|Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.)|
Republican Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, has temporarily stepped aside from the probe of Russian interference into our election, mainly, he said, because mean liberals have caused the House Ethics Committee to investigate allegations that “Nunes may have made unauthorized disclosures of classified information, in violation of House Rules, law, regulations, or other standards of conduct.”
The ethics probe is all about that Nunes midnight visit to the White House "grounds" to look at secret stuff that could then be divulged to the press in order to distract everyone from the Russian investigation.
Maybe the House Intelligence Committee can get something done now ... but not holding our breath. Trey Gowdy is one of the Republicans on the Intelligence Committee who'll be taking over for Nunes. Trey Gowdy also sits on the Ethics Committee. How convenient is that?
