Brief Executive Summary
The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs issued a Minority Staff report in which they investigated ongoing committee oversight regarding the ability of the U.S. Department of the Treasury to address potential conflicts of interest that arose from President Donald Trump's failure to divest his financial holdings. The investigation uncovered that the U.S. Department of the Treasury has not developed any successful policies or procedures in response to President Trump's conflicts of interest. Rather, the Department of the Treasury asserted that the responsibility of developing policies and procedures to protect against these conflicts of interest lies with the White House and not with the Treasury, claiming that there is "no pressing need" to develop such policies.
