Don’t get me wrong. I can’t stand him. He stole the election from Coleman.
I get it JonNC.
You want “fair play” and I concur.
But their own intra-party colleagues may not want a drawn out ethics investigation when THEY are trying to get re-elected themselves.
Possibly they threaten to turn on him in the ethics meetings if he insists on going through with the ethics committee hearings process (even perhaps threatening him with loss of the lucrative Congressional retirement “benefits”).
I am not saying it’s the right way to carry this out. More of an observation.
Probably another reason for term limits.
