Nature of the Review
Rep. Mike Kelly’s wife purchased stock in Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. on April 29, 2020. If this stock purchase was based upon confidential or material nonpublic information that Rep. Kelly learned during his official job duties, then Rep. Kelly may have violated House rules, standards of conduct, and federal law.
The Board recommended that the Committee further review the above allegation concerning Rep. Kelly because there is substantial reason to believe that this April 29, 2020 stock purchase was based upon confidential information that Rep. Kelly learned during his official job duties.
On October 21, 2021, the Committee on Ethics released a statement indicating it would continue to gather information necessary to complete its review. The Committee published the OCE report and findings and announced the allegations would be fruther reviewed pursuant to Committee Rule 18(a).
