Rep. Devin Nunes cleared by House Ethics Committee after complaint he divulged classified informatio

Source: Los Angeles Times

by Sarah D. Wire

The House Ethics Committee on Thursday cleared House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes of Tulare of any wrongdoing after a complaint that he had disclosed classified information related to the Houses Russia investigation.

When the complaint was filed, Nunes said he would step away from leading the Houses investigation into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election, though he did not formally recuse himself.

In a statement, the Ethics Committee said experts it interviewed determined that the information Nunes disclosed was not classified.

Based solely on the conclusion of these classification experts that the information that Representative Nunes disclosed was not classified, the committee will take no further action and considers this matter closed, it states.

1. Why would we expect anything else?



They are playing for high stakes. It's as if this is their last chance with the hope if they get voted out of office, they can still have enough to block any attempts to reverse their destruction of the nation.

15. The Chairman is a republican, but the membership is equally divided

There are the same number of Democrats as Republicans.

8. Well, based on that decision

I suppose had Franken's case had gone to the Ethics Committee, he'd have had a bad time of it.

9. I've been wondering about that myself.

Here's a link to what Wikipedia says about it:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_House_Committee_on_Ethics

rethugs tried to gut the committee in Jan, 2017

http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/02/politics/office-of-congressional-ethics-oversight-of-ethics-committee-amendment/index.html

I guess even tho' they were unable to get rid of it completely, they somehow rendered it ineffective when applying ethics to rethugs

14. Franken was in the Senate so it wouldn't have gone to the House Ethics Committee

And the Senate Ethics Committee, like the House Ethics Committee has the same number of Republicans and Democrats.

13. Prolly askairt

that if they ruled against nunes, the pukes would shut them down.

See: npr after pukes began threatening to shut them down and gradually cutting their funding--can't have any sort of independent voice out there. Turned into "neutered public radio."

16. Nasty, slimy, treacherous dirtbag. Can't wait until he finally has nowhere to hide from his deeds.

He doesn't have an honest bone in his gooey body.
