Republican Congressman will leave the House of Representatives in 2022.
Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, will become chief executive of the new media company founded by former President Donald Trump, Trump Media & Technology Group. The company said that Nunes will take up his new position in January.
Nunes was first elected to the House of Representatives in 2002 and has just been re-elected to a new two-year term.
American media note that Nunes’ decision to leave Congress shocked many of his colleagues from the Republican Party. It was believed that if Republicans regained control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections, Devin Nunes would head the Budget Committee, which had been his dream for a long time.
