President-elect Donald Trump has promised to drain the swamp, and earlier today he sent a stark reminder to House Republicans that they’re a part of the very swamp he’s trying to drain.

On Monday, GOP members of Congress announced they’d be voting to weaken an independent ethics committee, which immediately sent the liberal media into a frenzy. Leftist hypocrisy aside, the move sent the wrong signal to Americans, who just overwhelmingly voted to end corruption and politics as usual in Washington, and apparently ticked off the incoming president.

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.”

Upon hearing the news, Trump took to his favorite medium to chew out Republicans for wasting their time on such trivial issues when they have so much other work to be doing.

Apparently, GOP members of Congress took note, and after being publicly shamed for their shady antics, they reversed course on the idea.

That’s what real leadership looks like.
