Accountability Post Trump Year 0, Nov 30

I called the Government Accountability Office to ask if they were logging phone calls calling for a full investigation of Trump's financial conflicts of interest. (I had seen a meme to this effect.) The nice lady who answered the phone replied that they preferred e-mails so as to have a written record. I verified this e-mail address with her: CongRel@gao.gov. I have also checked it at the GAO website.

So I sent off an e-mail. For those who are interested or want a script to follow, here is what mine said:

Subject: Investigate Trump's Conflicts of Interest


I am writing to demand a full investigation of Donald Trump for potential conflict of interest violations.

His wide ranging and opaque financial empire combined with his plan to have his children run it while simultaneously advising him on government policy give me no reason to trust him. His statement to the press that "the president cannot *have* a conflict of interest," does not inspire confidence. At the very least the fact that one of the post offices is renting space in a Trump-owned building is an obvious conflict of interest and the lease contains standard government wording that indicates that it is void under these circumstances.

Thank you for your time.

(And I put my name and address at the bottom.)
