Unposted Financial Disclosures for Trump Admin Officials/Nominees

Government officials and nominees have to file disclosures in which they reveal all their employers, income, assets (including stock), debts, spouse’s finances, and more. The Office of Government Ethics posts these financial disclosures for only the highest-paid officials. I’m requesting the disclosures of some of the most important and interesting officials and nominees whose documents don’t get posted. I’ll be putting them up here on an ongoing basis.

Newest additions: Larry Kudlow (White House), John Bolton (White House), Dan Scavino (White House), Andrew Wheeler (EPA), Sebastian Gorka, Stephen Miller, Omarosa Manigault, Steven Bannon, Mark Esper (Army)
