You stated in your letter to me that the “men and women elected to represent the American people should be held to the highest standards.” I strongly agree. This is why I am so disturbed by the President-elect’s refusal to release his tax records and his refusal to place his businesses in a blind trust. The director of the Office of Government Ethics called Trump’s plan to hand the running of his businesses to family members “not even close” to a blind trust and “wholly inadequate.” In order to know his conflicts of interest, the American public needs to see his tax returns, something his predecessors have done and that he himself advised Mitt Romney to do in 2012. But now as President-elect, he is reversing the forty-year tradition of previous Presidents. As the highest elected official, he should be held to the very highest of standards, but instead he is significantly lowering them. So what are you doing to hold the President to the ethical standards that you proclaimed? I would like to believe that your statement to me wasn’t empty rhetoric. Do you actually mean what you say?
