The Inhofe report

PajamasMedia mentions a report arising through the action of Senator Inhofe and staff concerning ClimateGate issues:

[The] Minority Staff of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works believe the scientists involved may have violated fundamental ethical principles governing taxpayer-funded research and, in some cases, federal laws. In addition to these findings, we believe the emails and accompanying documents seriously compromise the IPCC -backed “consensus” and its central conclusion that anthropogenic emissions are inexorably leading to environmental catastrophes.

Within the PajamasMedia article:

Senator Inhofe’s announcement today appears to be the first time a member of Congress has formally called for an investigation into research misconduct and potential criminal acts by the scientists involved.

In passing IPBiz notes past investigations by Congr. Brad Miller into so-called bubble fusion and by Congr. John Dingell into
the Baltimore/O'Toole/Immanishi-Kari matter.
