Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) on Friday dismissed what he said was the threat of a lawsuit from fellow Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), telling a lawyer for Nunes to “shove it.”
The Democrat shared on Twitter the first page of a letter sent by Nunes’s counsel and dated Dec. 31 in which the lawyer cited the right to maintain an “unimpaired reputation.” The letter was mentioned by Lieu on Twitter earlier this week.
The article goes on to state the following:
Lieu hinted in his response that the threat centered on his comments tying Nunes to Lev Parnas, a Soviet-born businessman and former associate of President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani who is at the heart of the impeachment proceedings.
In his response, Lieu wrote, “I welcome any lawsuit from your client and look forward to taking discovery of Congressman Nunes. Or, you can take your letter and shove it.”
The letter sent to Lieu had warned that if he didn’t issue a public apology for his claim that Nunes worked with Lev Parnas and “conspired to undermine” the government, that he would be slapped with a lawsuit from Nunes.
