Texas Republican Rep. Troy Nehls has come under a House Ethics Committee investigation, the panel confirmed Tuesday.

The panel indicated that it had received information from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE), though it did not elaborate on the nature of the allegations. They further confirmed the panel would decide on how to proceed by May 10.

"I look forward to assisting the House Committee on Ethics inquiry into my campaign’s finances. My campaign has complied with every Federal Election Commission (FEC) law, and my books are open," Nehls said, according to The Hill.

"We are fully cooperating with the committee," he told Axios.

Nehls first won election to Congress in 2020. Throughout his tenure, he has been a staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump and even floated appointing him Speaker of the House following the removal of Kevin McCarthy from the post last year.

"The Committee notes that the mere fact of a referral or an extension, and the mandatory disclosure of such an extension and the name of the subject of the matter, does not itself indicate that any violation has occurred, or reflect any judgment on behalf of the Committee," the press release stated.
