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.
Nunes has said he only temporarily stepped aside from the Russia probe pending the results of the ethics investigation. The ethics panel opened its investigation in April.
Texas Rep. Michael Conaway has led the intelligence committee’s Russia investigation since Nunes stepped aside.
