BREAKING: THE FIRST GOP LAWMAKER CALLS ON DEVIN NUNES TO RECUSE HIMSELF

Rep. Walter Jones, North Carolina Republican, told The Hill that Mr. Nunes should step aside after his Monday acknowledgment of traveling to the White House grounds to see documents purportedly vindicating President Trump’s claims about the Obama administration’s surveillance of his campaign.

“How can you be chairman of a major committee and do all these things behind the scenes and keep your credibility? You can’t keep your credibility!” Mr. Jones told The Hill just off the House floor.

“The integrity of the committee looking into this has been tainted,” continued Mr. Jones, who has frequently clashed with the party leadership on civil liberties and intelligence issues.
