The House Ethics Committee said Monday it is reviewing a congressional watchdog’s investigation into a trip nine lawmakers took to Azerbaijan in 2013.
In a lengthy statement, the committee said it was giving itself an additional 45 days to review the investigation undertaken by the Office of Congressional Ethics, or OCE, and provided to the committee in early May. The committee will make its next public statement on the subject no later than August 6, it said, at which point it will likely announce its findings and release the details of the OCE’s probe, as outlined by the committee’s procedures.
The lawmakers involved are Reps. Jim Bridenstine (R., Okla.), Yvette Clarke (D., N.Y.), Danny Davis (D., Ill.), Ruben Hinojosa (D., Texas), Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas), Leonard Lance (R., N.J.), Michelle Lujan Grisham (D., N.M.), Greg Meeks (D., N.Y.) and Ted Poe (R., Texas), the committee said.
