Tarnished by Trump: National security officials struggle to find new jobs – POLITICO

Partly I’m commenting on the article, partly I’m just seeing how this WordPress feature works.
The article portrays former Trump officials not being able to get jobs their field as a problem. But, I don’t think that’s accurate. I think these people not being able to get jobs right now is the system working correctly. The reality is that right now we don’t know who did what and who we can trust, so these people need to be embargoed for a time. Also, there’s way more qualified people in their field than there are jobs for them, so why would an employer take the risk of hiring someone that was part of the Trump Admin?
My money’s on embargoing these folks for a year or so until we have a better idea of just what went on and who did what.
