New White House Usher a Former Trump Hotel Employee

Posted June 26, 2017

Historically, chief ushers - who act as a kind of general manager - have come to the job with deep experience within the White House and gone on to serve long tenures.

Timothy Harleth was named the new White House chief usher in an announcement from the office of first lady Melania Trump.

The chief usher is essentially tasked with setting the White House's interior aesthetic, and Harleth managed more than 100 employees as director of rooms for Trump's D.C. hotel.

The Daily Mail made the Jacqueline Kennedy comparison to Mrs. Trump for her soft-spoken voice and flawless appearance as she stood alongside her husband in the White House. But the watchdog groups suspect Trump has not done so based on his own conflicting statements about whether there are recordings of conversations between himself and former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey. "So it's really special place and I love it here".

She has been criticised for continuing to live in NY - and costing the American tax payer millions of dollars in security - while President Trump resided alone in the White House following his inauguration in January.

Norm Eisen, a former Obama ethics chief who is part of a group suing Trump over business dealings they consider conflicts, saw the Harleth hiring as part of a troubling trend of the new administration leaning on "family and personal retainers".

Ms. Reid and Admiral Rochon, who is retired, are two of three living former chief ushers.

From early on in this Administration, White House staff have used and, on information and belief, continue to use certain email messaging applications that destroy the contents of messages as soon as they are read, without regard to whether the messages are presidential records.
