House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Republican Counsel for the Intelligence Committee Stephen Castor haven't had an easy go of it during these two weeks of public impeachment hearings.

The hashtag #DevinNunesIsAnIdiot trended on Twitter for two days straight after the testimony of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and Vice Presidential Aide Jennifer Williams.

Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) has filed a $250 million lawsuit against Twitter and three of its users. Nunes accused Twitter of "shadow-banning conservatives," censoring opposing viewpoints, and "ignoring" complaints of abusive behavior on the social media platform. But it's his complaints about the site's users that's been garnering much of the attention.

The lawsuit names a user who goes by "Devin Nunes’ Mom." According to the complaint, this user is "a person who, with Twitter’s consent, hijacked Nunes’ name, falsely impersonated Nunes’ mother, and created and maintained an account on Twitter (@DevinNunesMom) for the sole purpose of attacking, defaming, disparaging and demeaning Nunes."
