Trump Fills the Swamp

In The News

President Donald Trump isn't draining the swamp in Washington. He's shrouding it in a veil of secrecy and pumping in more slime…. Congress needs to step in. The level of potential conflicts posed by Mr. Trump's business holdings and his utter lack of concern for the ethical standards presidents of both parties have honored are mind boggling. Eighteen House Democrats, led by Rep. Elijah Cummings and including Maryland's Jamie Raskin and John Sarbanes, sent a letter to Mr. Shaub last week supporting his effort and urging him to publicly post whatever documents he receives, but the Republicans who control Congress need to use their authority to ensure the administration complies with the requests.
