'In cess pool, not the swamp'

Print Article

I see by the news that another official who works for the federal government has used their position to increase their stock portfolio.

The head of the Transportation Department, whose father owns a black top company, has 4,000 shares of stock in the company. She told the ethics board a year ago that she sold them. She also happened to be the wife of the leader of the Senate who refuses to move against Trump making money off his hotels and golf clubs while he is in office.

When Trump said he was going to drain the swamp, he did. He put the government in the cess pool instead.
