There is much speculation that president-elect Trump may announce more appointments today, perhaps even the one garnering the most speculation, Secretary of State. A number of names have been bandied about. Names like Dana Rohrbacher, Rudy Giuliani, John Bolton, and the one his base most despises and mistrusts, Willard Mitt Romney. Is he ignoring the voices he’s obviously heard, disapproving most stridently of Mitt, while others think this is nothing more than a head fake to keep people guessing? The bottom line is he’s in charge and will appoint the one he thinks will best represent him to the world. The one certain thing is that whomever he picks the decision will be his and his alone. Unlike past presidents, he doesn’t need everything poll-tested before he decides on a position.

Cabinet positions are still open for State, Interior, Commerce, Labor, Homeland Security, Health and Human Services, Veterans Affairs, EPA, Agriculture, Treasury, trade representative, administrator of the Small Business Administration, chair of the Council of Economic Advisers, and Office of Management and Budget director.

Congressman Warns DHS Against ‘Burrowing’ Obama Appointees
THIS IS STANDARD DEMOCRAT TACTICS. WHEN A REPUBLICAN ADMINISTRATION TAKES CHARGE, MAKE SURE THEY HAVE ENOUGH PEOPLE INSIDE TO DISRUPT OPERATIONS AND FEED INTEL TO THE MEDIA WHORES
With 57 days until the President-elect takes the oath of office, concerns exist that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) non-career positions might be “converted” to career positions,” the letter reads. “Known as ‘burrowing,’ this practice can damage trust with a new Administration and undermine its new priorities. In April 2016, the Chair of my Oversight and Management Efficiency Subcommittee requested quarterly updates from the Under Secretary for Management on such conversions.
McCaul’s suspicions are well-founded, considering he has historical proof. Since 2009, the agency has converted several non-career positions into career ones, including the Assistant Administrator at the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
