Nunes Out

In the other big story of the day, Devin Nunes has, at least temporarily, removed himself from the House investigation of Trump's Russian connections:

In a surprise move, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) on Thursday stepped aside from the investigation into Russia’s interference in the presidential election.
Nunes said that he was relinquishing control, at least temporarily, because of complaints filed against him with the Office of Congressional Ethics that he said were brought by “several leftwing activist groups.” Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), the second-ranking Republican on the committee, will take over until the OCE’s ethics review is complete, with support from Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Tom Rooney (R-FL).
“The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of U.S. citizens and other abuses of power,” Nunes said in a statement.

But it wasn't about "several leftwing activist groups":

Don't expect things to get too much better right now, because he'll be replaced by this guy:

It does show, however, that if Trump goes down, Nunes is going to have his day in court, as well.
