Which Trump administration appointees were under scrutiny?
- by admin
On Friday, the White House released the names of four Trump administration nominees for the Department of Health and Human Services.
The officials are the same four who were fired by the president last week.
The president was widely criticized for firing the people.
One of the four has not been confirmed for a job, and one has not yet been confirmed.
That means that there are still at least three Trump administration officials who have been under intense scrutiny since he was inaugurated, even if they have not been named publicly.
Here’s what you need to know about the four nominees and the administration’s response to the controversy.
President Trump has nominated to be deputy secretary of the Department for Health and Family Services, a former HHS secretary.
He has not named a replacement for his former secretary of labor, Elaine Chao.
A second nominee to be HHS secretary has not received the votes needed to move forward with the nomination.
And a third nominee to fill the position of deputy secretary for public health and safety has not cleared Senate confirmation.
The first two were confirmed by the Senate.
Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he expects that the Senate will vote to confirm both Chao and Chao’s replacement, HHS Secretary John Kelly.
The Senate Foreign Affairs Committee has not previously confirmed Kelly for a top cabinet post, nor has the committee’s ranking Democrat, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D–HI), said she expected to be confirmed as Kelly’s replacement.
Kelly, who is an orthopedic surgeon, has received praise from Democrats for his leadership and leadership on border security.
Kelly also has been praised by Republicans for his handling of the Ebola outbreak in the United States.
In the past year, Kelly has helped bring down the number of confirmed Ebola cases in the U.S., which has seen a spike in the number and severity of cases.
Trump has also nominated former Rep. Joe Crowley (D) to be the deputy assistant secretary for international trade and international cooperation, the position that Crowley has held since being appointed by former President Barack Obama.
Crowley was fired in February after he was accused of sexually assaulting three women.
Crowley did not respond to a request for comment.
The deputy assistant Secretary for International Trade and International Cooperation is a Cabinet position that has been filled by the head of the State Department.
A number of senior administration officials have been removed or been reassigned from their posts in recent months after they were accused of inappropriate behavior with interns.
The number of White House officials under investigation is significant because it is also a significant increase from the number who have previously been fired.
The Trump administration has not confirmed that the women who have accused former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus of sexual misconduct were false accusers.
The White House has also not confirmed the number or nature of other sexual misconduct allegations against former White and Deputy White House Chief of Staff and chief strategist Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Trump’s transition team did not immediately respond to requests for comment about the two officials.
On Friday afternoon, the Justice Department said that the White Board of Review that reviews personnel decisions is investigating allegations of sexual harassment by White House counsel Don McGahn.
The office did not comment further on McGahn’s firing, which occurred during the summer of 2017.
In a letter to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D—NY), Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that he has asked his staff to review the process for the removal of White house counsel Donald McGahn and other White House aides accused of sexual assault or harassment.
Schumer said he has also asked Sessions to investigate allegations of retaliation against a former White Senate staffer who has said that her harasser was White House Counsel McGahn in a memo that Sessions released Friday.
Schumer also said he wants to see the White house to release a list of all its employees who have received disciplinary actions.
He said that White House staff members should not be subject to retaliation if they report an alleged harassment or assault to anyone in the executive branch.
“The White House should take immediate action to eliminate retaliation and harassment against its employees,” Schumer said.
Sessions said in his letter that his office will also review the removal and suspension of three employees, who were accused in a letter by two former Whitehouse staffers.
“They are now working at the Department’s Office of Compliance to ensure they are complying with their legal obligations to report allegations of harassment or abuse,” Sessions said.
Trump is also expected to nominate a former Marine general to be secretary of defense.
In January, the Pentagon’s chief of personnel, retired Marine General James Amos, was fired by Trump.
Amos was also fired by former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis after he left the administration in May.
Amos has been criticized for his efforts to make sure Trump’s controversial border wall between the U:S.
and Mexico is completed.
Amos is the former chief of the Marine Corps Reserve, which oversees the Marine forces.
In March, the Senate voted to confirm Amos for the job.
