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.

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.
