In the interview summary, Shokin claims he was removed from his position under pressure from then-Vice President Biden, after being warned by US diplomats to break off investigations into Burisma, the gas company where Biden's son Hunter sat on the board. It is unclear at this time how much of these reports are blatantly false, but most of each of them appear to be inaccurate, according to sources familiar with the matter.
In an exclusive statement provided to Breitbart News, Nunes said: "These demonstrably false and scandalous stories published by the Daily Beast and CNN are the flawless example of defamation and reckless disregard for the truth". "Some political operative offered these fake stories to at least five different media outlets before finding someone irresponsible enough to publish them". I intend to hold the Daily Beast and CNN accountable for their actions.
Nunes said the news outlets "will find themselves in court soon after Thanksgiving".
Congressional records show Nunes did travel to Europe in 2018 from November 30 to December 3, but he was not required to disclose specific details from the trip, and there is no specific indication that he went to Vienna.

He stressed that the American administration has completely lost all credibility and no longer has any role in the peace process. We intend to keep on growing, and to do that we need your help. "Iraq's leaders must provide protection to human rights".
Over the past two weeks, CNN approached Nunes on two occasions and reached out to his communications staff to get comment for this story.
"They told me they were going to investigate it", Giuliani told CNN.
Asked again on Thursday about his travel to Vienna and his interactions with Shokin and Parnas, Nunes gave a similar response.
"I don't talk to you in this lifetime or the next lifetime", the California Republican said.

The previous week, the team was eliminated from the English League Cup by fourth-tier Colchester. Spur chairman said: "We were extremely reluctant to make this change".

Giuliani said he received a phone call shortly thereafter from Pompeo, who told Giuliani he would be referring the documents for investigation. "He knows what I did was to defend him, not to dig up dirt on Biden", he said, referring to an ongoing federal investigation that has so far led to the indictment of two of Giuliani's former associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, on charges of campaign finance fraud.
Congressman Devin Nunes does more with his time than sue imaginary cows and make our democracy look bad in the impeachment inquiry hearings, but he also somehow found time to meet engage in his own backdoor meetings with Ukraine to get them to investigate Joe Biden in a meeting organized by now-indicted associates of Rudy Giuliani.
It remains to be seen what will happen next, and how Nunes's lawsuit will come together.

Later Tuesday, the House was to hear from former NSC official Timothy Morrison and Kurt Volker , the former Ukraine special envoy. Williams is a State Department employee who is detailed to Pence's office and a career foreign service officer.
That information would likely be of great interest to House Democrats given its overlap with the current impeachment inquiry into President Trump, and could put Nunes in a hard spot. Amid reports this week that federal prosecutors have expanded the scope of their investigation into his foreign business dealings, the President's personal attorney made a guest appearance on Fox News this weekend where he defended his conduct and offhandedly threatened to blackmail his client, President Donald Trump.
