Government Watchdogs: Robert Weissman

by Editorial

Robert Weissman, President, Public Citizen
The Washington-based nonprofit group keeps tabs on government transparency and corporate influence on the administration’s policy making. It has raised questions about Trump’s failure to follow what his predecessors have done to divest themselves of their business interests while in office. A year into the Trump administration, Public Citizen published a list of groups and organizations that in 2017 held events or booked rooms in Trump’s Washington hotel and other Trump properties. The list enumerates 35 political candidates, 16 interest groups, four charities, four foreign governments, three religious groups, two individual companies and a college football team.
