Man, the DC swamp is crazier than a bathhouse of CNN reporters and Barack Obama chilling in their mud baths.
House Intelligence Chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes is stepping away from the Russian probe into their actions during the 2016 General elections.
Nunes cites liberal activist groups have file accusations against him, and even though they are false, he believes it’s in the best interests of the committee to step away.
Rep. Mike Conaway, Rep. Trey Gowdy, and Tom Rooney will take over panel’s investigation into Russia and the 2016 election temporarily. Nunes will keep his other responsibilities as chairman.

Washington, D.C. — House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes today issued the following statement:
“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 truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of U.S. citizens and other abuses of power.
Despite the baselessness of the charges, I believe it is in the best interests of the House Intelligence Committee and the Congress for me to have Representative Mike Conaway, with assistance from Representatives Trey Gowdy and Tom Rooney, temporarily take charge of the Committee’s Russia investigation while the House Ethics Committee looks into this matter.
I will continue to fulfill all my other responsibilities as Committee Chairman, and I am requesting to speak to the Ethics Committee at the earliest possible opportunity in order to expedite the dismissal of these false claims.”
