In late October Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) defended his former staff member Kash Patel from the most recent and outlandish Democrat attacks.
According to Nunes Kash Patel was the lead investigator in totally annihilating Schiff and the Democrats and the entire Russia hoax.
Nunes then added that Kash Patel has a great case against the liberal media on defamation.
This was from a recent appearance by Nunes with Laura Ingraham.

Kash Patel took Nunes up on his advice.
Today Kash Patel, now working in the Trump White House, sued Politico for $25 million for a recent slanderous piece about him.
FOX News reported:
The impeachment inquiry against President Trump has triggered a wave of charges, countercharges, court battles, subpoenas and legal threats.
Now it has produced its first libel suit.
A White House official on Monday sued Politico and one of its reporters over stories and tweets that he says falsely accuse him of “lying, deceit and unethical conduct.”
Kash Patel, the National Security Council’s senior counterterrorism director, is seeking more than $25 million in damages in the suit filed in Virginia. We have reached out to Politico for comment.
The lawsuit also names Natasha Bertrand, a Politico reporter and MSNBC contributor, as well as Politico owner Robert Allbritton. The allegations, which center on what the president was told about the situation in Ukraine, go to the heart of the case for impeachment…
…The suit stems from Bertrand’s Oct. 23 story, headlined “Nunes Protege Fed Ukraine Info to Trump.” Patel previously worked for Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, spearheading the Intel Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, before joining the White House in February.
The Politico piece said Patel “was among those passing negative information about Ukraine to President Donald Trump earlier this year, fueling the president’s belief that Ukraine was brimming with corruption and interfered in the 2016 election on behalf of Democrats.”
