Sign the Petition to

Speaker Paul Ryan

Rep. Devin Nunes has surrendered his integrity, and potentially that of the House Intelligence Committee, by colluding in secret with the Trump Administration and briefing the White House on evidence that should have been shared with his fellow Committee members.

We can’t trust him to continue to lead this critical committee. Speaker Paul Ryan must put country before party, and remove Rep. Nunes from his chairmanship.

Signed,

The American people want elected officials that are held to high ethical standards -- and held accountable when they fall short. But House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has demonstrated repeatedly that he's more interested in covering up potential wrongdoing and Russian collusion by the Trump administration than doing his job.

His recent clandestine visit to the White House should be the final straw. By bringing "evidence" relevant to ongoing investigation into the Trump team's ties to Russia to Trump's team before sharing it with his colleagues, he's completely compromised his ability to conduct an impartial investigation.

That's why he must immediately be removed from his position as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Separation of powers is fundamental to our democracy, and we can't allow Nunes to have such close ties to an executive branch that his committee is currently investigating.

This is a major test for Speaker Paul Ryan. The House, under his leadership has a constitutional obligation to serve as an independent check on the president. If Ryan lets Nunes remain as Intelligence chair, he'll signal that he doesn't care about this monumental responsibility.

Please add your name today to tell Speaker Paul Ryan that ethics isn't just a talking point -- and demand that he put it into practice in his Congress. Demand that Rep. Nunes be removed as House Intelligence Chairman today.
