U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement on the news that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-California, was stepping aside from the House investigation into whether Russia meddled in last year’s president election.  

“I continue to support the bipartisan investigations occurring in the House and the Senate. Based on what happened, it’s appropriate that Chairman Nunes steps away from this investigation. I remain confident that my colleagues in both the House and Senate will oversee professional, bipartisan investigations into Russia’s actions. We must follow the facts wherever they lead.”
