Thursday's HOT MIC

Thursday's HOT MIC

Prepare for media melt-down.

Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub Jr. turned in his resignation today. He wrote that "public service is a public trust, requiring employees to place loyalty to the Constitution, the laws, and ethical principles above private gain."

 

While this does not look great for Trump, it is a rather small matter, and Shaub never explained his reasoning. He has, however, criticized Trump's business arrangements in the past. He has accepted a job with the Campaign Legal Center, a left-leaning election law group which seeks to curb citizens' ability to donate to political causes and sides with Democrats on "voting rights" issues.

This resignation will be overhyped by the Left, but it seems like one more Deep State defection. Shaub headed the government ethics office since Obama appointed him to lead it in 2013.
