The new 115th Congress is almost here in the United States, and now, what they’ve done has got people talking. The 115th Congress has reportedly voted to effectively kill their ethics watchdog, essentially, giving them all the power they need to partake in corruption and nobody can do anything about it.
Their own independent watchdog will be placed under the House Ethics Committee and the new committee will not be allowed to take anonymous tips or make their investigations public. Effectively rendering America unknown to the activities of its own Congress.
Critics have pounced on the move citing that they “talk about draining the swamp but have now eliminated the only watchdog committee that covers their actions”.
