Former @StateDept official Charles Faulkner helped the Trump administration bypass Congress to fast track arms sales to Saudi Arabia & the UAE – including arms made by Raytheon, his former lobbying client. That’s blatant government corruption. nytimes.com/2019/06/11/us/…
.@realDonaldTrump is more interested in appeasing US defense contractors than holding Saudi Arabia accountable for one of the world’s worst humanitarian catastrophes. washingtonpost.com/world/american…
.@RepTedLieu & I have urged the @StateOIG to investigate Charles Faulkner’s conduct, including whether he violated his ethics pledge & any federal ethics laws during his govt service. Officials should work for the American people, not their former defense contractor clients.
We need to padlock the revolving door between big business & government to get our democracy working for the people again. My bill to #EndCorruptionNow would force former corporate lobbyists like Charles Faulkner to take a 6-year time-out before taking a job in government.
