Rep. Devin Nunes announced on Thursday that he would be stepping away from the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia investigation.
Nunes has provided important Republican presence in the investigation, but felt it was necessary to step down due to the constant attacks and false complaints he was receiving from the liberal media.
“Several leftwing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics. The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the improper unmasking of the identities US citizens and other abuses of power.”
Rep. Mike Conaway is now expected to lead the investigation.
Here is Nune’s statement:

The Democrats managed to secure another victory through their cry baby tactics. Sadly for them, they are wasting their time as the investigation will only prove the Trump administration is innocent and that it is Hillary Clinton and her cronies who are the ones that have something to hide.
