US House ethics panel clears Nunes in Russiagate classified leak probe

Intelligence chairman cleared of wrongdoing in House ethics probe

Both this House and the American people would undoubtedly benefit from such an act of transparency and accountability to bolster confidence that partisanship does not infect the Ethics Committee's investigations.

The House Ethics Committee announced Thursday that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes had not disclosed classified information or violated House rules when he publicly discussed foreign surveillance reports earlier this year, formally ending its investigation of him.

Bowing to pressure, however, he ceded control of the Intelligence Committee's investigation to Republican Reps.

The ethics committee said Thursday in a brief statement that it determined the Republican congressman did not disclose classified information in March, when he made a surprise announcement about the usa government picking up information about President Donald Trump's transition team during a surveillance sweep.

In a statement, the committee said it is closing the investigation into Nunes after consulting with experts on classification rules. Ron WydenRonald (Ron) Lee WydenDemocratic senator predicts Franken will resign Thursday Avalanche of Democratic senators say Franken should resign Lobbying world MORE (D-Ore.) told reporters in April.

Nunes had denied coordinating his disclosure of the information with the Trump administration.

When the ethics committee launched its Nunes inquiry in April, Nunes stepped back from his panel's probe of Russian meddling in the election, handing the day-to-day operations over to Rep. Michael Conaway (R., Texas), with the understanding he would be assisted by Reps. The surprise decision paves the way for the firebrand lawmaker to reassume chairing a House intelligence panel.

"In the course of this investigation, the Committee sought the analysis of Representative Nunes's statements by classification experts in the intelligence community,"the letter said". At the time, Nunes described the accusations against him as "entirely false and politically motivated" by "several leftwing [sic] activist groups". "I respect the ethics process, but I remain dismayed that it took an unbelievable eight months for the Committee to dismiss this matter".

I therefore call on the Ethics Committee to publicly release all its transcripts related to my case.
