The May 18 front-page ar­ti­cle “Ryan swore Repub­li­cans to se­crecy”

The Washington Post Sunday - - SUNDAY OPINION -

said that a tape of a con­gres­sional meet­ing held by House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) and as­so­ciates re­veals that Mr. Ryan asked ev­ery­one present to pledge se­crecy about what was dis­cussed — Rus­sian in­flu­ence in U.S. elec­tions. So now mem­bers of the House play at be­ing the Mafia? What does it take for peo­ple of elected of­fice to hold al­le­giance to coun­try and Con­sti­tu­tion above all else? The men and women elected to these high of­fices swore an oath that ap­pears to mean noth­ing to them.
