Trump transition team “vetting” documents leaked

Nearly 100 Trump transition vetting documents have been leaked to Axios.com.  An initial review reveals the Trump administration knew the people they were appointing were not qualified (at best) or were criminal (at worse).

Nearly 100 internal Trump transition vetting documents leaked to “Axios on HBO” identify a host of “red flags” about officials who went on to get some of the most powerful jobs in the U.S. government. 

Why it matters: The massive trove, and the story behind it, sheds light on the slap-dash way President Trump filled his cabinet and administration, and foreshadowed future scandals that beset his government.
