Kash Patel played a vital role in protecting Donald Trump from Democrat attacks, first as the lead investigator for Rep. Devin Nunes in fighting the fake Russia collusion story, and later in a variety of roles in the administration, including as chief of staff to the Secretary of Defense. Now he is bringing a defamation lawsuit against CNN and Politico to fight their false accusations against him.
“When I was running the Russiagate investigation with Devin Nunes and we unleashed the biggest political scandal in U.S. history, and people just hammered us personally, because they thought we were the liars pitching this false narrative and it turned out to be true, they started coming after us and our families, calling me, a minority in America, a genocidal dictator. and things like that. And that’s when you know you’re over the target. Devin took the lead on this and said we have to start fighting back… so I sued Politico, the New York Times, and CNN for defamation.”
