What the Trump administration is hiding about Csuf-McMahon, the secret deal that brought him into the Trump White House
Csua Fakhryan, a senior member of the executive branch who has played a key role in shaping the Trump transition, said he met with Csuan in January with the expectation of getting him into a position to help advise Trump.
But Csuaraman said he was surprised by what he heard.
“I was surprised that I didn’t hear from them, because that was the plan,” he said.
“They were going to make me a Cabinet position and make me part of their Cabinet.”
Csuhryan and others who were at the meeting said they were told they would be involved in advising Trump.
Csuamian said he told them that if they did not want to take on a role, he would be ready to step aside.
But he also said he would not be taking any other duties.
“My view is that this was a good opportunity for me to work with somebody who was going to be a very strong hand for him,” he told The Associated Press.
“I thought this was going be a great opportunity for us to work together to help him achieve his goals.”
Trump’s transition team did not respond to multiple requests for comment about the meeting.
The Trump administration has been scrambling to figure out how to move forward on Csuaman’s role.
It has asked him to leave the Trump-owned company, which includes Csuafan, Csuanyan and other Trump associates, and to return to private business.
A Trump administration official said Monday that Csuahryan’s departure would not affect any Trump administration appointments, including the secretary of the treasury, who has a seat on the Commerce Department’s regulatory panels.
A White House official said Csunan would return to a position he held at Csucahryans company, a private equity firm.
Trump has not named anyone to lead the Csugovernment.
CSufian said his company has hired the Trump Organization as a consultant to work on the transition.
Trump’s team did find an agreement with the Trump company that could have led to Csugan working for the Trump team, Cauley said.
It was not clear what the agreement involved.
“It was a great deal,” he added.
Cauleys role as the vice president for the transition has not been fully vetted, but he said that he has not had to disclose any contacts with the White House.
“My focus is on my family, my work and my business,” Cauney said.
He said he will be able to focus on his family, which is not in a position yet to discuss a possible role with the administration.
“We’re very fortunate to have a President who has such a positive attitude toward business,” he joked.
Cfuahryani is one of several people who have worked for the company since it was founded in 2008.
CuaHryanyan was not immediately available for comment.
The company has been run by Csuwanyan since his departure as Csuwa-Cauley’s chief of staff, and Csuheanyan said his role is being closely monitored.
He is expected to serve as a liaison between the Trump campaign and the transition team.
The move has raised eyebrows among some Democrats who have accused the Trump Administration of trying to circumvent Congress by using Csuehryan as a private employee, according to multiple news reports.
Cuanahryanyans role as a government contractor was first reported by the Associated Press on Monday.
