The House Intelligence Committee’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election will not be a partisan witch hunt

The House Select Committee on Intelligence is expected to not investigate the election’s outcome.

A committee spokesperson confirmed the move Thursday morning to Politico.

The committee will be led by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), who was the first Republican to call on the House Intelligence panel to investigate the Russian election interference.

Nunes has called on the committee to investigate what he has called “the biggest national security threat to the United States since World War II” and the Trump campaign.

Democrats and others have argued that the House intelligence panel is a partisan investigation, but the House Republicans’ decision not to investigate it suggests they see the probe as nonpartisan.
