The New York Times: Trump Fills Top Job at Government Ethics Office With a Temporary Appointment


President Trump picked a new leader for the Office of Government Ethics on Friday, naming the agency’s general counsel, David J. Apol, as the acting director.


Mr. Shaub has taken a job at the Campaign Legal Center, a nonprofit group where he hopes to push for changes in federal law to give the Office of Government Ethics more power to police the White House. He said he was disappointed that Mr. Trump did not name a permanent replacement, or pick the agency’s chief of staff, Shelley K. Finlayson, who under vacancy rules adopted recently would normally become the acting director.
