Response to Report Pam Bondi to Get White House Post: Trump’s “Drain the Swamp” Slogan is Empty Rhetoric
Washington, D.C. — Following news that President-elect Donald Trump may name Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi to a White House position, money-in-politics watchdog Every Voice released the following statement:
“Nothing would more clearly illustrate that Donald Trump’s promise to ‘drain the swamp’ was empty rhetoric than appointing an official to his administration who he illegally donated to for the purpose of stopping an investigation into his shady business,” said David Donnelly, Every Voice president and CEO. “Whether its rewarding big donors with cabinet positions, failing to fully sell off his businesses, or scratching the backs of officials who had his, Trump is showing Americans he’s not serious about changing Washington—he’s quickly becoming a creature of it.”
