Accountability post:

Today I read that the House Oversight Committee might be persuaded to hold a bipartisan review of Mr Trump's financial situation including his many possible conflicts of interest. The place where I read it gave a phone number but when I called it, the number didn't work. The voicemail was full and the outgoing message didn't mention the House Oversight Committee anyway, which seemed a bit suspicious.

It said that it was important to do it today because the House will take the full week of Thanksgiving off and vote when it returns the following week, so I turned to google and found this page showing who is on the House Oversight Committee. To my pleasure, one of the people on it is my Representative, Congressman Duncan.

So I called Congressman Duncan's local office and they put me through to his DC office, and I encouraged them to investigate the finances of Mr. Trump and in particular the conflicts of interest that would arise from letting his children both run his business empire and have access to classified information their business competitors don't, or advise their father on government policy or both. I also pointed out that it was deeply disturbing that Mr. Trump had not released his tax returns and encouraged the Congressman to bring this up as well regarding the review.

Then I persuaded my husband to do the same thing from his work.

I may not have accomplished much today, but I accomplished that.
