And this does not even count the ones against parody Twitter accounts.

California Republican Rep. Devin Nunes on Monday filed his seventh lawsuit in 12 months alleging that he was the victim of defamation or conspiracy, this time suing The Washington Post.
Nunes, R-Tulare, in a complaint filed Monday in the U.S. District Court of Eastern Virginia alleges a Feb. 21 news story describing an intelligence briefing given to members of Congress regarding Russia’s perceived preference for President Donald Trump’s re-election was part of a long-running effort at The Post to damage Nunes’ reputation.
Trump who counts Nunes among his closest allies in Congress, also has an at-times adversarial relationship with The Washington Post, referring to it as the “Amazon Washington Post” because it is owned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
Nunes in the complaint alleges Bezos bought The Washington Post in 2013 “for the purpose of using WaPo’s mighty pen to influence federal elections,” that Bezos is “desperate to defame the president” and that Post reporters coordinated actions with House Democrats to “impugn (Nunes’) reputation and undermine his relationship with the president.”
Of course, this lawsuit, like all of Nunes’ lawsuits will not go anywhere .
They are just designed to threaten people who dare to report the facts about him and his president and to injure them financially.
I really hope that the watchdog group that is looking into who is funding these lawsuits for Nunes gets some answers soon, because I would really like ot know who is paying for all of these.
