Corruption in the United States is the act of government officials abusing their political powers for private gain, typically through bribery or other methods.
Corruption in the United States is a growing problem across many areas, particularly in the political spectrum. In 2020, Transparency International ranked the United States as the 25th least corrupt country (of 180 countries ranked),[1] falling from 18th since 2016.[2] This ranking places the United States between Bhutan (24) and Chile (26) on corrupt practices in government and other institutions. In 2019, Transparency International stated that the United States is "experiencing threats to its system of checks and balances", along with an "erosion of ethical norms at the highest levels of power".[3]
