(1/6) In case there are any remaining doubts that Wilbur Ross has operated with blatant conflicts of interest, here is proof, demonstrated through documents filed by Ross himself.
(2/6) On Dec. 19, 2016, he filed a list of his assets, which showed a stake in Chevron (p. 40). The screenshot is below, and here’s the full document: extapps2.oge.gov/201/Presiden.n…
(3/6) Ross later disclosed that he took until May to sell off the Chevron shares. Here’s one document, showing sales on 5/16/17 and 5/17/17: extapps2.oge.gov/201/Presiden.n…
(4/6) In the meantime, before the sales, Ross met with Chevron executives on March 22, 2017, according to his calendar. If you zoom in, you can see the calendar says “Purpose: Share Chevron’s perspectives on global oil and gas developments and to discuss tax reform and trade.”
(5/6) In the words of former Obama ethics czar, @NormEisen, “They might as well have written down there ‘Share Chevron’s perspectives on how to enhance the value of your stock.’”
(6/6) That’s the definition of a conflict of interest. And it’s not the only one. Give me a few minutes and I’ll lay out the documents demonstrating another one. In the meantime, here’s the story I put together on all of this: forbes.com/sites/danalexa…
