May 23, 2017

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer released the below statement following a phone call with the Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney:

“In a call last night, I asked Director Mulvaney to respect the Office of Government Ethics’ request to make public copies of waivers given to former lobbyists to work in the Administration. There is absolutely no excuse for the Administration to keep these waivers from the OGE or the American people. I also expressed to Director Mulvaney my deep frustration with President Trump’s failure to keep his promise to ‘drain the swamp,’ and he assured me that he would take my concerns under consideration – I hope they make this change for the good of our country.”
