Republicans back off gutting of House ethics office after critical Trump tweet [View all]

By Washington Post Staff January 3 at 12:18 PM

House Republicans abruptly reversed course and pulled language to weaken the independent Office of Congressional Ethics and subject it to internal House rule.

The decision came after President-elect Donald J. Trump tweeted that the move should perhaps not be the House GOPís first priority.

This is a developing story. It will be updated.
