Local Congressman to Help in Régime Change
News that "U.S. Rep. Chris Collins, a Republican who represents the Buffalo area [and] was the first member of Congress to endorse Trump," has been given his chance to help make America great again — Donald Trump appoints Upstate NY congressman to transition team and Collins named to Trump's transition executive committee. More on the committee and its eclectic list of luminaries:
- Trump’s transition team announced that Collins would become part of the 16-member committee in the same press release where the president-elect named vice president-elect Mike Pence to chair the transition, replacing New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Christie will become a vice chairman, along with Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala.
Other people on the transition's executive committee include Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, Trump Campaign CEO Stephen K. Bannon, businessman Peter Thiel and Trump’s three adult children.
