Shareblue lists tRumps unchecked corruption, items that Dems can new investigate

To date, the Republican-controlled Congress has allowed Trump to do whatever he wants, refusing to perform basic constitutional oversight duties. The unchecked corruption by Trump, his family, and his administration is staggering:

* Trump is at the center of an ongoing FBI investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
* Senior Trump officials have pleaded guilty to federal charges, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and campaign aides Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos.
* Trumpís campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was found guilty on 8 counts, including multiple instances of tax and bank fraud.
* Trumpís son Donald Jr. and son-in-law Jared Kushner met with a Russian operative offering dirt on Hillary Clinton in 2016.
* Trump refused to set up a blind trust, as other presidents have in the past. This allows him to make money from the Trump businesses while also influencing operations as president.
* Senior Trump aide Kellyanne Conway used an appearance on Fox News to tell viewers to buy Ivanka Trumpís line of jewelry.
* Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have revised their ethics disclosure documents at least 40 times after failing to disclose their conflicts of interest on official government documents.
* Walter Shaub, then-director of the Office of Government Ethics, quit his job in protest of Trumpís wholehearted embrace of public corruption while in office.
* Trump fired then-FBI Director James Comey after he refused to publicly vouch for Trumpís innocence regarding the FBIís Russia investigation.
* Trump fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she refused to implement his bigoted ban on Muslim travel. He then tried to block her from testifying about Russian election interference.
* Trump has spent 210 days at his properties, including 159 days at his golf properties. This has allowed him to use the presidency as a vehicle to advertise his private holdings.
* Trumpís D.C. hotel charges a premium over similar hotels in the area, where people stay as a way to curry Trumpís favor and gain influence over his administration. He profits personally from that premium.
* Trump gave multiple people who could not pass a background check access to ďTop SecretĒ material. Those people include Jared Kushner and Trump aide Rob Porter, who was accused of spousal abuse.
* Scott Pruitt, Trumpís former EPA chief, was deeply involved in multiple scandals, including renting property from a lobbyist at cut-rate prices and going on luxury vacations at taxpayer expense.
* Tom Price, Trumpís then-HHS secretary, was forced out after he was exposed for traveling on private jets using tax dollars.
* Ryan Zinke, Trumpís secretary of the Interior Department, and his senior aide Kellyanne Conway flew on private jets with taxpayer funds. - Shareblue
