Johnny McEntee, an ex-college quarterback, heads a sweeping White House effort to purge the civil service and install loyalists. McEntee summoned cabinet liaisons to the White House last week to tell
them to root out Trump critics in their ranks, according to reporting
by Axios. McEntee has also put a freeze on political appointments and
told colleagues that the White House would be selecting cabinet deputies
from now on, according to the New York Times.
