The liberals are probably kicking themselves right now!
Devin Nunes announced that he was stepping aside on the Russia probe. His decision came after liberals filed false “ethics” allegations against him. Nunes has denied these allegations, stating they were “entirely false and politically motivated”, but thought it was in the best interest of the probe to step down.
So liberals are thrilled. Their methods were working.
HOLD UP! Who’s taking over the probe now?
Well, it’s none other than Trey Gowdy.
All we can say is good luck Dems!
Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, will take the temporary lead on the investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the U.S. election. Gowdy, who represents Greenville and Spartanburg, will join Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Fla., in helping Conaway with the investigation.
“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,” Nunes said in a statement Thursday morning. “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.”
