President Trump awarded Rep. Devin Nunes the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Monday.

Nunes (R-Calif.) is the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee and is well known for investigating misconduct in the FBI’s 2016 Russia investigation.

Another pro-Trump stalwart, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), also is expected to received the award in coming days, but a date has not been announced.

Nunes was heralded in a White House release for his work reviewing the FBI’s 2016 Russia investigation, which morphed into special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, which found no evidence that Trump conspired or “colluded” with Russia.

The White House said Nunes “pursued the Russia Hoax at great personal risk and never stopped standing up for the truth.”

“He had the fortitude to take on the media, the FBI, the Intelligence Community, the Democrat Party, foreign spies, and the full power of the Deep State,” the release said.

“Devin paid a price for his courage. The media smeared him and liberal activists opened a frivolous and unjustified ethics investigation, dragging his name through the mud for eight long months. Two dozen members of his family received threatening phone calls — including his 98 year old grandmother.”

“In 2017, Congressman Nunes launched an investigation into the Obama-Biden administration’s misconduct during the 2016 election — and began to unearth the crime of the century,” it said.

“As a result of his work, he discovered that the infamous Steele Dossier was funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. He found that a senior Justice Department attorney was married to one of the architects of the document. He learned that the Obama-Biden administration had issued Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants to spy on President Trump’s campaign and illegitimately unmasked several innocent spying victims for political gain.”

The awards ceremony for Nunes was not televised or open to the press, as is typical for the honor. Trump is scheduled to depart the White House on Monday for an evening rally in Georgia for a pair of Republican Senate candidates in runoff races.
