Biden's pick who said US 'owns' Syrian oil territory draws flak

Corruption in the United States is the worst it has been in almost a decade with democratic institutions in “decay” and abuse of office “at the highest level,” according to an annual global report by Transparency International.

The US fell to a low of 67 out of a maximum possible score of 100 in the annual Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI), the campaign group said in its latest report.

The report cited a broader decay in US political institutions as a major factor contributing to the rise of corruption levels in the country.

Scott Greytak, the group’s advocacy director, said public trust in US elections has been eroded by disinformation and unprecedented amounts of untraceable money in campaigns.
