The Trump administration has been working with allies to assemble lists of officials it considers “disloyal” to the president and coming up with potential replacements, according to an Axios report.
Based on anonymous sources, the memos circulated in the White House were produced by individuals, including a GOP staffer and a group of conservative activists named “Groundswell,” which is led by Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
The report also suggests memos produced by Groundswell were given directly to President Trump, giving him recommendations that he hire for various positions, including former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke for a senior role in the Department of Homeland Security. It also suggested that White House aides to identify members of the government who might be anti-Trump.
There were several memos involving other officials according to Axios. The Trump administrations has taken action against other figures that might be perceived as disloyal to Trump, such as recalling U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland from his post earlier this month and removing Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman from the Nationall Security Coucil.
