Do your job. Investigate President Trump’s ethical conflicts of interest.
Our Members of Congress are elected to represent their constituents and uphold our American values of good governance and the rule of law. As Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Utah Republican Jason Chaffetz is in an excellent position to bring ethical violations and corruption to the attention of the American people. Never has this been more important than now. By refusing to release his tax returns and divest his financial holdings into a blind trust, Donald Trump has chosen to jettison the legal and ethical standards followed by our Presidents for the past 40 years.
When Director of the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) publicly stated that Trump’s business arrangements were still out of compliance with the OGE’s guidelines and would not eliminate his conflicts of interest, Chaffetz threatened the OGE’s funding and demanded the director submit to a private hearing with the Oversight Committee.
Chaffetz’s decision to turn a blind eye toward Donald Trump’s conflicts of interest while attacking the Office of Government Ethics director, who holds no power other than to assist and advise our political leaders in avoiding financial conflicts of interest, is a purely partisan act. It is also a dereliction of his duty as Chairman of the House Oversight Committee.
If you care about ethics and the rule of law, sign this petition to tell Rep. Jason Chaffetz to do his job -- or resign from his committee.
