WASHINGTON D.C. — U.S. House Intelligence Committee Chairman, Devin Nunes (R, California) has recused himself from the Russia investigation.

Nunes announced on Thursday that, at least temporarily, he has recused himself from any and all matters related to the House Intelligence Committee investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election. The announcement comes in the wake of the revelation that House investigators are looking into ethics allegations that have been claimed against him. According to Nunes, the reason that he hasrecused himself was due to left wing activist groups that filed multiple complaints concerning his leadership with the Office of Congressional Ethics. Nunes rejected all allegations as politically motivated falsehoods and insisted that he would only be recusing himself from the investigation while the House Ethics Committee delves into his matters. Many Democrats have been calling for Nunes to recuse himself and voiced their appreciation for his decision.

"The important work of investigating the Russian involvement in our election never subsided, but we have a fresh opportunity to move forward in the unified and nonpartisan way that an investigation of this seriousness demands," said Adam Schiff (D, California), the ranking Democratic member on the House Intelligence Committee. Schiff commended Nunes for his decision.

The House Ethics Committee also released a statement on Thursday announcing thatit had agreed to investigate the allegations filed against Nunes.

"[The House Ethics Committee will investigate connections between Nunes and] unauthorized disclosures of classified information, in violation of House Rules, law, regulations, or other standards of conduct."
