The website pushes a bogus narrative about the Russia investigation and certain Democratic lawmakers. For instance, the website singles out Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA) for child-like criticism. Lieu is a frequent critic of both Trump and Nunes.
Nune's website is currently down, likely due to the increased traffic generated by news reports about its existence.
Resembling a local, conservative news site, “The California Republican” is classified on Facebook as a “media/news company” and claims to deliver “the best of US, California, and Central Valley news, sports, and analysis.” But the website is paid for by Nunes’ campaign committee, according to small print at the bottom of the site. Leading the home page this week: A photograph of Nunes over the headline: “Understanding the process behind #ReleaseTheMemo.”
The stories have headlines that paint Democrats, particularly critics of President Donald Trump, in an unflattering light.
“CNN busted for peddling fake news AGAIN!,” “California’s budget future isn’t as good as it looks” and “Billions of dollars later, Democrats and the LA Times start to see the light on high-speed rail.” In a jab at fellow California Rep. Ted Lieu — an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump — the site titled one blurb, “Dem CA Rep roasted on CNN, proceeds to make a fool of himself.”
