#CorruptCongress: Devin Nunes Recuses Himself Under Cloud of Investigation into Potentially Illegal Actions

“It’s shameful that it took Congressman Devin Nunes this long to step aside, but now that we know he is under investigation for potentially illegal actions, it’s clear he had no choice,” said DCCC Spokesman Tyler Law. “This is yet another step towards the unraveling of Devin Nunes and this ethically-impaired House Republican Caucus.”

House Ethics Committee Launches Investigation of Devin Nunes for Spilling Secrets

Daily Beast

The House Ethics Committee announced Thursday it has opened an investigation into Rep. Devin Nunes for allegedly disclosing intelligence without authorization when he revealed last month that Trump transition team members were “unmasked.”

Nunes, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said last month he had come into posession of classified information showing Trump transition team members were “incidentally collected” by U.S. intelligence and improperly “unmasked.” Nunes made his claim, so far unsubstantiated, following a late-night trip to the White House where he reportedly met with senior administration officials who played a role in giving him classified information. (Nunes maintains they were not his original source.)
