Trump’s Vast Web of Conflicts: A User’s Guide

An agency-by-agency look at the ethics challenges
flowing from Trump’s sprawling business empire.

Donald Trumps new hires should brace themselves for a full immersion in government ethics school.

.

Theyre going to need it given the president-elects sprawling business empire and his lack of interest in selling off his companies and properties outright.

.

The Republicans appointees will be running departments and agencies with direct ties to their boss businesses and wider political interests, from an IRS audit into his tax records to National Labor Relations Board enforcement of cases involving his hotel workers to the FBIs investigation into the suspected Russian cyberespionage aimed at influencing an election that Trump just won.

.

Unlike past presidents who took office with considerable wealth, from George H.W. Bush to John F. Kennedy, the setup Trump is creating for his financial assets  leaving his three oldest adult children and a team of highly skilled executives in charge while hes in the Oval Office  appears likely to expose large numbers of people the president hires to an unprecedented set of conflicts spanning his entire federal government.

.

Asked for comment about the incoming GOP administrations potential conflicts, spokeswoman Hope Hicks pointed to a prior Trump Organization statement about the planned transfer of power to Trumps kids that vaguely explained how the final structure will comply with all applicable rules and regulations.

.

Foreign affairs: Trump has significant business interests in at least a dozen countries, though the full extent of his operations is unknown, in part because he has refused to release his tax returns.

.

.

Banking: Trumps vast real estate holdings are propped up by millions of dollars in debt held by the worlds largest banks, including Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs and the Bank of China.

.

snip

.

Law enforcement: Trumps Justice Department will be at the epicenter for politically tinged ethical questions, no matter how much its leaders try to stay above the fray.

.

The FBI, which dropped a pre-election bombshell regarding its investigation into Hillary Clintons email server, is still examining Russias suspected cyberespionage around the presidential race. On top of that, current and former DOJ, FBI and intelligence sources told POLITICO last month that federal law enforcement was looking into the connections between Russia, the release by WikiLeaks of Clinton campaign chairman John Podestas stolen emails, and questionable moves by several operatives who worked for and around the Trump campaign.

.

Trump will get to put his biggest imprint on DOJ through his nomination of a new attorney general. Hell also have a big say in the direction of the FBI depending on whether he keeps Director James Comey around. Regardless of who he picks for those leadership slots, Eisen said, the DOJ leaders will be dealing with conflict of interest challenges if theyre made to pursue a political agenda in following through on the Republicans campaign promise to prosecute Clinton over her use of a private email server, as well as in how theyd handle evidence if law enforcement went down any paths that werent favorable to Trump.

.

The Trump Justice Department also will be dealing with the interpretation of laws against racial and gender discrimination that could influence a variety of lawsuits facing the presidents businesses, as well as future cases.

.

snip

.

Trumps tax returns: Throughout the presidential campaign, Trump fended off demands to see his tax returns because hes under an IRS audit. He repeated the claim in an interview that aired Sunday on CBS “60 Minutes,” calling it a routine matter that he reasoned the public wasnt concerned about given his victory at the ballot box. At the appropriate time, I will release them, Trump said.

.

But as a practical matter, that IRS audit is being done by a Treasury Department that will soon have at its helm a Trump appointee. Legally, the audit wont change now that Trump is president-elect. But former government officials explained that it will be reviewed at a higher level and any adjustment will be triple-checked.

.

Trumps taxes could dog him throughout his presidency should he continue to resist making his returns public.

.

snip

.

Trumps D.C. hotel: Trumps transition team is already dealing with a major conflict over the luxury hotel the president-elects company just opened in the historic Old Post Office Pavilion a few blocks from the White House.

.

At issue is a 60-year lease the General Services Administration entered into in 2013 with the Trump Organization, long before its CEO was a presidential candidate.

.

snip

.

Trumps employees: Trumps business practices are also front and center with the NLRB, an independent agency charged with enforcing national labor law.

.

There are at least nine pending charges before the board involving Trumps presidential campaign and his Las Vegas hotel. The president-elects most recent encounter, coming right before the election, involved a ruling against the Trump International Hotel Las Vegas, co-owned by the president-elect with casino magnate Phil Ruffin, that determined the business violated the law by refusing to bargain with a union representing more than 500 housekeeping, food and beverage and guest workers.

.

snip

.

Pipelines and permits: Trump ran for president vowing to eliminate regulatory red tape, and one of the early items on the GOP-led Congress to-do list includes rolling back a range of Obama administration environmental rules.

.

That should all sound good to business ventures connected to Trump, a longtime property developer who hasnt shied away from battling green groups and local community activists in the past over environmental permits.

.

Theres actually one big project on the drawing board thatll probably be waiting for Trump, the controversial Dakota Access pipeline. On Monday, amid nationwide protests, the Army Corps of Engineers put construction of the $3.7 billion energy project on hold, a move that could punt the matter to the incoming administration.
