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

The lawmakers' surprise vote to strip the Office of Congressional Ethics of its independence prompted public uproar and a dressing down from Donald Trump.

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.
