Today I sent the following email to Temple Moore, Congressman Goodlatte’s Legislative Correspondent at his office in Washington:
I want to follow up on our phone conversation of December 21.
As you may recall, I phoned Congressman Goodlatte’s office to ask two specific questions:
— Has Congressman Goodlatte responded to the letter from the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee asking him to schedule hearings on the potential conflicts between Donald Trump’s businesses interests and his position as President of the United States?
— Does Congressman Goodlatte intend to schedule hearings on that matter?
You promised to check with the congressman and get back to me. I haven’t heard from you since. Have you had a chance to ask him about it?
I hope Congressman Goodlatte would agree that Trump’s plan to continue to own his businesses and simply turn over management to his sons is hardly a satisfactory solution, and that the public deserves a more thorough examination of the many potential conflicts inherent in being both President and a large-scale business owner.
When can I expect a response from the congressman?
Best wishes for the New Year,
I will report any response I receive.
