.@RepJayapal & I have the most ambitious anti-corruption legislation since Watergate to #EndCorruptionNow. This week, we got terrific news: with @RepJayapal's hard work & persistence, the House included — & passed — some key parts of it in the historic #ForThePeople Act:
Incoming administrations should work for the people, not lobbyists & industry insiders. The House passed our plan to force people who work on presidential transition teams to follow ethics rules like every other official. #EndCorruptionNow #ForThePeople
No more selling out to foreign governments that abuse human rights & undermine our national security. @RepJayapal made sure the House bill included our ban on Washington lobbyists from getting paid big bucks to lobby for foreign governments. #EndCorruptionNow #ForThePeople
The House passed our provision to require ALL White House staff & advisors, paid or unpaid, to follow basic ethics rules. That includes, for example, senior advisor family members who don't divest their holdings & hand out WH visits to investors. #EndCorruptionNow #ForThePeople
In case you haven’t noticed, a zillion Trump officials have had to lawyer up for breaking the rules. The House passed our plan to make sure that government officials who establish legal expense funds can’t secretly beg powerful interests for money. #EndCorruptionNow #ForThePeople
One more thing: We shouldn’t have to beg candidates to let people see their financial interests. @RepJayapal led the charge to require presidential candidates to release years of tax returns for themselves AND their business empires. #EndCorruptionNow #ForThePeople
I’m very grateful that we have a strong partner in the House to lead these big fights to #EndCorruptionNow – and win them. @RepJayapal works her heart out every day to make this government work #ForThePeople, not the wealthy & well-connected.
The #ForThePeople Act is a strong first step toward cleaning up Washington corruption. I’m fighting to get this bill a vote on the Senate floor – and I’ll keep fighting for my Anti-Corruption Act for more big structural changes to #EndCorruptionNow & strengthen our democracy.
