Trump’s Political Appointees

President Trump has made it clear that he values personal loyalty above experience or competence — and he has appointed hundreds of new officials across the federal government. The public has a right to know who these appointees are, what backgrounds they bring to their work, and whether they have any conflicts of interest.

Background

From the resignation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to the widely decried selection of a Trump family associate to oversee billions in federal housing funds, the Trump administration has been marked by the appointment of underqualified or ethically questionable government officials.

Several appointees have withdrawn from consideration for positions because they were unable to separate themselves from personal and business interests. There are others who maintain significant, complex business ties and large and diverse financial interests. Without transparency, the public cannot have confidence that government decisions will be shaped by the interests of the American people, not by personal or professional allegiances.

American Oversight has received a number of responses from federal agencies containing resumes of Trump’s political appointees and we have submitted a second round of FOIAs seeking even more records to continue the investigation.

What We’re Seeking

  • Records identifying the political appointees at nearly two dozen federal agencies, including their job titles, resumes, and any ethics waivers they may have received;
  • Communications — including emails and text messages — related to the conflicts of interest or industry ties of Trump’s appointees; 
  • Calendar entries of political appointees, including invitations to events, meetings, planned phone calls, and official trips; and 
  • Records concerning the firing of former Veterans Affairs Deputy Secretary James Byrne from the same time as the agency was criticized over its handling of a report of sexual assault at a VA hospital;
  • Records from multiple federal agencies regarding inspectors general resignations and replacements, including resumes and ethics documents of new appointees.
