    Ethics director Walter Shaub quits -conflicts of interest being ignored by admin

    From him

    -Trump's trust is "not even halfway blind," Shaub said at Brookings. "His sons are still running the businesses, and, of course, he knows what he owns."

    --
    Since Trump began naming appointees following the November election, the ethics office has been racing to keep up with the workload. That involves reviewing appointees' financial information

    --during the six months between October 2008 and March 2009, as the Obama presidency was taking shape, it got 733 public contacts,

    --October 2016 to March 2017 period in the Trump era, it was swamped with 39,105 contacts

    -
    Trump's plan for avoiding conflicts of interest "doesn't meet the standards that the best of his nominees are meeting and that every president in the past four decades has met."

    -
    Trump's refusal to divest his businesses and the administration's delay in disclosing ethics waivers for appointees.

    Shaub has been sharply critical of Trump's approach to ethics compliance since the election.

    --
    Trump had not promised total divestiture.
