BREAKING: Devin Nunes Recuses Himself From Russia Investigation
While Devin Nunes had claimed he planned to move forward with the Russian Investigation, today it has been announced he is recusing himself from the investigation.
According to The Washington Post, in a statement, Nunes claims he made the decision to recuse himself due to “several leftwing activist groups” putting complaint into the Congressional Ethics Committee about him. He stated that these claims are “entirely false and politcally motivated” but decided to recuse himself while they are investigated.
In a statement from the Chairwoman and Ranking Member of the Committee On Ethics, it claimed that, “The Committee is aware of public allegations that Representative David Nunes may have made unauthorized disclosures of classified information, in violation of House Rules, law regulations, or other standards of conduct. The Committee… is investigating and gathering more information regarding these allegations.”
The Washington Post claims Nunes has said he wants to talk to the House Ethics Commitee “at the earliest possible opportunity in order to expedite the dismissal of these false claims.”
