Editor's note, June 7, 2017: The Center for Public Integrity, in collaboration with ProPublica, has added dozens of new personal financial disclosures to its searchable, sortable database of Trump administration employees and associates. View them here.
On Friday night, the White House began releasing financial disclosures for scores of key employees — including familiar names such as Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway and Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon.
Reporters from dozens of news organizations, including the Associated Press, the New York Times, ProPublica and the Washington Post, then compiled and reported on the documents, which the White House released one-by-one.
The Center for Public Integrity compiled data from those disclosures into a searchable, sortable database, which provide a window into the wealth, assets and business interests of many of the people closest to President Donald Trump. The Center for Public Integrity’s news developer, Chris Zubak-Skees, extracted these details from more than 90 reports, released in PDF format, using a software tool he created.
You can search or download the database for yourself.
Within the disclosures are new details on Bannon’s web of financial ties to billionaire Republican megadonor Robert Mercer and his daughter, Rebekah.
The Center for Public Integrity first published a graphic showing such ties in October, but Zubak-Skees has updated the graphic to show more connections.
