Democrats ask Goodlatte to hold hearings on Trump’s conflicts of interest

Sixteen Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee have written to chairman Bob Goodlatte asking him to schedule hearings on the potential conflicts between Donald Trump’s business interests and his future position as president of the United States.

(Read the letter here.)

If (as is likely) he refuses to hold hearings, and considering how eager he has been to investigate Hillary Clinton’s alleged misdeeds, it would be good to get his reasons on the record.

Update: I phoned Congressman Goodlatte’s office on December 21 to ask if he had responded to the letter from the committee Democrats and if he intended to hold hearings on the matter. The aide I spoke to said he would be “happy to pass your concerns on to the Congressman” and that someone would get back to me. So we’ll see.
