TheGreatBuzz Posted November 7, 2020 Share Posted November 7, 2020 (edited) I thought it would be fun and useful to have a thread tracking former Trump staff/officials. I started a list of who I thought might be interesting just off the top of my head. I was going to look them all up but figured there was no reason to not share the workload. I’ll try to keep the OP updated as we go. The list at the moment still has current staff on it also but are people I think we should keep an eye on after January. Hopefully, we can see many of them in legal troubles. Anyways, enjoy!! Former Trump officials: -Rex Tillerson: Quote Tillerson has been laying low, likely enjoying time at his new lavish Texas home. He and his wife, Renda, operate a horse ranch in the state called Bar RR Ranches. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/rex-tillerson-where-is-he-now -John Bolton: Quote On June 16, 2020, the Trump Justice Department attempted to block publication of Bolton's memoir, The Room Where It Happened, seeking to confiscate Bolton's $2 million advance for breach of contract, asserting he had not completed the prepublication security review as he had agreed to receive his security clearance. On June 21, a pirated copy of the book appeared online. The book was released on June 23. Later that summer, the Justice Department opened a criminal investigation into whether the book revealed classified information, empaneling a grand jury that subpoenaed the publisher’s communications records.. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Bolton -Gen. James Mattis: Quote Former U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is rejoining General Dynamics’ board of directors, the company announced Thursday in a news release. https://www.defensenews.com/industry/2019/08/08/general-dynamics-re-welcomes-mattis-to-board-of-directors/ -Rick Perry: Quote January 1, 2020 - Perry is appointed as a director of the general partner that controls Energy Transfer LP, a pipeline company. https://www.cnn.com/2013/02/28/us/rick-perry-fast-facts/index.html -Steve Bannon: Quote He's currently in the market for a new lawyer since his previous lawyer dropped him once he made the statement about beheading Fauci. -Michael Flynn: Quote WASHINGTON – The criminal case against Michael Flynn should not be immediately dismissed, a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., ruled Monday in a major setback for President Donald Trump's former national security adviser, who has proclaimed his innocence. Flynn is one of half a dozen former Trump aides and advisers who were indicted as a result of the special counsel investigation on Russian election interference. Flynn pleaded guilty in 2017 to making false statements to the FBI about his communications with a former Russian ambassador. He later reversed course, claiming investigators entrapped him into making false statements. The Justice Department also reversed course and sought to dismiss the case, arguing that the interview during which Flynn made false statements was "unjustified." https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/08/31/michael-flynn-ex-trump-national-security-adviser-loses-dismissal-bid/3406896001/ UPDATE: https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1331706255212228608?s=21 -John Kelly: Quote Following his departure from the White House in January 2019, Kelly joined the board of directors for Caliburn International. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_F._Kelly -Sean Spicer: Quote Starting in March 2020, Spicer hosts a political talk show for the channel Newsmax TV called Spicer & Co. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sean_Spicer#Post-White_House_activities -Kellyanne Conway: I know she was supposed to leave the WH.
