawsuit, which is the same one targeting Twitter accounts including “Devin Nunes’ Cow,” alleges that Mair “relentlessly smeared and defamed” Nunes, indicating the outlandish thinness of his skin and his complete lack of self-awareness, considering the endless vitriol that his Dear Leader spouts.
In the email, which apparently went out on Tuesday, the last day of 2019’s fourth fundraising quarter, Nunes was trying to raise money off impeachment. The message’s rant read:
‘Despite the Left’s best efforts to control their ridiculous narrative, the American people can see right through their partisan charade. The facts remain clear: there is no evidence of wrongdoing by President Trump. The facts are clear, yet the Democrats are still doing everything in their power to remove President Trump from office. This is based on pure hatred and contempt for the will of the American people.’
Talk about wild egomania. As it’s been throughout essentially the entirety of the impeachment proceedings, the American public is about evenly split in their opinions about the process. And rather than some kind of secret well of hatred, Democrats have made hundreds of pages of evidence public that implicates the president in a scheme to get Ukraine to produce dirt on his domestic political opponents.
