Congressional Integrity Project Week of May 1, 2023 Summary

May 5, 2023

This week, Congressional Integrity Project sent a letter to House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer calling on him to investigate the obvious corruption and influence peddling by the Trump family that occurred while Donald Trump was President and since he left office. The letter details specific business deals with foreign adversaries that Comer and his fellow MAGA Republicans should investigate. 

Congressional Integrity Project will also fly a plane over the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 6, carrying a banner calling on Rep. James Comer’s constituents to go to, where they will find an article in the Louisville Courier Journal about Congressional Integrity Project’s letter to the Fayette Commonwealth Attorney’s Office calling for an investigation into Comer’s involvement in obtaining and distributing leaked emails and, if there is sufficient evidence, to charge him with a crime.

Politico (Huddle): Congress plots immigration, debt for next week. “FIRST IN HUDDLE: ABOUT THAT SUBPOENA… — In response to House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer’s subpoena of the FBI as part of his investigation into Hunter Biden and other family members, the Congressional Integrity Project sent a letter to Comer offering to assist with any similar probe into Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. The letter, obtained by Huddle, invokes a mocking tone and lays out allegations against Trump’s son-in-law and daughter influence peddling with international adversaries. “We are confident the potential conflicts of interest we have identified are of vital importance to anyone with a sincere desire to prevent corrupt business deals from influencing U.S. foreign policy,” executive director Kyle Herring writes.” [Politico, 5/5/23]
