Via Joe.My.God.: Rep. Devin Nunes (R-California) is being investigated for unauthorized disclosure of classified intel .
Per The New York Times, he will step aside from heading up Russia investigation:
Mr. Nunes said that his decision came after “left-wing activist groups” filed accusations against him with the Office of Congressional Ethics. He called the charges “entirely false and politically motivated,” but he said it was in the committee’s best interests for him to temporarily step aside from the investigation.
Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, the panel’s top Democrat, praised Mr. Nunes’s decision, saying it was made in the “best interests of the investigation.”
“It will allow us to have a fresh start moving forward,” he told reporters.
