American Oversight is filling the void and holding this Administration accountable—primarily by focusing on executive branch agencies and high-level government officials.
We’ve seen more ethics violations and conflicts of interest across the administration since Inauguration Day than in all eight years of the Obama administration. And this misconduct doesn’t end with President Trump—it starts there.
Relying on the Freedom of Information Act, American Oversight will do the job that Congress refuses to do, exposing unethical conduct throughout this Administration and demanding investigations.
We will file open records requests and sue agencies to uncover misconduct that otherwise would not see daylight, and harness the independent power of the courts to force the Administration to obey the law.
The American people have a right to a transparent, ethical, and accountable government; one that’s free from corruption and cronyism, and dedicated to doing what’s in the public’s interest. American Oversight will ensure that the Trump administration does not escape scrutiny and is held accountable for its misconduct.
