One person who undoubtedly knew what Trump was talking about last month was Jeff Miller, an energy lobbyist with whom the president had dined the night before.Although Trump didn't agree to the plan – he still hasn't – for Miller, a president's public declaration of interest amounted to a job well done.When Perry came to Washington, Miller did, too.Besides Perry, Miller is close to other Trump-era power players. Miller, who lives in Texas, spent years outside of Washington independently developing an "amazing" network of connections, Walsh said.He described Miller as a "straight shooter" and rejected the notion that he is cashing in on Trump's election and Perry's ascension to energy chief.Miller registered as a lobbyist in Washington in February 2017, just after Trump took office.Miller has earned $330,000 from FirstEnergy since last year, making him one of the company's highest-paid outside lobbyists.Miller has visited the Energy Department at least twice since June, including on the day Trump delivered a speech on his energy agenda at the agency's Washington headquarters.FirstEnergy said it supports the premise, although it says it has not specifically urged Perry to use the defense law.
