Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) is filing a counter-complaint against seven Democratic senators who asked for an investigation into him from the Ethics Committee. Hawley called their complaint, “frivolous complaint to accomplish impermissible partisan purposes.”
“These Senators have engaged in improper conduct that may reflect upon the Senate. The Committee should discipline these Members to ensure that the Senate’s ethics process is not weaponized for rank partisan purposes,” he added.
