Here are More than 400 Officials Trump has Quietly Deployed Across the Government

While President Trump has not moved to fill many jobs that require Senate confirmation, he has quietly installed hundreds of officials to serve as his eyes and ears at every major federal agency.

ProPublica has obtained a list of many of them. They include dozens of former lobbyists, Trump campaign staffers and some affiliated with the online far-right. | Related story »

Noteworthy ‘Beachhead’ Team Hires

Curtis Ellis

Special Assistant to the Secretary, Department of Labor

Curtis Ellis was a columnist for WorldNetDaily, a website best known for its years-long embrace of the false notion that President Obama was born outside of the United States. A column on the “The Radical Left’s Ethnic Cleansing of America” earned him a radio interview with top Trump aide Stephen Bannon last year.

Jon Perdue

Special Assistant, Department of the Treasury

Jon Perdue, a 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 was inspired by his study of societal collapse to create a bow-and-arrow-cum-survivalist multi-tool called the Packbow, which he touted on a reality show for inventors.

Timothy Clark

Senior Adviser, Health and Human Services

Timothy Clark, ran a political consulting firm in California. His past clients included PhRMA, the powerful trade group that represents the pharmaceutical industry.

Chad Wolf

Adviser, Department of Homeland Security

A Bush-era Transportation Security Administration official turned lobbyist, Chad Wolf’s clients have included defense and homeland security contractors. He is currently serving as an advisor to the TSA.

Byron Anderson

Special Assistant to the Secretary, Department of Labor

Byron Anderson was a lobbyist for financial services firm Transamerica for over a decade. He fought regulations, such as a rule from the agency he now works at that would require financial advisers to act in the best interests of their clients.

Justin Mikolay

Special Assistant, Office of the Secretary of Defense

Justin Mikolay was previously a lobbyist for Palantir. His title at the tech firm, which has ties to intelligence agencies, was “evangelist.” Before that he was a speechwriter at the Pentagon.

This list represents Trump administration hires primarily made between Jan. 20 and Jan. 30, according to the Office of Personnel Management. At least a few of the officials have since moved to other agencies or left the government.

Grade level refers to the pay scale for federal employees. SES stands for Senior Executive Service, who serve in top positions the government.

† Officials who have left the administration, according to our reporting

†† Obama-era officials temporarily hired to stay on during the Trump administration

* These names were obtained via Freedom of Information Act requests to other federal agencies. Some of these hires were made after Jan. 30 and others were not included in the list provided by the Office of Personnel Management. One employee, Brenton McNeely, appears twice on the list because he appears to have switched departments. ProPublica sent FOIA requests to 24 federal agencies seeking the names of beachhead team members. As of March 17, 2017, nine agencies have so far provided the names while two other agencies had no temporary employees to report.
