Database of Trump Administration Officials’ Personal Finances Adds More Than 100 New Records
From the Center For Public Integrity:
The Center for Public Integrity today added more than 100 new Trump administration officials’ financial disclosures to a searchable, sortable database first launched in April.
The database allows anyone to easily understand the wealth, assets and business interests of many of the people working for President Donald Trump. These include Senate-confirmed appointees, White House aides and members of so-called “beachhead teams” sent to prepare executive agencies for the new administration.
The new disclosures are possible thanks to the Center for Public Integrity’s collaboration with ProPublica — a fellow Pulitzer Prize-winning nonprofit news organization — which requested the disclosure forms from government sources and made the disclosures available as PDF files.
The Center for Public Integrity’s news developer, Chris Zubak-Skees, extracted data from more than 220 recently filed financial reports, using a software tool he created — and which the Center for Public Integrity is releasing for anyone to use.
