Trump Fires Pentagon Business Advisory Board Members and Get This...

 ...names Corey Lewandowski as one of the replacements.

This is interesting. It seems that Trump is putting allies around the Defense sector


The White House removed nine members of the Pentagon's Defense Business Board on Friday and installed people loyal to President Donald Trump in their place, reports Politico.

Members of the board received a brief email from Joshua Whitehouse, the White House liaison to the Department of Defense, that simply said, “if you are receiving this e-mail, your membership on the Defense Business Board has expired or is coming to an end.”

Removed were Michael Bayer, who until today was board chair,  Arnold Punaro, Atul Vashistha, John O'Connor, David Venlet, Paul Dolan, Scott Dorn, David Walker and David Van Slyke.

Besides Lewandowsk, the other new members are David Bossie, Henry Dreifus, Robert McMahon, Cory Mills, Bill Bruner, Christopher Shank, Joseph Schmidt, Keary Miller, Allen Weh and Earl Matthews.

"These individuals have a proven track record of achievement within their respective fields and have demonstrated leadership that will serve our Department, and our nation well," acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller said in a statement.



  1. I don't know how much help these people will be if/when Trump declares martial law.

  2. What's the purpose of all this shuffling now? Happy for the firings, just not sure of the intent.
