    As a public figure or official – and a member of the U.S. House is the very definition of one – Nunes stands no chance. Under the standard of “actual malice” applied to public figures and officials, Nunes would have to prove CNN knew the information was false, or had reckless disregard for whether or not it was false. Black’s Law Dictionary defines actual malice as “The deliberate intent to commit an injury … .” I’d be shocked if it even went to trial.

    It’s great! Let the counter suits begin! Let the discoveries fly! Nunes stepping into quicksand; he evidently thinks cause Trump threats to sue that he/Nunes actually can. Wonder why Trump NEVER follows through. All records on the court room table and televised please!
