Republican Congressman Devin Nunes is filing a $150 million lawsuit against The McClatchy Company, alleging a massive political conspiracy.

The filing in a Virginia state court Monday claims one of the news agency’s reporters — Mackenzie Mays — conspired with political operative Liz Mair.

Nunes claims their goal was to derail his oversight work into the Clinton campaign and alleged Russian interference.

The duo reportedly conspired to spread a variety of misleading smear campaigns, including one saying Nunes was involved with cocaine and underage prostitutes.

Nunes said the defendants abandoned their role as journalists for political and financial gain.
