The House should begin an impeachment inquiry into President Trump for his obstruction, acceptance of emoluments and conspiracy to defraud campaign finance law.
The president violates the Constitution on a daily basis, administration officials defy ethics laws, while the corrupting influence of money in politics persists across party lines and across the country. This cannot stand. CREW has taken more than 450 legal actions since the beginning of this administration to fight for a government that is accountable to the people, rather than one that is operating in secret, corrupted by self interest.
If President Trump would like to avoid the case going further and curtail the serious harms caused by his conduct, now would be a good time to divest from his businesses.
CREW has tallied every public conflict of interest the Trump has racked up during his presidency, and updates the numbers daily. The results are staggering.
Far from endorsing Doral for the G-7, the Secret Service said “the property does present some challenges,” followed by a redaction that implies security concerns.
Roger Stone is at least the sixth Trump associate to be convicted during Trump's presidency.
Congratulations to CREW’s Walter Shaub on receiving the 2019 Paul H. Douglas Award for Ethics in Government.
Donald Trump may have committed up to eight criminal offenses while campaigning and during the first year of his presidency.
The Constitution grants the Senate the “sole power to try all impeachments,” CREW and Public Citizen laid out four principles for conducting a fair trial.
Twitter’s rules are clear, and Conway is in violation of them. They do not allow users to “use our service for any unlawful service.”
When personal profits are prioritized over ethics, and secret money damages our institutions, CREW fights abuses of power and violations of the law. We must hold our leaders to a higher standard than simply walking the line between legality and criminality. Since our founding in 2003, we have worked to hold leaders of both parties accountable for unethical conduct. By demanding transparency and ethics from our leaders, we can defend our democracy and prevent the current crisis from becoming the new normal.
