Making executive branch officials’ ethics waivers publicly available adds a layer of accountability when these waivers are granted. While past administrations have been forthcoming with this information, the Trump administration hasn’t been — that behavior shouldn’t be tolerated from the current administration or future administrations.
While there was originally a back-and-forth between the Trump administration and the Office of Government Ethics over making Trump administration officials’ ethics waivers public in 2017, the Trump administration eventually fulfilled the OGE’s request for administration officials’ ethics waivers. This proves that there’s no need for this bill.
