Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., is under investigation by the Justice Department.
The House Ethics Committee released a statement saying it was deferring consideration of the matter after being asked to do so by the Justice Department, a move that signals that department is running its own probe.
The committee said it first received a referral on Hunter from the Office of Congressional Ethics last August. The committee voted unanimously on Wednesday to defer the matter after being asked to do so by the Justice Department.

Whoa! Isn’t he one of the good guys?
I want to thank you for keeping FR alive on the main forum page. The girls underground thread is killing the main page. I appreciate your stories.
The unethical Ethics Committee.
What did Hunter do? Hock a big green loogie on a Muslim ?
Isn’t Duncan Hunter from California? Where are the California people on this?
What did he do, does anyone know? I’m thinking maybe he said he stood for something that President Trump said or did or doing and the libs don’t like it...remember they want us gone...
Are ANY democrats under “investigation” for anything??????
Thank you, we women need to stick together!!! ^5
Supposed to have spent $600 in campaign funds on airfare to fly a pet rabbit
Who f’ing CARES?
Say it ain’t so...
So this started last year under Obama and Lynch?
Well with the drop of yesterday’s news, you are probably correct...DOJ getting kinda pushy aren’t they? Isn’t it about time President Trump fires Comey and the crew???
Didn’t he insist that awful painting of cops potrayed as pigs be removed from the house gallery?
Interesting. So I guess AG Sessions is not doing nothing - he’s just not saying what he’s investigating unless it bumps into an investigation somewhere else.
He has a safe district in east San Diego County. He “inherited” his seat from his father who was caught up in the House check kiting scandal about 20 years ago. Those guys cannot manage their own affairs. Sloppy expense reports, co-mingling campaign funds with personal expenses, etc. In the private sector he would have been fired by now.
Reading the link is helpful.
The whole “case” has been delayed, by a formal request from the Justice Department to the “Ethics Committee”, before they even take up any concern about the allegations. The Committee agreed to the delay request.
Something about a $50,000 dollar loan and the campaign fund.
Could be a simple error, could be trouble, could be innocent mistake, could be flagrant violation.
I don’t have a clue. Duncan Hunter always seemed squeeky clean, solid conservative, slightly more than a Trump Supporter.
It’s largely Military town and large illegal immigrant community, has manufacturing, biotech, and heavily into communications the Chargers suck and the Padres suck.
