Acting Chair of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights: Who Is Patricia Timmons-Goodson?

In 2016, President Barack Obama nominated Timmons-Goodson to the U.S. District Court in eastern North Carolina.

The seat had been vacant since 2006, but Timmons-Goodson’s nomination was blocked by Republican Senator Richard Burr. It was the second time Burr had blocked an Obama nominee for that seat; the first nominee was also a black woman, Jennifer May-Parker.   read more

He has served on the boards of more than a dozen medical companies and has held leadership positions in a number of others. “He’s basically been a shill for pharmaceutical corporations for much of his career,” said Public Citizen director Dr. Michael Carome.

Chair of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars: Who Is Thomas Nides?

An active Wall Street Democrat, Nides raised more than $100,000 as a Hillary Clinton bundler in 2008, and provided informal advice to her 2016 run. Wikileaks revealed that he had advised Clinton campaign Chair Podesta in 2015 to “pull the official” emails off of Clinton’s private server, exclaiming that “you know as well as I every god damn cabinet officer and WH staff uses there (sic) gmail account!” The Wilson Center, which Nides heads, would be fully defunded under Trump's proposed budget.   read more
