Trump has added 36 lobbyist to gov positions. Maybe he's thinking if he loads the swamp so heavy it will explode under its own weight?

Below is a clip from an article. Below this I will post the link to the full ProPublica list of Trump Hires.

This motley crew was hired in secret with their identities kept under wraps until Pro Publica used public records requests to reveal their identities, down to little Danny Tiso, who just graduated from high school in 2015, but is now a senior manager at the Department of Labor, having filled the intervening time campaigning for one Donald J Trump (who campaigned on a pledge of "draining the swamp".

Also included are the likes of Alexandra Campau, a healthcare lobbyist now fronting for the department of Health and Human Services; Justin Mikolay, former Palantir lobbyist, now installed at the DoD; and Chad Wolf, a former defense lobbyist now an official "advisor" to the TSA -- they are part of a cohort of 36 registered lobbyists that are among the crop of gators that Trump brought to the swamp with him. That's a big undercount of lobbyists, too: most lobbyists exploit loopholes that let them get away without registering.

Jon Perdue, a self-described guerrilla warfare expert and fellow at a little-known security think tank, wrote a book called “The War of All the People: The Nexus of Latin American Radicalism and Middle Eastern Terrorism.” He is also a onetime contributor to Breitbart.

Perdue was featured on CNBC’s reality series “Make Me a Millionaire Inventor” for his invention, the Packbow, which Perdue came up with while studying “collapsed societies, and what people who lived in those societies came up with to either defend themselves or to survive.” It’s a bow and arrow that doubles as a compass, tent pole, walking stick, spearfishing rig, and water purification tablet receptacle.

Perdue was hired as a special assistant at the Treasury Department. The agency didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

John Jaggers ran the Trump campaign in Maryland and Virginia, where he made headlines for endorsing the conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton was “very, very sick and they’re covering it up.” As he put it last August: “The woman who seeks to be the first female president of the United States wears a wool coat at every single thing. Have you ever stopped to wonder why? It’s a big deal, folks.”

Jaggers was hired Jan. 20 as senior adviser at the General Services Administration, which oversees tens of billions of dollars of government procurement every year. But records show he left the job on March 3. He declined to comment.

How can they claim it is secret when they are recorded on public records?

Anybody can read public records.

Apparently the reason they call it secret was that the Trump Administration would not provide any information concerning the hires.

"with the White House declining to publicly reveal their identities"

Propublica went the extra step and applied for the freedom of information to get the full list of hires. The reason this was necessary was that these "beach head" hires do not require senate approval/vetting.

How can you call this propaganda when all that was provided was the full list of information. I challenge you to look up any of the names on the list to verify for your self what the background of the candidate is in relation to the position for which they were hired.

Do you think it makes sense to hire a kid who is two years out of high school for a federal job? What qualifications does a teenager have that would make him the best candidate to work at the department of labor? Other than work as a campaign worker for President Trump in New Hampshire, he has no qualifications.

"Tiso, according to LinkedIn, worked for the Trump campaign in New Hampshire as an event coordinator. His previous work experience consists of four internships and, per a quick Google search, he made a school honor roll in 2010. When he was in sixth grade."

Come on guys, I know that some of you want to believe President Trump is the messiah, but he is a reality show star who was born a millionaire. Yes he took that money and made more money, but he has also lost a lot of money and was elected under questionable circumstances. I say questionable because our federal law enforcement officials have stated Russia worked to manipulate our elections. They have formally stated that Russia worked to damage the chances of Secretary Clinton. If they worked only to damage the chances of Clinton getting elected, then by simple rationalization they must have been working to get Trump elected.

Just read the facts for yourselves. Don't just believe what Fox/Breitbart/etc tells you.

Actually I don't but you must admit ProPublica favors the left. What every hire has to go though the lefts screening? Not to mention " secretly" hired is a bit of a stretch as public records are just that public.

He never said he wasn't going to hire lobbyists. What he DID say is that anybody coming to work for him will not be able to be a lobbyist for 5 years after they leave. BIG difference. You WANT lobbyists in your admin. They know people, they know the dirt.

What's the problem? He worked on the Trump campaign and impressed the man and was put to work. You act like he's running the DOL........................ I have no problem with it at all for all we know he just may be a great employee.
I will add that your left wing source got the bio on the guy from his Linkedin page. That's some investigative reporting isn't it?

"ProPublica says that Tiso's LinkedIn page identified him as having graduated from high school in 2015,"

It is propaganda by the way it was presented.

The article tried to represent the hirings of Trump as a "secret event" when anyone can gain access.

Of course Trump wouldn't waste his time spoon feeding Propublica any information.

If Propublica knows of any criminal connections with these people, then they are obligated to speak up.

But instead of actually revealing any criminal information, they have resorted to "suggestions and innuendos".

Yeah it is propaganda..
