Rep. Renzi steps down from panel after FBI raid
Rep. Rick Renzi (R-Arizona), the co-chairman of the Congressional Native American Caucus, stepped down from the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday after FBI agents raided a family business in Arizona.

Renzi said the FBI took documents from the Patriot Insurance Agency, which is owned by his wife. He said he is cooperating with the investigation.

The nature of the investigation hasn't been disclosed but news reports say it could related to a land swap involving a former Renzi partner or a Pentagon contract involving Renzi's father.
