Redistricting In California May Cost Devin Nunes His Congressional Seat

 

While Democratic challengers have been trying (and failing) for years to defeat Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), redistricting could well send Nunes into early retirement as soon as the 2022 midterm elections.

The Fresno Bee reports that the California redistricting commission has just unveiled a map which would put Nunes in a new district which went heavily for President Joe Biden in 2020:

An editor for The Cook Political Report, which tracks elections, wrote on Twitter that Nunes’ district would turn from having voted for former President Donald Trump in 2020 by five percentage points to one that backed President Joe Biden by nine.

 

While the maps could be changed as a result of constituent feedback, the redistricting commission has the final say in the matter.

There are few members of Congress from the Golden State who are more despised than Nunes, a loyal supporter of Trump who even went on what later became known as “Devin’s midnight run,” a late night meeting at the White House in 2017 where he was given access to a confidential source and shared classified intelligence with Trump.

The head of the House Intelligence Committee secretly went to the White House grounds to meet with a source, before he surprised his colleagues by briefing the president — and the press — on information they hadn’t seen.

In other words, Nunes broke with protocol in an attempt to curry favor with Trump and short-circuit the investigation of possible ties between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russian officials, meaning he directly helped benefit the Russians as they sought to hide their connections to Trump.

Under the proposed redistricting plan, the city of Fresno would be split three ways, with Nunes getting a slice of the city but seeing his new district turn considerably bluer than it is now, which could be the end of his political career.

About the only option Nunes would have is to run in a more Republican district, though those are few and far between in California as Dave Wasserman of the Cook Political Report noted:

Nunes has represented the 22nd congressional district since 2013.

As of today, Nunes is already facing four Democratic challengers in next year’s election, and if redistricting makes the 22nd even more Democratic, Nunes appears headed for an almost certain loss.

Devin Nunes Attacks President Biden For Observing A Moment Of Silence For Our Fallen Troops

For some time now, it’s been very clear that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is a self-promoting sack of treasonous shit who will betray his own country in his demented loyalty to fellow traitors such as failed former President Donald Trump.

And yet, despite the many disgusting things Nunes and said and done since arriving in Congress, what he said Thursday — just hours after an attack on American troops in Kabul, Afghanistan — was a new level of crassness, even for him.

During an appearance on Newsmax, Nunes was asked about the terrorist attack which killed 13 U.S. service members by host Greg Kelly. Here’s what the congressman had to say:

“My guess is it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets any better. Let’s just hope and pray that — because that’s about what we’re down to now, are hopes and prayers.

“What you saw Biden do, that I’ve never seen a president do, a moment of silence with the press? I mean, what the hell is going on in this country?”

The moment Nunes was referring to is when President Joe Biden asked for a moment of silence for the lost service members:

Why would anyone have a problem with what the president did? If Trump had done that (and he never would have, because he’s the most immoral and irreligious man to ever be elected president) Nunes would have wet himself in delight and declared him the greatest American in history.

Nunes was slammed for his remarks:

Memo to Devin Nunes: Shut up, traitor.

Devin Nunes Sues MSNBC Because Rachel Maddow Exposed His Ties To Russia

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) — who is fresh off losing a lawsuit he filed against CNN — is now suing the parent company of MSNBC, NBCUniversal Media, for defamation because MSNBC host Rachel Maddow dared to reveal his many connections to Russia and Russian operatives who tried to influence the 2016 presidential election.

According to Bloomberg:

“California Republican Congressman Devin Nunes sued NBCUniversal Media alleging that MSNBC’s liberal talk show host Rachel Maddow defamed him with on-air suggestions he’d conspired with a Russian agent to rig the 2016 presidential election for Donald Trump.

“Nunes, who is the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, says Maddow has repeatedly targeted him with defamatory statements that accuse him of obstruction of justice and treason. Nunes said Maddow has also called for him to lose his committee post and be stripped of his security clearances.”

What exactly did Maddow say that Nunes is claiming was defamatory? Well, she let the world know about his many ties to Russia and Russian nationals who played a part in running a smear campaign against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump, who was favored by the Kremlin.

Here’s what Maddow reported on March 8, 2021:

“Last summer, the Senate Intelligence Committee in the house learned that same guy, Derkach, had mailed a stack of unknown materials to Devin Nunes, who is the top Republican on the Intelligence Committee to this day. Andrei Derkach singled out by name by the Director of National Intelligence as someone under Vladimir Putin‘s direct purview who helped run this organization targeting our election last year. Congressman Nunes accepted a package from him. What was in it? Congressman Nunes has refused to answer questions about what he has received from Andrei Derkach.”

The problem for Nunes is that every single word of what Maddow said is true and easily fact-checked against declassified congressional and intelligence reports on the 2016 election.

So why is Nunes suing? He claims that Maddow and MSNBC never contacted him for comment and therefore he wasn’t allowed to present his side of the story. However, given the fact that Nunes constantly lies, his accusation is almost certainly false.

Also, a journalist as precise and seasoned as Maddow would never air a story without reaching out for comment from Nunes or an official representative who could speak on behalf of the congressman.

The highly litigious California Republican will lose the suit against NBCUniversal, the same way he’s lost all of the other defamation suits he’s filed against media companies — including Twitter — which dared to allow accounts that were critical of Nunes to remain on their platform.

Devin Nunes is a Russian asset. All the lawsuits in the world won’t change that fact.

Family Of Devin Nunes Holds Illegal Fireworks Display And Winds Up Setting Their Own Dairy On Fire

If perhaps you’ve ever wondered whether or not stupidity is a hereditary trait, consider the case of the family of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and their dairy farm just outside Tulare, California.

According to The Tulare Advance-Register, a massive 100-ton hay fire is burning at the Nunes and Sons Dairy, which has investigators wondering what exactly might have caused the blaze.

Well, according to neighbors who live near the Nunes dairy farm, it’s all connected a fireworks show held at the dairy on the eve of Independence Day:

“Neighbors on Oakdale Avenue said they witnessed a ‘Disney-style’ illegal fireworks show and party at the dairy, which is run by a relative of Tulare Congressman Devin Nunes.

“Lori Lockwood, who lives across from the dairy, said she heard loud booms and felt her house shake before midnight. She went outside with her husband and watched the colorful display, she said.

Soon after, Lockwood said her husband noticed a fire spreading in the field that separates their property from the Nunes’ family dairy. She called 911.”

“I was concerned because they use the field to grow corn and silage for their cows, and it’s completely dry. We were prepared to leave. Fortunately, Tulare County Fire (Department) responded quickly and put the fire out before it could reach us.”


Exceptionally dry weather in California has led officials to to warn against residents shooting fireworks at home, but apparently the Nunes clan doesn’t think the rules apply to them, much like their more well-known relative.

News of a fire at the dairy is especially ironic in light of the fact that Congressman Nunes sued Twitter over a parody account that pretended to be from a cow at the Nunes family dairy, as CNN reported last year:

“California Republican Rep. Devin Nunes cannot sue Twitter over allegedly defamatory remarks made about him by satirical accounts pretending to be his mother and a cow, a Virginia judge ruled Wednesday.

“Nunes sued Twitter, the two satirical accounts and a third Twitter user in March 2019, demanding $250 million in damages and that the anonymous accounts be unmasked.”

@DevinCow had this to say about the dairy fire:

So is stupidity an inherited trait? Mmmm…ooo….yeah.

Nunes And Jordan Are Up To Their Necks In Giuliani’s Latest Criminal Scandal

Now that over a month has passed since the FBI served search warrants on the home and office of Rudy Giuliani, new information is coming to light which suggests that the long-term fallout from the Justice Department’s investigation into the former mayor of New York City may also present major legal problems for two Republican members of Congress: Rep. Devin Nunes (CA) and Rep. Jim Jordan (OH).

Nunes name came up when it was revealed that not only did the FBI serve warrants on Giuliani, but also attorney Victoria Toensing, which led former federal prosecutor Daniel Goldman to respond to some tweets regarding Toensing also being on the warrant list:

That shows Nunes is also caught in the conspiracy that the DOJ is now starting to unravel.

As for Jordan, we since learned that he took $3,000 in contributions from Guiliani. That means he’ll also be getting a visit from the FBI very soon, if he hasn’t already.

Jordan was already facing a very uncertain run for another term in Congress next year, and when it was revealed that he’d taken, his likely Democratic challenger, Jeff Sites, remarked:

“It is beyond outrageous that Jim Jordan accepted money from the target of an active federal investigation. It would be improper for any member of Congress, but especially for Jordan, who helps lead the committee supervising the Justice Department while it conducts this probe.”

So while Rudy may be the one currently in the crosshairs, if Nunes and Jordan played any role whatsoever in Giuliani’s crimes, you can bet they’re going to be placed under the microscope, too.

Oh, there’s also the chance that Giuliani will roll over on Donald Trump and result in him being charged. That’s the only card the former president’s attorney has left to play.

Could Rudy wind up destroying the GOP? It’s beginning to look that way.
