    Official Trump Swamp Thread: Still Corrupt as Fuck

    US ethics office struggled to gain access to Trump Team, emails show
    6 Hours Ago
    NBC NEWS


    The office tasked with overseeing ethics and conflicts in the federal government struggled to gain access to leaders of the Trump transition team, and warned Trump aides about making decisions on nominees or blind trusts without ethics guidance, according to new emails obtained by MSNBC.

    Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub emailed Trump aides in November to lament that despite his office's repeated outreach, "we seem to have lost contact with the Trump-Pence transition since the election."

    Trump aides may also be risking "embarrassment for the President-elect," Shaub warned, by "announcing cabinet picks" without letting the ethics office review their financial information in advance.

    Won't it be easier to say who won't have a conflict of interest?

    It just blows my mind that you don't see Trump being just as corrupt. How many times has Trump been sued for fraud, the civil suits, civil rights suit, or sexual issues. He is no saint, don't get brainwashed...but you prob think that is all BS or OK.

    Please provide some specific examples with evidence beyond conjecture and innuendo.

    It would probably be easier to make a list of not fake sources.

    Fox News, WSJ, Breitbart, Tomi Lahren, Drudge, /r/TheDonald

    This is really relevant as most of Trump's cabinet will be coming from the private sector, where they never had to release their tax returns to the public. They are stalling, and they're going to get away with it, and the same people who bitched about no one having time to read the ACA, and insufficient immigrant vetting, and Presidents in the last year of their term not appointing SCJs will ignore it for cabinet appointees.

    Thanks for clarifying. Isn't newsworthy is very different than fake news. One deals with your opinion and the other with fact.

    Blows my mind how many people don't understand what fake means.

    Remember when conservatives at least paid lip service to ethics?

    I guess we're also now in a post-ethical world.

    Fake news is reporting something the reporter knows to be false. You can't just use the term anytime any story comes out that you disagree with.

    Trump ain't got no time for no Office of Government Ethics. He's got a country to make great. Either help out or get out of the way.
