April 6, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – In response to the news that Representative Devin Nunes, Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, had recused himself from the committee’s Russia probe, Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi issued the following statement:

“It’s fitting that Chairman Nunes removed himself from the intelligence committee’s Russia probe, but it’s only a minor correction to a fundamentally failed process. Congress has proven itself incapable of executing the thorough and non-partisan investigation of Russian interference these circumstances demand. We need to establish a 9/11-style independent commission to get to the bottom of Russian activities and the Trump administration’s ties to the Kremlin.”
