The left takes Rep. Nunes through ethics probes on an ongoing basis, mostly to get him to recuse himself or just discredit him. There is a renewed call for yet another probe. So far, none of the complaints have been ruled valid.
Democrat Rep. Smith is recommending the filing of an ethics complaint and you can assume that is a dog whistle to the leftist groups who file these complaints.
The Hill reports the House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith (D-Wash.) said Saturday that top House Intelligence Committee Republican Devin Nunes (Calif.) should face an ethics probe due to accusations that he met with a former Ukrainian prosecutor who is central to the impeachment inquiry.
Asked in an MSNBC interview whether Nunes should be investigated, Smith said, “Quite likely, without question.”
He claims, without evidence, other than the word of the lawyer for a man about to go on trial, that Nunes scrapped a plan to travel to Ukraine to dig up dirt on Joe Biden.
Some might find Mr. Smith is affected and tough to listen to:

Smith seems to believe that Republicans are covering up for the President. Meanwhile, they have launched an impeachment inquiry without a crime and only presented hearsay evidence.
It is easy enough to prove.
Even if it were true, so what? He can go to Ukraine and talk with whoever he wants.
It’s not likely Democrats believe he was going to Ukraine. It’s just more harassment. Rep. Nunes is a target because he is relentless in exposing what he sees as the truth.

If you want to know about Democrats threatening Ukrainians to dig up dirt, here they are: Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) threatened to withhold military and foreign aid from Ukraine.
The three sent a letter on May 4, 2018, to Ukraine’s prosecutor general, Yuriy Lutsenko, expressing concern at the closing of four investigations they said were critical to the Mueller probe.
Also, there is definitely evidence the Democrats and Ukraine colluded to assist Hillary’s campaign in 2016. It’s not a conspiracy theory. Two men were convicted of it.
Democrats are gaslighting us and once Republicans brought it to the public’s attention that they were gaslighting us, Democrats claimed they were the ones being gaslighted — which is more Democrat gaslighting.
Correction: We said the accusation is Devin Nunes traveled to Ukraine, but the accusation is he scrapped a plant to travel to Ukraine.
