Pence was formally put in charge of Trump’s transition team Tuesday evening, according to Fox News, replacing Gov. Chris Christie.
The transition team had been stacked with lobbyists whom Christie had brought in, much to the disapproval of Trump, who was elected in a grassroots movement to eliminate influence from people just like them.
The presence of lobbyists on the transition team has drawn the ire of both the left and the right.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, an extremely well-known supporter of former Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, threatened Trump, demanding he remove more than 20 members of his transition team with ties to Wall Street and big business, according to Fox News.
“If you refuse, I will oppose you, every step of the way, for the next four years,” Warren reportedly wrote.
“I will champion the millions of Americans you will fail to protect. I will track your every move, and I will remind Americans, every day, of the actions you take that fail them.”
Now, there aren’t a lot of conservatives who care about what Warren says at any given time, but she may have a point. There’s not a lot of progress that can be made while positions of power are stacked with lobbyists with ulterior motives.
That’s just maintaining the swamp, and Pence is right to purge the lobbyists.
