Man Bites Dog


Maybe make that MAN NIBBLES DOG.

This morning brings news about Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chair of the House Oversight Committee, who has thus far lacked interest in overseeing Minority President Trump’s conflicts of interest.

Trump leased DC’s Old Post Office Building and turned it into Trump International Hotel. The good congressman wants to mull over whether Trump is in breach of a

provision in the lease [which] indicates that no “elected official of the Government of the United States … shall be admitted to any share or part of this Lease, or to any benefit that may arise therefrom.”

Aardvark can’t imagine why anyone would see a problem here.
