House GOP caves on ethics issues

Truth Dig - Less than 24 hours after the House GOP voted to essentially eliminate the Office of Congressional Ethics, Republican lawmakers announced a reversal of the move. CNN reported:
In an emergency meeting just before noon Tuesday, House Republican lawmakers voted to strip the move on the ethics agency from a package of rules that is due to be voted upon later in the House of Representatives. Their decision to adopt the measure Monday night had opened splits in the GOP and put House Speaker Paul Ryan and Trump on opposite sides of a key issue on the first day of the 115th Congress.
