The Office of Congressional Ethics has recommended that the Ethics Committee conduct a full probe into the case. The Ethics Committee is expected to announce as early as today that it will take another 45 days to review the OCE recommendation. OCE originally forwarded its recommendation to the Ethics Committee shortly before the Christmas holiday.
