So, that Dakota pipeline thing. Trump owned shares in it you know. As Salon, Think Progress et al have been screaming all week. Conflict of interest!
President-elect Donald Trump sold all his shares in companies in June, his spokesman said Tuesday, a move that could have created a cash windfall as he ramped up to begin a costly general election presidential campaign that at the time he claimed he would personally support with “major contributions.”
Not so much I think. I reckon that’s about when he really thought he was going to win so why not prepare that petard for them to be hoist upon?
I wonder whether we’ll see a walk back on those conflict of interest claims?
