Ethical Issue Pileup Gives Democrats Powerful Weapon Against Trump
House Democrats have set up what they call the Democracy Reform Task Force, led by Rep. John Sarbanes of Maryland. The task force’s chief goals are to expose the president’s conflicts of interest and ethical abuses and also to tie those to specific policy matters, Sarbanes said…. “We’re going to show voters how these conflicts harm them and how not having the full picture of what ties he has with his business is going to affect the policy-making process,” Sarbanes said…. “Voters are going to care more about the conflicts when they start to see how they will impact them and their lives,” he said.
