Somebody’s watching the watchman. The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee has stepped aside, albeit temporarily, from a probe into suspected Russian meddling in the U.S. election after repeatedly refusing to recuse himself. The California congressman explained that he’s under investigation because multiple ethics complaints were filed against him — charges Nunes dismissed as politically motivated. Critics had been pressuring him to step aside after the former Trump campaign adviser shared classified information with the White House. GOP Rep. Mike Conaway will now fill Nunes’ role heading the Russia investigation.
