The Revolving Door Project has been requesting personal financial disclosures, or Form 278e’s, since the White House made them available. While some of Biden’s appointees have already filed (see our past work covering financial disclosures across the executive branch and White House pharma ties), senior White House officials’ disclosures were only made public by request in late March. High level appointees across government are required to file financial disclosures to reveal and prevent conflicts of interest. Filers must share:
- positions they have held during the past two years
- sources of income from the past calendar year
- any source of compensation worth over $5000 during the past two years
While we are still waiting to receive many requests back, we wanted to share the ones we have received with the public as quickly as possible. The spreadsheet below quickly summarizes relevant findings for each White House appointee and links to their personal financial disclosure.
Unfortunately, the current disclosure regime creates as many questions as it reveals since it does not require filers substantively describe work they may have done for private interests, or even reveal all past corporate clients. Read more about its shortfalls here.
This page will be updated as new financial disclosures are released.
If you would like to request financial disclosures yourself, go to this White House page. For detailed information on other political appointees who do not work in the White House, go to the Office of Government Ethic’s website. Filings for lower level appointees may be requested through the OGE’s online portal or requested by directly sending the Form 201 to the OGE contact at the respective agency where the official works currently, or did work in the past, or will work once they are appointed.
