The House Ethics Committee announced on Tuesday, the committee will investigate Rep. Tom Malinowski’s (D-NJ) hundreds of stock transactions that allegedly violated the federal STOCK Act.
The committee’s chairman Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) and ranking member Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN) agreed to investigate Malinowski’s alleged violation of the federal STOCK Act.
The two wrote that pursuant to the House rules, they “have jointly decided to extend the matter regarding Representative Tom Malinowski, which was transmitted to the committee by the office of congressional ethics on July 23, 2021.”
The release noted that it does not indicate the committee believes Malinowski violated anything yet, but it will investigate the “subject of the matter.”
“The committee will announce its course of action in this matter on or before Thursday, October 21, 2021,” the release said.
