Judge Sends Devin Nunes' SLAPP Suits Against CNN And Washington Post Off To Their Proper Venues (techdirt)

It appears that at least one judge handling Devin Nunes' various SLAPP suits in Virginia has caught on to at least some of what's going on here. Judge Robert E. Payne has now transferred two of his lawsuits -- the ridiculous defamation filing against CNN and the even sillier SLAPP suit against the Washington Post -- to better venues. In both cases, the judge seems pretty fed up with Nunes' lawyer, Stephen Biss, opening both by quoting what was said to Biss in yet another one of his silly SLAPP s...

The 2020 election is six months away, and foreign interference in it has begun. The same people who brought you the conspiracy theories for which President Trump sought to extort Ukraine last year — leading to his impeachment — are now peddling something new. It’s audio clips of Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry speaking to Ukraine’s then-President Petro Poroshenko throughout 2016. The tapes — some of which come with bizarre gaps, suggesting that they’ve been edited —...

Flynn's Exoneration Was the Latest in a Life Full of Reversals

WASHINGTON -- There have always been two sides to Michael Flynn. There was the rebellious teenager who surfed during hurricanes and spent a night in juvenile reformatory.

He also called Obama a "liar" after being forced out of the job and reinvented himself as a Republican foreign policy adviser.Flynn cri...

Where Things Stand: Trump Didn’t Take McConnell’s Political Out

The Senate majority leader tried to give him an out. It’s hardly surprising that Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) would contort himself into a pretzel to offer President Trump some sort of excuse — especially one dripping in Trump’s favorite flavor of partisanship — for the administration’s botched handling of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. But the befuddling bit is Trump didn’t bite. During an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday, McConnell suggested that Congress a...

Twitter broadly bans any COVID-19 tweets that could help the virus spread

You don’t have to go far to find someone online downplaying the severity of a global pandemic that’s shut down entire economies and ground everyday life to a halt. Knowing that, Twitter will take extra steps to remove tweets that put people at risk of contracting the novel coronavirus as it rapidly sweeps through communities around the globe.
