Vice President-elect Mike Pence is reportedly kicking all lobbyists off the transition team, according to The Wall Street Journal.
An unidentified source within the transition team told the Journal that it was one of Pence’s first moves since taking over the effort from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was ousted last week.
Pence officially took control of the transition efforts on Tuesday, according to a document sent to the White House.
Since Christie’s removal, many of his appointees on the team have also been dismissed, and the transition effort has been taken over by campaign loyalists.
Trump had been under fire for having a transition team filled with lobbyists and other insiders, given his campaign pledge to “drain the swamp.” There had been roughly a dozen registered lobbyists working in and around the transition team, reports have said.
