Schiff announced moments ago that Newnez is stepping down from chairing the House Intelligence committee, in light of a newly launched Ethics Investigation on Newnez's inappropriate behavior in sharing evidence with suspects of the investigation (Whitehouse officials).

Now what? Lyin' Ryan gets to appoint a new coverer-upper in chief?

Hopefully a better one. If you're going to cover up multiple acts of serious treason, you need to be able to display at least a minimal level of confidence when doing so.

Yes, he gets to appoint the new guy... I think Senator Cotton.

Is he stepping down from the chair or just recusing himself from this investigation?

My understanding is that really isn't accurate.

Nunes temporarily stepped away from the Russia investigation, but remains the chairman. He will be awaiting a whitewashing of his unethical behavior by the Republican controlled House Ethics Committee. Paul Ryan voiced support for Nunes despite grossly violating a number of ethic rules and a law as well.

That should take about five minutes.
Those GOP clowns could produce a spotless record for Charles Manson if doing so served the interests of their owner-oligarchs.

Just the investigation... also, someone threw the word "temporarily" around... as if he is going to retake the chair on the investigation after whatever Ethics Committee investigation is over.... as if..
