President Trump's attorneys tried to get Trump excused from certifying that his 2016 personal finance disclosure is correct, The Associated Press found from letters obtained in a Freedom of Information Act request. "Attorney Sheri Dillon said she saw no need for Trump to sign [and certify] his 2016 personal financial disclosure because he is filing voluntarily this year," AP writes. Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub refused Dillon's request, saying that the office would only work with Dillon "on the condition that the president is committed to certifying that the contents of his report are true, complete, and correct." Dillon apparently agreed, saying Trump would "sign and file" the documents by mid-June.
