    I am glad the Left is finally paying attention to ethics, now that an R is elected POTUS.

    Too bad they ignored ethics, morality, truth, honesty, transparency, rule of law, illegalities, the Constitution, warmongering, divisiveness, hatefulness, deceitfulness, lying, corruption, cronyism, wastefulness, ......................for the last eight years.

    Really? Probably the most scandal free eight years of any Presidency. But now that Putin's wife will soon be in the Oval office....well...hold onto your hat. He is draining the swamp by feeding us to the crocodiles...

    The Obama's had class in the WH. Trump will show us what classless means/

    No , it was the Pubs who gutted the independent ethics committee, its like sending your tax returns to yourself, gives them a license to do whatever, since well they are in charge.

    Say goodbye, fading fading, gone in 2018.

    Obama's secrets

    The Obama administration should rethink its outrageous proposal that would allow the government to lie to citizens about whether documents exist.

    Someone in Obama's very own administration violated that law, and it was utterly ignored, nothing was done, and he continued on.

    Partisans only care about the nation and ethics when power and politics are at stake. Any other time? They really don't give a fuck. Generally partisans are amoral pieces of shit that can't see the truth if it was smashed into their face.

    At least the 3rd thread on this non-story.

    Any effective "ethics office" would have been working double shifts over the last eight years.
