Subject: Drain the swamp!
A week after his January 2017 inauguration, Trump signed an executive order that bars former
lobbyists, lawyers and others from participating in any matter they lobbied or otherwise worked on
for private clients within two years before going to work for the government.
But records reviewed by The Associated Press show Trump’s top lawyer, White House counsel Don
McGahn, has issued at least 24 ethics waivers to key administration officials at the White House and
executive branch agencies.
Though the waivers were typically signed by McGahn months ago, the Office of Government Ethics
disclosed several more on Wednesday.
