Heritage Foundation Scoops Up Trump DHS Officials

Even though a number of former Trump Administration officials are having trouble finding jobs, the so-called "H" think tanks are scooping them up at a rapid pace.

The latest in the Heritage Foundation, which just announced it has hired three former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials:

  • Chad Wolf, acting secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security
  • Ken Cuccinelli, deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security
  • Mark Morgan, acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection

The conservative think tank says that they will all be fellows in the Heritage Foundation's Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign Policy starting on February 1.  Wolf will have the title of "distinguished visiting fellow" while the other two will have the title of "visiting fellow." 

Here is Think Tank Watch's comprehensive guide to the revolving door of 2021, which is tracking all the Trump officials going into think tank land and all the think tankers going into the Biden Administration.
