TRUMP Pressure Causes Congress To REVERSE Course….WIN FOR TRUMP!

Attempting to weaken the Congressional Ethics Board was not the brightest move the GOPers could have made with the liberal media already in a frenzy before the inauguration.  But yes…that’s exactly what they did.  Now, they are backpeddling faster than a circus monkey after the liberal media took them to task.

USA Today reported:

One day before the new Congress convenes, House Republicans voted Monday night to rein in an independent ethics office that investigates potential wrongdoing by lawmakers.

The move guts a major piece of an ethics overhaul Congress undertook after several high-profile scandals sent lobbyist Jack Abramoff and others to federal prison.

The independent Office of Congressional Ethics, launched in 2008 to address concerns that the lawmaker-run House Ethics Committee failed to adequately police members of Congress, now would be subject to oversight by the House Ethics Committee, under the proposed rules package adopted by Republican lawmakers. The new rules also would bar investigators from reviewing anonymous complaints against lawmakers.

The Office of Congressional Ethics, known as OCE, would be renamed the “Office of Congressional Complaint Review.”

Here was President Trump’s take:

Haha! ….House Republicans Reverse Course…..

We need to have our representatives and senators on speed dial, just to keep it clear to them when Trump speaks or tweets the people are listening/ reading!
