House ethics committee clears powerful GOP congressman

Washington (CNN) - The House Ethics Committee announced Tuesday that it has cleared Florida Republican Vern Buchanan in an investigation, finding no evidence that he purposely omitted information from the annual financial disclosure forms he is required to file.

But while the committee closed the case on this matter, it did not comment on other allegations involving Buchanan's business practices, his campaign finances, and accusations that he tried to try to stop a witness from talking. Buchanan remains the target of at least four congressional and federal investigations into those allegations.
