Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), a stalwart ally of Donald Trump, will step down from his seat in Congress to become CEO of the ex-president’s Trump Media & Technology Group in 2022.
Nunes will leave the U.S. House of Representatives and will begin his new role as CEO of TMTG in January 2022, the company announced Monday.
Trump, chairman of TMTG, called Nunes “a fighter and a leader. He will make an excellent CEO of TMTG. Devin understands that we must stop the liberal media and Big Tech from destroying the freedoms that make America great. America is ready for Truth Social and the end to censorship and political discrimination.”
Nunes, in a statement provided by Trump’s company, added, “The time has come to reopen the internet and allow for the free flow of ideas and expression without censorship. The United States of America made the dream of the Internet a reality and it will be an American company that restores the dream. I’m humbled and honored President Trump has asked me to lead the mission and the world class team that will deliver on this promise.”
Since 2003, Nunes has served in the U.S. House of Representatives, currently serving California’s 22nd district. As Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee (2015-19), Nunes worked on important matters related to U.S. security including cybersecurity and information technology.
