Rep. Devin Nunes is suing Twitter after his account was temporarily banned for tweeting Russian propaganda.
Devin Nunes Has Filed A Bogus Lawsuit Against Twitter
Here is the Nunes lawsuit:

The lawsuit is a cheap political stunt designed to pander to the conservative persecution complex. It is also a way for Trump’s House toadie to take attention away from the avalanche of bad news that has buried this president.
Nunes’s lawyer cried to Fox News, “Twitter is a machine. It is a modern-day Tammany Hall. Congressman Nunes intends to hold Twitter fully accountable for its abusive behavior and misconduct.”
The Real Reason Why Devin Nunes Was Banned From Twitter
Rep. Nunes’s account was caught up in a Twitter purge of Russian bot and fake news spreading account. In other words, Rep. Nunes was banned from Twitter for spreading Russian propaganda and fake news.
This is not the targeting of a political ideology, but an indictment of the Trump Republican Party’s embrace of fake news and Russian propaganda. The lawsuit should be laughed out of court, but if Nunes wants to go there, he should be forced to testify about the Russian propaganda and fake news that he has been tweeting.
If Nunes wants to throw down with Twitter, he better be careful, because what he is wishing for could backfire on the entire Republican Party.
