Ethics panel clears Nunes of al­leged leak

The Dallas Morning News - - Nation & World -

WASH­ING­TON — The House Ethics Com­mit­tee has cleared the chair­man of the House in­tel­li­gence com­mit­tee on a com­plaint that he may have leaked clas­si­fied in­for­ma­tion.

The de­ci­sion paves the way for Rep. Devin Nunes of Cal­i­for­nia to again lead the in­tel­li­gence panel’s probe into Rus­sian med­dling in the 2016 elec­tion.

The Ethics Com­mit­tee said in a brief state­ment Thurs­day it de­ter­mined the Repub­li­can con­gress­man did not dis­close clas­si­fied in­for­ma­tion while talk­ing about in­for­ma­tion he had re­ceived on a clan­des­tine trip to the White House.
