Updated FOIA request to SBA seeking resumes and job titles for political appointees hired by President Trump after April 12, 2017. This FOIA updates a previous request submitted by American Oversight seeking this information.
American Oversight has been investigating questionable behaviors by Trump's political appointees. Our FOIAs have helped journalists report on many conflicts of interests, such as using personal email for government business and high-level political figures hosting events at Trump properties.
As SBA Administrator Linda McMahon spoke to a meeting of Louisiana business leaders in Washington, DC last month, staffers for the Small Business Administration worked behind the scenes to capture photos of the speech that hid the event's location – the Trump International Hotel.
SBA's first production in response to our FOIA request for documents regarding Administrator McMahon's attendance at the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry at the Trump International Hotel.
