    Cue the theme song for the Trump administration. It's that Queen song about biting the dust.

    Duncan Hunter shows no signs of quitting House, despite felony guilty plea

    So far, neither Republican nor Democratic leaders have pressured Hunter to leave office, although there is precedent for expelling members who don’t step down following a criminal conviction.

    Republican leaders asked both Collins and Hunter to give up their committee assignments following their indictments. But Hunter — who long claimed he was the victim of a political “witch hunt” — initially refused to relinquish his committee posts. He finally stepped down after GOP leadership started taking steps to forcibly remove him from his panels.

    The House Ethics Committee on Thursday informed Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) that he can no longer vote in the House of Representatives after pleading guilty to misusing campaign funds.

    The ethics panel sent Hunter a letter telling him that his guilty plea triggered a House rule saying that any member convicted of a crime that could receive a prison sentence of two or more years “should refrain from voting on any question at a meeting of the House … unless or until judicial or executive proceedings result in reinstatement of the presumption of innocence … or until the Member is reelected to the House after the date of such conviction.”

    “We emphasize in the strongest possible terms that if you violate the clear principles of this provision – that is, for example, by voting in the House – you risk subjecting yourself to action by this Committee, and by the House, in addition to any other disciplinary action that may be initiated in connection with your criminal conviction,” the panel wrote.
