IT CAME FROM THE SWAMP: Former State Dept. Lawyer Creates Group To Investigate Trump

Was he one of the “non-partisan lawyers” at State? Nice of the swamp to self-identify. It’s like some of these folks are doing Trump’s job for him by singling themselves out.

The Hill reports:

New watchdog group formed to investigate Trump conflicts

A former State Department lawyer and the founder of another Washington watchdog group have joined forces to form an organization they say will serve as a check on the Trump administration.

American Oversight will primarily use litigation and open records laws to “uncover and publicize information about malfeasance and corruption by administration officials,” it said in a release announcing its creation on Monday.

“Congress has abdicated its constitutionally mandated oversight responsibilities of the executive branch — from failing to vet individuals before they take office to explicitly refusing to investigate conflicts of interest and misconduct,” the announcement says.

While key figures in the group have ties to Democrats, American Oversight bills itself as non-partisan.

Austin Evers, who most recently served as a senior counsel at the State Department, will lead the non-profit and Melanie Sloan, who founded Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, will be working as a senior adviser.

This is just another liberal outfit for George Soros to pump millions of dollars into so leftists can pretend to have real jobs.

It won’t go anywhere.
