The House Ethics Committee, in its probe of sexual harassment allegations made against former Rep. Eric Massa (D-NY), has interviewed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Politico reports, likely about how much House leaders knew about the allegations and how they responded.
Politico also reports that the committee will release its report on the investigation soon.
“The speaker has always said that our office will fully cooperate with the committee,” Pelosi spokesman Nadeam Elshami said in a statement.
Massa resigned in March after reports surfaced that he had sexually harassed male staffers. (Full TPMmuckraker coverage here.)
The ethics investigation is reportedly focused on how leadership acted after hearing complaints about Massa’s behavior. A staffer for Pelosi heard last fall that some of Massa’s aides had concerns about his conduct, and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer was made aware of the accusations in February.
