This is just getting better and better. The oversight came about after lobbyist Jack Abramoff got convicted of bribery a few years ago. The House now wants to operate in a more secretive way without the obstruction of ethics review by an independent source. You can't make this stuff up.
Interesting that Trump has already made a pretty negative statement about the action from his "own" party. Not particularly surprising, to be sure, as he has never been buddy-buddy with Republicans and it will be very interesting to see the result of Trump being Trump instead of Trump being another party flak.
Let the games begin!
LOL That didn't last long, did it?

Yeah. I guess they thought nobody was watching. They have by their own accounts made it known that it is bad legislation. I guess they will come back to this when the time is right and the negative spin on its powers are ripe.
Well, I must admit, I'm impressed with Trump's role in the reversal of this action. There may be a ray of hope after all. We'll have to see what happens next. The Republicans do seem awfully full of themselves to have started this way. But the one thing about Congress is that they are often their own worst enemies.
I learned months ago to hear what Trump has to say first, before anything by the bureaucrats' little circus acts. I believe Trump means what he says.

To the astonishment of few, the Buffoon-In-Chief has refused to release a Democratic memo debunking the Nunes memo. What else could he do? Nunes refused to answer questions about his staff colluding with the WH on his memo as well. Why? The answer is obvious to those who have seen Nunes in action...

"One of the many underappreciated legacies of the Obama administration has been its widespread implementation of pro-consumer policies. Under the outgoing president’s leadership, multiple executive branch departments and independent agencies have enacted laws, rules and regulations designed...
