One of Rep. Adam Schiffs biggest allies in the U.S. House is facing ethics charges.
According to Breitbart, House Republicans are in the process of filing ethics charges against Democrat Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney for allegedly launching vicious attacks against Rep. Devin Nunes during a heated exchange in a committee meeting.
Maloney Facing Ethics Charges
Rep. Rick Crawford from Arkansas told officials at Breitbart that Rep. Maloney broke ethics violations during a committee meeting on Wednesday morning in a heated exchange with Devin Nunes. As a result, Republicans are pushing for ethics charges to be made against the Democrat.
Crawford told Breitbart that Maloney launched a “rude” and “childish” attack against Devin Nunes in the middle of a committee meeting, which goes against Chamber rules:
“This wasn’t on the agenda for the meeting. It was really inappropriate in my opinion, and pretty childish.”
According to the report, standing rules at the House of Representatives make it an offense to attack members during a meeting. It’s especially wrong when they falsely accuse a member of lying or hurl insults.
As a result, Republicans are taking the appropriate action necessary to file an ethics complaint. Republican lawmakers say when the transcript becomes available in the coming days, GOP lawyers may seek formal action against him by the House Ethics Committee.
Nunes Is A Nightmare For Democrats
Maloney’s attack against Nunes comes just weeks after Nunes bashed Democrats for launching baseless conspiracy theories to undermine President Donald Trump.
Nunes especially attacked Democrats who keep bringing up the now-disproven “Russia collusion” conspiracy:
“They never stop. The Democrats never stop with conspiracy theories and politicization of intelligence. They just read through intelligence reports to decide what they can leak to tie something back to Russia.”
Nunes then proceeded to point out that Democrats are the real ones who collude with Russia:
“The irony of this is they’re the ones who colluded with Russians. It wasn’t us. In 2016, they’re the ones who did it. You can’t even make this up. It’s so wacko.”
