House REPUBLICANS Votes to Severely Weaken the Office of Congressional Ethics
House Republicans voted to weaken the power of the ethics office that was set up last decade following corruption scandals that sent members of Congress to prison.

The move to weaken the Office of Congressional Ethics was not public until late Monday, when Representative Robert Goodlatte, Republican of Virginia and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, announced that the House Republican Conference had approved the change with no advance public notice or debate.

In its place, a new Office of Congressional Complaint Review would be set up within the House Ethics Committee, which before the creation of the Office of Congressional Ethics had been accused of ignoring credible allegations of wrongdoing by lawmakers

With No Warning, House Republicans Vote to Gut Independent Ethics Office

The surprising vote came on the eve of the start of a new session of Congress, where emboldened Republicans are ready to push an ambitious agenda on everything from health care to infrastructure, issues that will be the subject of intense lobbying from corporate interests. The House Republicansí move would take away both power and independence from an investigative body, and give lawmakers more control over internal inquiries.

It also came on the eve of a historic shift in power in Washington, where Republicans control both houses of Congress and where a wealthy businessman with myriad potential conflicts of interest is preparing to move into the White House.

You can vote the criminals in the Democratic Party out but you are still stuck with the criminals in the Republican Party.

It never ends.

Bullshit. This 'ethics' committee is just another tool of the Democrats and RINOs like Paul Ryan. Abolishing it is a genius move by Trump. THIS IS YUUUGE!
