What about it? Obama signed The Stock Act into law in 2012 to try to stop insider trading by congress and other government employees. When the SEC actually tried to open an insider trading investigation into a staffer congress basically told them "Separation of powers. Fuck off!" and got away with it. Why should the executive branch be any different than congress as far being exempt from the rules goes?

Facepalm

RE: Top security clearance
Not sure how the national security angle is going to pan out but the conflicts of finacial interest - potentially much more visible - may produce some interesting conspiracy theories, accusations, concerns etc. Great ammo for investigative journalists!

And nutters.

I predict that whole libraries of books will be written about this presidency.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

This seems to be a big part of it.

I think I understand what you are asking, insider trading issues.

I assume the Trumpdashians do have investments in the equity markets and could easily parlay secret information into trades that front run the public's knowledge.

I'm very curious to see how the State Department handles all of this.

RE: Top security clearance
I had a top secret security clearance when I was in the service.

It means you're cleared to SEE stuff that's classified (to the level of your clearance) -- but it doesn't give you the keys to the filing cabinets...... (so to speak).


It's called "need to know" - -- if you need to know - they'll tell ya.

If not -- don't ask questions.

RE: Top security clearance
And need to know is decided by some person, not the current lizard-elect. In fact, Billy Bob didn't know of the existence of F117A until one was shot down over Serbia in '99. When he asked why he hadn't heard of it, he was told he didn't have a need to know. Tongue
