Deputy National Security Advisor Powell’s Financial Disclosure
The White House doesn’t post financial disclosures of its staff, so they have to be requested. A week ago I asked for the disclosure filed by Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategy Dina Powell, and yesterday afternoon the White House sent it. Before becoming a Deputy NSA, Powell was an economic adviser to Trump and an all-around adviser to Ivanka, two roles that she reportedly still plays to some degree.
Note: Title 1 of the Ethics in Government Act of 1978, as amended, 5 U.S.C. app. § 105(c), states that: It shall be unlawful for any person to obtain or use a report: (A) for any unlawful purpose; (B) for any commercial purpose, other than by news and communications media for dissemination to the general public; (C) for determining or establishing the credit rating of any individual; or (D) for use, directly or indirectly, in the solicitation of money for any political, charitable, or other purpose. The Attorney General may bring a civil action against any person who obtains or uses a report for any purpose prohibited in paragraph (1) of this subsection. The court in which such action is brought may assess against such person a penalty in any amount not to exceed $11,000. Such remedy shall be in addition to any other remedy available under statutory or common law.
