Chairman Of House Intelligence Committee Recuses Himself From Russia Investigation
The House Ethics Committee announced that it decided that Devon Nunes violated the code of ethics when he revealed classified information provided by the White House. Nunes recused himself from the House Intelligence Committee's investigation into efforts by Russia to influence the outcome of the presidential election following the decision by the ethics committee. Until that time Nunes had refused that give up his chairmanship of the committees Russian investigation. That caused dissension on the committee and its investigation floundered. Members of the House investigation committee were cheered by the Nunes' recusal; it will resume its investigation of Russia's efforts to influence the election. The investigation will pursue possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian's with known connections to Trump surrogates.
