Former ethics director for Barack Obama, Walter Shaub, is criticizing the Biden administration over reports of its apparent conflicts of interest.

In an interview on Thursday, Shaub said Joe Biden’s aides appear to be involved in so-called “influence-peddling operations,” which poses a problem for the country. He also denounced Biden’s practice of hiring family members related to his top aides and Hunter’s art sales.

However, this is not the first time Shaub has raised concerns within the Biden administration. Shaub took to Twitter in June to react to an article that referenced family ties of Biden officials.

“I’m sorry, I know some folks don’t like hearing criticism of him. But this royally sucks,” wrote Shaub. “I’m disgusted.”

Reports also found Biden’s Climate Envoy John Kerry invested in a solar panel business in China, while the son-in-law of Attorney General Merrick Garland has been selling critical race theory materials and the Department of Justice has attempted to accuse concerned parents of domestic terror.

Shaub said these occurrences are “absolutely appalling.”
