Republicans have ditched a plan to gut the independent body that investigates political misconduct after a backlash.

The president-elect said to focus on tax reform, healthcare and so many other things of far greater importance.

The secretive move, which overshadowed the first day of the 115th Congress, was reversed in an emergency meeting.
