Since Donald Trump became president in January, he and more than 400 of his appointees have together filed thousands of pages worth of information concerning their assets, income, business ties — and potential conflicts of interest.
The Center for Public Integrity and Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting are today asking you help us tell the stories that are hidden in these records by becoming a #CitizenSleuth.
Scour our searchable, sortable and public database of Trump administration financial disclosures to probe the mysterious companies contained within.
Or perhaps you have a tip about how a key Trump administration official’s friends or colleagues stand to benefit from knowing a presidential confidant.
Maybe you’ll simply spot something that looks strange — missing data, possible errors, someone's unusual work history or a business listing that doesn’t actually exist.
We’ve worked hard to make these complex records as easy to understand as possible. And we’re here to investigate your tips and answer your questions.
● Leave a public comment within our database. Start at the first tab, on the lower left, and work your way across from left to right. If you see something interesting, make a note in the “Comments” section available for every cell in the spreadsheet.
● Email tips to firstname.lastname@example.org.
● Reach out to us on Twitter using the hashtag #CitizenSleuth, first employed earlier this year as part of a successful effort to unmask donors to Trump’s inaugural committee.
