The Office Of Government Ethics May Have Just Trolled Donald Trump

Did the Office of Government Ethics just throw shade at President Donald Trump on Twitter? It sure seems that way.

Trump fired FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday. On Thursday, it was reported Comey refused Trump’s demand for loyalty at a private dinner in January, something the White House denied.

And on Friday, the ethics office tweeted the following message:

The post did not reference Trump directly, but many tweeters took it to be a subtle dig at the president:

The Secret: Edward Wilson And The Government Conspiracy

The Secret: Edward Wilson And The Government Conspiracy


This book suggests a solution to an episode that has remained a mystery to this day. It is a story involving a king, his mistress, one of Princess Diana’s ancestors and a financial genius. The solution offered here is a hypothesis, but as will be shown, a more plausible one than two published well after Wilson’s death. These earlier accounts written anonymously by authors with a political axe to grind are printed here as appendices, so that readers can compare the three.
