Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich suggested that Congress rewrite ethics laws and "think up a whole new approach" to them to protect Donald Trump from running afoul of them once he becomes President. Gingrich told an interviewer that "traditional rules don't work" because "we've never seen this kind of wealth in the White House."

exactly what can we do to stop this train wreck? They know Nixon failed because he broke the rules, so they want to eliminate the rules that possibly could get Donnie into trouble. We are left with no check or balance to protect us. America showed so much promise, are we now done with common sense???
