Don't they have to put everything in trust due to conflict of interest?

This seems pretty normal to me. Probably just another case of TDS.

No silly. You just have to trust in them that there is no conflict of interest. It's the new normal.

Trumpsters don't need to follow no stinking ethics rules. That's sooo PC.

What else do you expect from an ex board member of a bank in Cyprus well known to be involved in Russian money laundering. People get a clue. This is going to be the new normal.

Weasels gotta weasel. When the NYT accidentally tipped him off, he jumped on the opportunity. He's a slick bastard, that's for sure.

What a weasley fucking excuse too.

"I did not receive any nonpublic information due to my government position, nor did I receive any nonpublic information from a government employee," Ross said in a statement according to the AP. "Securities laws presume that information known to or provided by a news organization is by definition public information."

See. The person who told me was from the news. So it's public. Doesn't matter that it wasn't published anywhere or furnished to the public yet.

Oh well see its the NYT that's really to blame then. Think its just a coincidence that Wall Street in in NYC? That's why Hilary became a Senator there. Everyone knows NYC is crooked and in Wall Street's pocket!!! Except Turmp tower!

It seems like the real infighting in the Trump admin is between the all the weasels vying to be the biggliest, most dominant swamp creature. See, as bad as Pruitt is, it looks like he's been doing this all these months just to outdo Ross, whose slick insider trading maneuver he had already known about for months!

Sleepy Ben is barely in the running, probably because he can't stay awake long enough to spend our money on anything more than a lame $35k dining set....but throwing his wife under the bus for that one was a nice touch. Extra credit!
