when a public outcry that included a dressing-down from the elected president prompted the House of Representatives to backtrack on its plans to defang an ethics watchdog.

It was expecting to have been a grand beginning in which lawmakers set plans to enact Trump’s agenda of repealing Obamacare, cutting taxes, and rolling back financial and environmental regulations.

As Trump is going to work from January 20, Republicans will control both the White House and Congress for the first time since 2007.

The session was going well until a roar from Republicans in the House of Representatives in a closed-door meeting late on Monday to weaken the independent Office of Congressional Ethics, which is in charge of investigating ethics accusations against lawmakers.

Donald Trump, who campaigned on a pledge to “drain the swamp” and bring ethics reform to Washington, was not happy with the timing. Donald trump said “ with all that Congress has to work on, do they really have to make the weakening of the Independent Ethics Watchdog.

as unfair as it may be, their number one act and priority,” he added “Focus on tax reform, healthcare and so many other things of far greater importance!”

The ethics office was created in 2008 following several corruption scandals. Some lawmakers have charged in recent years that it has been too quick to investigate complaints from other partisan groups.

Lawmakers wanted to gain greater control of the watchdog, and introduce changes into a broader rules package, set to pass when the House started on Tuesday.
