Default Russia probe scares off potential appointees

Russia probe scares off potential appointees

The growing scandal is giving some candidates cold feet ó and distracting aides from finding new recruits.....



President Donald Trumpís effort to fill hundreds of vacant jobs across the federal government has hit a new snag: Russia. Potential hires are paying close attention to the expanding investigations, which have now begun to touch senior Trump aides, with some questioning whether they want to join the administration. According to the nonpartisan Partnership for Public Service, the White House has announced nominees for just 117 of the 559 most important Senate-confirmed positions. That trails the records of Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, who had each nominated about twice as many people by this point in the first year of their first terms. Trump has not yet nominated a No. 2 at the Agriculture Department, Education Department, Department of Veterans Affairs or Environmental Protection Agency, and dozens of top positions at every federal agency remain vacant. Trumpís nominees for deputy secretary of Commerce and Treasury both withdrew.
Trump intended to name a new FBI Director before he left on his foreign tour. That was eleven days ago. The appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel investigating the Trump administration for collusion with Russia is a major warning sign to potential job seekers.
