SCOOP: White House NSC's senior counterterrorism director, Kash Patel, just sued Politico, saying he was falsely accused of briefing President Trump on Ukraine. The suit also takes numerous shots at Adam Schiff. Highly unusual, to say the least https://t.co/6fdVZ1pCxk

White House official Kash Patel, who is a senior counterterrorism official on the National Security Council (NSC), filed the lawsuit in Virginia court in which he says Schiff “weaponized the media” to advance his impeachment agenda.
In the lawsuit, Patel alleges:
Defendants abandoned all journalistic integrity and violated their own code of ethics in order to further the conspiracy with Schiff. Defendants did not seek truth; report truth; minimize harm; act independently; and they most certainly were not transparent.
