Government Ethics Chief: Trump Appears to Be 'Profiting' From His Position

Walter Shaub is resigning as the head of the Government Ethics Office, but not without criticizing President Trump first. He said that it appears the Trump family is “profiting from his occupying the presidency.” And he also said that “appearance matters as much as reality.” Does it though? If you’re the chief investigator into government ethics, don’t you think the where-there’s-smoke-there’s-fire argument is a little played out? You might want some actual hard evidence before you make wild accusations like this one.
