The Trump Administration funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars to at least eight "former White House, presidential transition and campaign officials" for Donald Trump to be "outside contractors" for a taxpayer funded Federal grant meant to prop up CMS Administrator Seema Verma's "personal brand" and to provide her “strategic communications” support. Each of Donald's cronies up to $380 an hour for "work traditionally handled by dozens of career civil servants in CMS's communications department."
