Devin Nunes' suit dumped

A federal judge has tossed out a racketeering lawsuit former House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes filed last year against the private investigation firm at the heart of the Trump-Russia saga.

Alexandria, Va.-based U.S. District Court Judge Liam O'Grady's two-page order issued Friday made short work of Nunes' suit, which sought $9.9 million in damages from Fusion GPS, its founder Glenn Simpson and a nonprofit watchdog group, Campaign for Accountability.

The judge also signaled that pressing on with the legal battle could result in sanctions against Nunes and his attorney, Steven Biss.

California GOP lawmaker claimed that he was a victim of "active, coordinated and ongoing corruption, fraud and obstruction of justice" by the defendants that stemmed from his efforts to investigate the firm's role in stoking suspicions about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's ties to Russia during the 2016 campaign.
