Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the Ranking Member of the House Permanent Select Committee, released the following statement:

 “Today, Chairman Nunes announced that he will be stepping aside from the Russia investigation and passing the reins to Representative Mike Conaway.  I know this was not an easy decision for the Chairman, with whom I have worked well for many years.  He did so in the best interests of the committee and I respect that decision.  I look forward to my continued work with the Chairman on the whole host of other important issues that our committee oversees every day, in our effort to make sure that the country is protected and our civil liberties are maintained.  With respect to Representative Conaway, I look forward to joining with him and putting our investigation fully back on track.  The important work of investigating the Russian involvement in our election never subsided, but we have a fresh opportunity to move forward in the unified and nonpartisan way that an investigation of this seriousness demands.”
