I realize at this point it is both very rude and a terrible career move to keep say "I told you so".
And yet, somehow, once again I feel compelled to mention...
From TBOTP today (hat-tip to Brother Charlie Pierce):
“We’ve never seen this kind of wealth in the White House, and so traditional rules don’t work,” Gingrich said Monday during an appearance on NPR’s "The Diane Rehm Show" about the president-elect’s business interests. “We’re going to have to think up a whole new approach.”
And should someone in the Trump administration cross the line, Gingrich has a potential answer for that too.
“In the case of the president, he has a broad ability to organize the White House the way he wants to. He also has, frankly, the power of the pardon,” Gingrich said. “It’s a totally open power. He could simply say, ‘Look, I want them to be my advisers. I pardon them if anyone finds them to have behaved against the rules. Period. Technically, under the Constitution, he has that level of authority.”
From your humble scrivener, on November 9, 2016:

What happens when Trump pardons all of his goons and henchmen?
What happens when Trump pardons himself?
You know, at the rate I'm going, I'll probably never get invited to the Kool Kids parties:
