More musical chairs everyone gets a turn in the cameras but nothing ever happens.
Following pressure from Democrats and Republicans, House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes will step aside from the investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.
The Californian Republican congressman said he is stepping down due to “entirely false” accusations filed against him with the Office of Congressional Ethics.
The decision will also affect the committee’s probe into alleged possible interactions between Moscow and Trump campaign staffers.
The probe will now be conducted by congressional members Michael Conaway (R, Texas), Trey Gowdy (R, South Carolina), and Tom Rooney (R, Florida). Rep. Gowdy is chairman of a House Select Committee which carried out the investigation into the 2012 Benghazi attack.
Declaring the charges against him “false claims,” Nunes said he intends to speak with the Ethics Office as soon as possible.
