House Ethics Committee Investigating Rep. Peter Roskam

NBC News

The U.S. House Committee on Ethics said Friday it plans to investigate Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Wheaton.

“The Chairman and Ranking Member of the Committee on Ethics have jointly decided to extend the matter regarding Representative Peter Roskam, which was transmitted to the Committee by the Office of Congressional Ethics on June 13, 2013,” a statement reads.

Roskam, considered a rising star in the Republican Party, is now the chief deputy whip of the House of Representatives, ranking him fourth among Republican leaders.

So far there’s no word on what the investigation is about, and Roskam’s office has not responded to calls and emails for comment.

The statement notes the Committee on Ethics will announce “its course of action in this matter on or before Wednesday, September 11, 2013.”
