Trump revokes ethics order barring former aides from lobbying

Shortly after pardoning members of Congress and lobbyists convicted on corruption charges, President Trump revoked an executive order barring former officials from lobbying for five years after leaving his administration.

Why it matters: The order, which was signed eight days after he took office, was an attempt to fulfill his campaign promise to "drain the swamp."

But with less than 12 hours left in office, Trump has now removed those limitations on his own aides.
