Himes says Rus­sia probe ‘back on track’

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — David Sherfin­ski

Rep. James A. Himes on Mon­day said the House in­tel­li­gence com­mit­tee’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion of Rus­sian in­volve­ment in the 2016 cam­paign is “back on track.”

“I think we’re all happy on the com­mit­tee that things seem to be back on track,” Mr. Himes, Con­necti­cut Demo­crat, said on CNN’s “New Day.”

He said he thinks Rep. K. Michael Con­away’s re­plac­ing Rep. Devin Nunes as the head of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion would take some of the scru­tiny off of the com­mit­tee.

“I think we’re back on track,” Mr. Himes said, say­ing both par­ties have put to­gether a wit­ness list.

Mr. Nunes, Cal­i­for­nia Repub­li­can and chair­man of the in­tel­li­gence com­mit­tee, re­cently an­nounced he was step­ping aside from lead­ing the Rus­sia probe amid on­go­ing ethics com­plaints.
