Follow-up on Trump conflicts-of-interest hearings

Today I sent the following email to Temple Moore, Congressman Goodlatte’s Legislative Correspondent at his office in Washington:

Hi Temple,

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,

Gene Zitver

I will report any response I receive.

  2. The House of Representatives is the single Constitutional firewall we have against Presidential malfeasance, through use or threat of impeachment. We need them to do their job and investigate.

  3. Letter I sent today to Goodlatte, Thank you allowing me to use some of your language in my letter.

    Dear Congressman:
    As your constituent, I am writing to request that you inform us as to what actions you might be taking to evaluate the obvious conflicts of interest that are occurring with regards to the Presidents’ private business interests and his being able to serve this country without financial influence from other countries. Two questions we would like answered are:
    -Have you responded to the letter from the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee asking you to schedule hearings on the potential conflicts between Donald Trump’s businesses interests and his position as President of the United States?
    — Do you intend to schedule hearings on that matter?
    I hope you as our Congressman 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.
    -Additionally, for the President to just state that the lawsuit brought against him today “has no merit” is a very poor answer to present to the American people. We would like the truth to come out and you are our venue for requesting that truth.

    We expect an answer and as our Congressman, you should help us obtain this information.
    Respectfully,
    Vicki A Stinnette
