Last quote by Norm Eisen

Given the nature of the meeting, it stretches credibility to say he simply forgot it when he initially filled out his forms. That puts him on the hook for false statements liability, possibly. At any rate, it increases his exposure. The pattern of omission by Mr Kushner and others in Donald Trump's circle of their Russia connections increasingly points to a consciousness of guilt.feedback

He's putting the bully in the bully pulpit to attack this company on dubious factual assertions in order to promote his daughter. Literally everything he does has this miasma of conflict around it. This is unfair business practices. There's a serious legal question. There are statutes across the country, including a very tough one in California.feedback

It is not allowed for a government employee to use your public office for private gain. And by doing this ad, I have never seen anything like it. It's a violation of the rule. Pure and simple.feedback

This email sheds light on why the Trump nominees are, as a whole, the most conflicted group that I recall. That problem starts at the top, with the president's own unresolved conflicts.feedback

In any rule of law system, any body of laws – not just the government ethics laws that govern conflicts of interest on related subjects – there always are going to be grey areas. There's no doubt about it. Rule of law systems are imperfect in part, because… you're trying to build a set of behavioral codes on top of abstract principles of right and wrong. And that's tricky to do.feedback

What we mean by ethical in the government ethics context is that there is a body of laws that govern what you can and cannot do, with respect to your conflicts of interest and other personal financial interests. In government, when you're a government servant, that's what we mean by government ethics.feedback

Of course, there's also the question of government morals, What's right and wrong to do?' We hope that the government ethics rules track the rules of political morality. What we've tried to do is codify abstract principles of right and wrong into a set of conflicts rules for government officials, starting with the Constitution and then the statutes and regulations as well. That's what we mean by government ethics.feedback

[Trump's] going to be in violation of the Constitution, and I don't believe that American people or the courts will stand by for that idly. So there'll be litigation.feedback

In the case of Donald Trump, he wants to make it into a grey area, or really he wants to make it into a black-and-white area that conflicts law doesn't apply to him. He's correct that there's a lot of black-and-white, but if the black-and-white of it cuts against him, the conflict does apply. There can be no dispute that the rules in the Constitution, for example, which prohibit presidents from taking foreign government cash and other benefits, so called emoluments, apply to the president.feedback

Jan 11 2017

Mr. Trump's ill-advised course will precipitate scandal and corruption.feedback
