NPC Headliner Newsmaker with Former Director of Office of Government Ethics Walter Shaub

July 28, 2017 10:00 AM

Location: Lisagor Room

This event is open only to members of The National Press Club and credentialed press.

Walter M. Shaub, Jr., who served until July 19 as the Director of the Office of Government Ethics will address a National Press Club Headliners Newsmaker at 10 a.m., Friday, July 28 in the club's Lisagor Room.

Shaub resigned earlier this month, short of completing a five-year term that began in January 2013, after a tumultuous six months in which he openly demanded that the White House make public all ethics waivers granted to Presidential appointees and raised questions about President Trump's refusal to divest his business holdings.

He also called for the Office of Government Ethics to be granted greater authority to obtain information related to how and why recusals and waivers from existing ethics laws are granted to appointees.

Since leaving the government, Shaub has joined the Campaign Legal Center, where he plans to be an advocate for ethics reform at all levels of government.

The National Press Club is located on the 13th Floor of the National Press Building at 529 14th St., NW, Washington, D.C. This news conference is open to credentialed media and NPC members free of charge, but advance registration is required.
