Outgoing Ethics Chief: "US is close to a Laughingstock"

WASHINGTON — Actions by President Trump and his administration have created a historic ethics crisis, the departing head of the Office of Government Ethics said. He called for major changes in federal law to expand the power and reach of the oversight office and combat the threat.

Walter M. Shaub Jr., who is resigning as the federal government’s top ethics watchdog on Tuesday, said the Trump administration had flouted or directly challenged long-accepted norms in a way that threatened to undermine the United States’ ethical standards, which have been admired around the world.

“It’s hard for the United States to pursue international anticorruption and ethics initiatives when we’re not even keeping our own side of the street clean. It affects our credibility,” Mr. Shaub said in a two-hour interview this past weekend — a weekend Mr. Trump let the world know he was spending at a family-owned golf club that was being paid to host the U.S. Women’s Open tournament. “I think we are pretty close to a laughingstock at this point.”

Mr. Shaub called for nearly a dozen legal changes to strengthen the federal ethics system: changes that, in many cases, he had not considered necessary before Mr. Trump’s election. Every other president since the 1970s, Republican or Democrat, worked closely with the ethics office, he said.

You sure have learned a lot in four months. It's almost like you've been here longer.

Only President that didn't have to retain outside personal counsel for any potential legal action against him or his administration while he was in office in at least 30 years.

Pretty good on the ethical issues, too.

I'd say he worked overtime (figuring out ways to skirt the system).

Really? You're saying that no one in the Republican party could overcome the conservative krytonite that was President Obama- other than a birth certificate fool's errand...

Please...

Obama had a kill list, that included American citizens on it. A kill list that was executed without judicial or legislative oversight in countries we were not at war with and that included high amounts of collateral lives lost.

That is not ethical in the slightest. Your tribalism has made you say the statement in bold statement and thus look retarded.

Solyndra
IRS targeting

Spying on Trump
Spying on Fox News reporters

If Trump, or any other republican, had been involved with those... the press would('ve) beaten it to death

But then again you're a Chicago liberal, and so I wouldnt expect you to agree nor understand how tainted he is
