REPORT: Top Democrats Are Dragging Their Feet To Delay Investigation Into Obama Leaks

Democrats have finally found an investigation they have no interest in pursuing aggressively. Naturally, their actions are all about protecting the Obama administration.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

Top Dems Slow Rolling Ethics Probe to Delay Investigation Into Obama Leaks

Democratic congressional leaders on the House Ethics Committee are charged with intentionally dragging out an investigation into Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes in what multiple sources described as an attempt to influence the Intelligence Committee’s sensitive Russia probe and promote their own political careers, according to multiple sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

Nunes (R., Calif.), chair of the House Intelligence Committee, which is handling the Russia probe, was sidelined from his leadership role in the probe more than three months ago after the Ethics Committee began investigating allegations that he disclosed classified information in comments alleging Obama administration officials had accessed classified intelligence reports in order to gain information on Trump associates…

One veteran congressional adviser who works closely with Congress on the leaks investigation told the Free Beacon the languishing ethics probe is shaping up to be little more than a partisan political ploy.

“This is what happens when Republicans trust Democrats to play fair. Everyone knows Nunes is squeaky clean, and lawmakers involved in intelligence know it most of all,” said the source, who could only discuss the sensitive matter on background. “So Democrats promised Republicans they’d do a quick probe, find whatever, and everyone would go back to work. But Democrats don’t want Congress to get back to work, and they also like keeping keep Nunes in limbo, and so they’re holding everything up.”

The Russia investigation is a sham intended to help Democrats. Yet when it comes to investigating real leaks by members of the Obama administration they have no interest.

Who could have guessed?
