    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton today made the following statement regarding the announcement by President-Elect Donald J. Trump that he had officially handed “complete and total” control of his business empire to his sons, Don Jr and Eric, in order to avoid potential conflicts of interest once he enters the White House:
    While there is no off-the-shelf ethics plan for a matter as complex and unprecedented as this, Mr. Trump seems to be on the right track. As we said in our recent New York Times op-ed, it would be unfair to insist that Mr. Trump destroy his business to become president. This ethics plan follows many of Judicial Watch’s recommendations and reasonably addresses pressing concerns about separating Mr. Trump’s private business from the public’s business.

      You people carped about this for years. I remember Boehner saying they would repeal and replace with a better plan, but they needed a republican house, senate and president. Well tomorrow finally came. Time to pony up.

    08 days, 15 hours, 21 minutes.

    Not that I’m counting, mind you.

      Steve, when do you start including seconds?

        I really can’t because one can’t tell how long it will take for the post to load.

        Incidentally, I try to fix things so what I report, added to the time stamp, works out to be 12 Noon on the 20th. So technically, when I say something like “24 minutes” it’s somewhere between 23 and 24 minutes, and the time stamp says :36 after the hour.

        In the interests of full disclosure, for those who are counting. I’m not counting, mind you, just being helpful.

    Read California Lieutenant Governor said he will block Trump’s wall with environmental suits. I could make an argument his house should be torn down for the same reasons.

    Apropos of nothing, but related to the return of Main Street/America First Economics – had lengthy talk this a.m. with my Bernie Buddies. These guys are gamers, cell/phone phreaks, fiber/DSL guys, small business, hacker types. In short, me, but younger.

    These guys fully understand the intent and direction of our new (old) economic paradigm. They are fully, 100% on board. They have not really left society. not yet, anyway They just live in a different world – my world.

    I do think things are going to work out.

    Ok, thanks for listening. Back to the war.

    I am watching Tucker Carlson and he has a lawyer on that has represented the Bush family saying that Trump needs to SELL HIS BUSINESSES if he wants to be truly transparent. Also those buildings that have the “Trump name” need to have it removed because they can’t be protected in case of foreign entities that might attack them. They are all “itching” to have him divest of everything…just incredible!

      Clearly he didn’t listen to the lawyer this morning who explained why doing so is not a good idea.

      Obviously his point wasn’t that by law, Trump needed to sell everything. He kept drifting to the fact that Trump’s name was on buildings. Obviously he had other interests.

      I forgot that every president, from Washington to Adams to Taft and the Roosevelts, were all penniless paupers devoid of land, titles and investments.
      I remember a precedent that is the EXACT opposite. How silly of me.

    Trump said he was going to nominate a SCOTUS BEFORE the inauguration and he should do that quickly and not drag this out! Too important!
