Summary

“At the moment, it’s me and my laptop, at home,” Bharat Ramamurti, the lone appointed member of the Congressional Oversight Commission, told VICE News on Thursday. “A lot of this money is going to big companies, right?,” Ramamurti said. He insisted there’s no need for outside scrutiny, saying breezily, “I’ll be the oversight.” While some parts of the loans available to the Trump administration come with restrictions written into the law, the nitty-gritty details of the rules make it possible for the administration to oversee trillions of dollars in loans to big corporations with very little accountability, according to Ramamurti. Ramamurti’s Congressional Oversight Commission was created by the CARES Act, which says that the five members are supposed to be appointed by the majority and minority leaders of the House and Senate, with a chairperson agreed on by Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
