Ross $$ Watch

Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross is a member of Trump’s Billionaire Cabinet Club, with a net worth of $2.5 billion. As with all high-level officials, he has to file reports with the Office of Government Ethics each time he sells, buys, or transfers stock and other securities worth $10,000 or more. I will be gathering those reports here as they become available.

As background, here are Ross’s 1) initial financial disclosure, 2) ethics agreement, 3) certificate of divestiture (March 8, 2017), and 4) certificates of divestiture (April 14, 2017).

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.
