Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tom Rooney (R-FL) released the following statement in response to Speaker Paul Ryan’s announcement that Chairman Devin Nunes would be temporarily stepping aside from the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia investigation and Rooney would be among three Republicans taking the lead:

“I am confident that our Committee will continue to conduct an thorough, bipartisan investigation into this matter. I look forward to working with Congressman Mike Conaway (R-TX) and Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to follow the facts where they lead us and report our findings to the American people as soon as possible. I will not be giving further comments until the investigation is concluded in order to protect the sanctity of the process.”
