The group, Public Citizen, announced Monday that it has filed the ethics allegations accusing the Trump administration of lobbyists were appointed without sacrificing government agencies dealing with the issues for which they had lobbied in recent years. Citizens recently sent letters to Ethics Officers calling for the investigation of three dozen lobbyists as a violation of Trump's order issued a week in his term.

"The bottom line is that neither Trump nor his government takes interest and ethics issues seriously," Lisa Gilbert, vice president of public affairs for the public figure, said in a statement. "The Drain of the Marsh" was much more rhetoric of the campaign than a commitment to ethics, and the widespread lack of compliance and enforcement of the Trump Ethics Regulation shows that ethics plays no role in the Trump administration. "
Only six of the 36 former lobbyists' identifications identified by public citizens had publicly issued disclaimers, with the Watchdog claiming that the remaining 30 ex-lobbyists may violate Trump's ethics rules when influencing official actions on issues,

I suspect that the actual number of possible violations is fourfold.
Among the ex-lobbyists are Byron Anderson, a special assistant to the Secretary of Labor who formerly served as Transamerica vice-president for federal affairs, and Andrew the watchdog group Wheeler, a deputy steward of the environmental industry who allegedly campaigned for the coal industry
