Former Ethics Chief Demands Biden Transparency on Trip

Joe Biden has been tone-deaf to the American people throughout his time in office.

The latest example is Biden’s trip to Nantucket for Thanksgiving.

Former ethics boss Walter Schaub is calling Biden out for the trip, demanding more transparency from a man that has been engulfed in ethics violations since taking office.

Transparency, Joe

On Wednesday, Joe Biden flew to Nantucket for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Biden is reportedly staying at the home of David Rubenstein, a co-founder of the Carlyle Group.

Joe Biden is now hobnobbing with billionaires while the average American is shelling out an extra 14 percent for their holiday meal.

Schaub, who served as the US Office of Government Ethics Director, says Biden needs to immediately clear up how this trip is being funded to avoid ethics complaints…

He added, “I’m not suggesting he wouldn’t, just reminding not to let it slip through the cracks.

“There’s a disclosure exception for personal hospitality, but that only applies if the head of the Carlyle Group is staying there with the Bidens.

“I suspect the WH is all over compliance with the rule — and oblivious to the ethical optics.”

Schaub may be giving Biden too much credit regarding the reporting, as Biden stayed with Rubenstein in 2014 but never disclosed the trip on his 2014 financial disclosure form.

Jeff Hauser, who runs the Revolving Door Project at the Center for Economic and Policy Research, also hit Biden for the trip…

Schaub also commented on his post, replying, “Look, Jeff. Who among us HASN’T spent a holiday at the beach house of the head of a gigantic multinational private equity, alternative asset management and financial services corporation while serving in high government office?”

When White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was challenged about the optics and timing of the trip, she responded, “This is a time to put politics aside, spend time with your loved ones and talk about what you’re grateful for.”

This from the woman that politicized every move Trump made during his presidency.

So, sorry, Jen, but you don’t get to make the rules here.

Dems set the bar from 2017 to 2021, literally putting everything on the table for criticism, so Biden needs to start answering questions about his fancy weekend away when he should be at the White House fixing the mess he has created in this country.

      1. Who was it that said, “Let them eat cake”. The communist elites have one set of rules for themselves and another set for the deplorables that are fast coming under the boot of the Communist Chinese Party, thanks to the demented, controlled puppet in the WH, who is only there by fraud. So all you who voted for Biden, and the Dems in Congress need to wake up and see where our country is headed. Biden’s ratings are a disaster and any Democrat that votes for his bills to bankrupt this country will not be in office in their next election, so for once, vote for the good of the US citizens and our country’s recovery. And for crying out loud, kill all vaccine mandates.

  1. Biden has spent millions in 9 months in secret service cost plus transportation… sad that money could have been used to help the poor and struggling Americans …He is such a disgrace to America. He is a sly and sneaky loser who promised transparency and all we get is lies…

  2. Everything this IDIOT has done since he was put in the White House has been illegal or crooked in some way. He shouldnt be president of this great country he should be in PRISON for all the WRONG things he has done. If a normal person had done the things Biden has done they would have been in prison a long time ago. It seems to me that certain people are above the law in America but the law is supposed to be the same for everyone. Why is it not the same for IDIOTS like this. This is not fair to the rest of the American people.

  3. ” spend time with your loved ones ” but but but…Were NOT ALLOWED To Travel To See OUR ” Loved Ones “

  4. The entire Democraptic Party needs to be abolished and all of these Corrupt idiots need to be held accountable for their TREASONOUS actions and behaviors… Tlaib and Omar need to be removed from their Political Offices in the United States of America Congress. Both Tlaib and Omar need to have their citizenships removed and then be deported from the United States of America… These two foreign actors stand for everything that America doesn’t support. Tlaib and Omar are nothing less than planted foreign terrorists from Countries that hate America.

GOP CHAIR TWEETS

Biden’s foreign policy puts terrorists first:

*He gave Afghanistan to the Taliban.

*He’s working to lift sanctions on terrorist-funding Iran.

*Today, he legitimatized the Marxist terrorist group FARC by removing them from the list of terrorist organizations.

Biden won’t take responsibility for Afghanistan, for the border, for inflation, or for gas prices.

In Biden’s mind, the buck stops with everyone but him.

Reminder as Biden is forcing mandates on the American people.

When the cameras are off, he doesn’t follow them himself.
