GOP senators who spoke with The Hill, including current members of the committee, had a nearly universal response when asked if they wanted to take over the Ethics Committee: Thanks, but no thanks.

This tells me that there is no Republican in the Senate who is willing to put up his level of ethics against the wall that Pres Trump presents.

This is significant. So very significant.

We are on our way to a dictatorship.

No one wants to talk about "The Emperor's New Clothes."


...When the emperor parades before his subjects in his new "clothes", no one dares to say that they do not see any suit of clothes on him for fear that they will be seen as stupid....

The site elves seem to have issues with the "Emperor's New Clothes" URL. Maybe it is the single quote...

Let me try again, this this I'll show it as text, not a url...

Change the spaces to https and you should be OK.

Fact is that no Republican would ever inquire about the ethics of another Republican. Now if the position was renamed to Chairman of the Committee on Democrats Ethics they would be standing in line to accept the job but not if it is a Committee to deal with the ethics of all Senators.
