Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner must divest, or recuse

We deserve public servants who serve ONLY the public -- and we can't trust government officials' decisions if their private wealth is involved. As formal members of the Trump administration, Ivanka Trump & her husband Jared Kushner are subject to the same conflict rules as everyone else -- they must either divest their assets and set up a blind trust, or recuse themselves from huge areas of the administration's’ agenda.

In Wake of Nunes-Russia Memo Release, White House Should Clear Schiff Memo on Russia Investigation for Release Expeditiously

February 5, 2018; Press Release, Status Update

Americans deserve the facts about the Russian attack on the 2016 election and the ongoing investigation, and the White House owes the American people answers. The Trump Administration should move quickly to clear the release of the House Intelligence Committee Democratic members’ response to the Nunes memo. The Republican memo has been widely discredited for cherry-picking facts in an attempt to undermine the FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of the Russian attacks. Americans should be presented with the facts, not conspiracy theories hatched by a member of the Trump transition team.

February 2, 2018

But now that the committee's GOP-commissioned memo has been released, despite the FBI’s "grave concerns" regarding its accuracy, the Democrats’ memo rebutting it and the material underlying both must be made public immediately.
