WaPo reported that Nunes recently sued CNN for $435 million dollars due to an article about his involvement in the Biden investigation as related by Lev Parnas. Also

In March, Nunes filed a $250 million lawsuit against Twitter, claiming the platform, two parody Twitter accounts and a Republican political consultant defamed him with mean tweets. He sued the McClatchy news organization, alleging defamation in August, and sued Ryan Lizza and Hearst Magazines for $77 million two months later, claiming that a story in Esquire about the Nunes family farm in Iowa defamed him.

Has Nunes won any such defamation lawsuits against media outlets in the past?

    What makes you think this is a historical phenomena? – apgov Dec 21 '19 at 3:12

    This is really a question for law.SE. And it's essentially a question of whether the suits have been reached the trial or if they have been settled already. Given how how slow these things proceed, the answer is almost certainly a "no". But the reasons for why it takes as long as it does would be much better answered by someone competent in the matters of law. – grovkin Dec 21 '19 at 15:25
  • @grovkin: I'm not asking any law details. I just want to know what his record in this matter is. He seems to sue for defamation more than your average politician. – Fizz Dec 21 '19 at 20:36

    @Fizz it would be more clear if you asked if he "filed (or even won)" such suits in the past. – grovkin Dec 21 '19 at 20:38
