A government ethics watchdog group has filed a complaint against Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) after a report revealed that a House Intelligence Committee Republican leaked Sen. Mark Warner’s (D-Va.) text messages to Fox News.

The liberal watchdog group Campaign for Accountability announced Thursday it amended a previous complaint filed with the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) against Nunes and called on OCE to investigate the Intelligence chairman for “leaking information provided to the committee during the course of an official investigation.”

“Time and time again, Rep. Nunes and his staff leak confidential information without consequence,” the group’s executive director, Daniel Stevens, said in a statement. “What will it take for the House to step in and stop this clear abuse of authority?”

The group has previously filed complaints with OCE, including a similar complaint last month accusing Nunes of leaking information about Fusion GPS, the research firm tied to the controversial dossier connecting President Trump to Russia.
