December 4, 2019 | Media News

Professor Peter Shane has published an op-ed in The Atlantic titled, “The Obscure—But Crucial—Rules the Trump Administration Has Sought to Corrupt.”

“A Senate committee has an opening this week to shed light on what is going on at OIRA under President Trump. Trump has nominated Paul J. Ray, OIRA’s acting administrator and a former law clerk to Justice Samuel Alito, to be OIRA’s next permanent head,” he wrote. “A committee hearing on Ray’s nomination—and the follow-up opportunity to pose written questions for the hearing record—will give senators leverage to demand specific answers to the hard questions about the legality and wisdom of the OIRA program.”
