How much I trust this 'transparent', 'ethical', 'hopey-changey' president and his minions:

"...less than one tenth of one percent..."

That is, they permit certain Executive Branch appointees to work on particular matters that may involve persons with which the appointees formerly had a professional relationship because there was a compelling public interest in allowing it. In each case, it was determined by an agency ethics officer after careful review that the public interest in permitting the appointee’s participation outweighed any appearance concerns.

And who exactly is it that determines the definition of compelling public interest?
