Today, the House of Representatives will vote on whether to retain Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House.
But before that, they plan on passing legislation that will make it even harder to hold Members of Congress accountable for criminal and unethical actions.
Yes, that is the planned first agenda item in Paul Ryan’s House of Representatives.
But he isn’t Speaker yet!
The Independent Office of Congressional Ethics was created to hold members of Congress accountable when they break the law or violate House ethics rules.
The office was founded on the principle of accepting anonymous whistleblower tips concerning Congressional lawlessness.
Today, the House will vote on legislation to gut this organization and stop them from accepting anonymous tips.
It looked like Paul Ryan was going to prevent this from moving forward, but like always, he has moved back into the establishment’s corner and now backs the legislation.
He isn’t draining the swamp… He’s filling it up!
If we’re going to drain the swamp, it is going to have to be without Paul Ryan!
