Bank directors urge firing of Trump official in ethics probe

MIAMI (AP) — Executive directors of the Inter-American Development Bank voted unanimously Thursday to recommend firing a former Trump official as president of the Washington-based institution, a person familiar with the vote said.

The move came after an investigation conducted at the bank board’s request determined that Mauricio Claver-Carone violated ethics rules by favoring a top aide with whom he had a romantic relationship, according to a report obtained by The Associated Press.

The person who reported the decision to recommend ousting Claver-Carone said it came in a closed-door meeting. The person insisted on not being quoted by name.

The ultimate decision to fire Claver-Carone now rests with the Board of Governors, which represents all 48 of the bank’s member nations.

Among those pushing for Claver-Carone’s removal is the Biden administration, which said it was troubled by Claver-Carone’s refusal to fully cooperate with an independent probe.

“His creation of a climate of fear of retaliation among staff and borrowing countries has forfeited the confidence of the Bank’s staff and shareholders and necessitates a change in leadership,” a Treasury Department spokesperson said.

1. "Pick a reason. Just dump the trumper."

Let the hemorrhaging begin.

I had to google hemorrhaging spelling.
