Conflicts of Interest


The Presidential Transition Act was amended earlier this year. It now requires that “the eligible candidate will implement and enforce an ethics plan to guide the conduct of the transition beginning on the date on which the eligible candidate becomes the President-elect.” One of the requirements of the plan is that it shall “address how the covered eligible candidate will address his or her own conflicts of interest during a Presidential term if the covered eligible candidate becomes the President-elect.”

I look forward to a clear statement from the President-elect, whoever he may turn out to be, about how he intends to deal with family ties to foreign interests.
