“You Know Cows Are Notorious for Dueling”; “Cows Don’t Have Fingers”: Check Out the “Motion to Quash” Devin Nunes’ Moooooronic Lawsuit

Also, Sen. Scott Surovell's Twitter following more than doubles in a few hours as his law firm brilliantly mocks Nunes


For all of us – and presumably it’s a large majority of Americans who have ever had the displeasure of watching/listening to/interacting with one of Trump’s most unhinged defenders, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA22) – this defamation lawsuit, in which Nunes “wants to compel a former Democratic National Committee employee [Adam Parkhomenko] and a Democrat-supporting law firm to turn over their communications with anonymous writers who criticize him on Twitter.” I know, it’s “udderly” ridiculous. But wait, it gets even mooooore absurd:

Nunes in the case also is suing Republican political strategist Liz Mair and anonymous writers behind social media accounts known as Devin Nunes’ Cow and Devin Nunes’ Mom. He alleges they conspired to defame him in the 2018 election, interfering with his investigations as House Intelligence Committee chairman and causing him to win the 2016 election by a narrower margin than usual.

So…enjoy the following, including the full response from Parkhomenko’s legal team (courtesy of the Law & Crime blog), led by Virginia State Sen. Scott Surovell, which explains – among other things – that cows don’t have fingers and therefore can’t use Twitter. Haha. Also gotta love that Surovell’s Twitter following has more than doubled in less than a day, as he becomes known nationally for having helped make Devin Nunes look even more foolish than usual. I mean, seriously, does that guy have mad cow disease or something? Heh.
