Excerpt from Billionaire Charles Koch, Whose Minions Staffed Up the Trump Administration, Has a Common Bond with Russian Election Interference:

And on the very day of Trump’s inauguration, Koch Industries’ law firm, Jones Day, sent 12 of its law partners to take on key posts in the Trump administration. (See How Did Koch Industries’ Law Firm Grab Control at the White House?)
