Mike Pence has returned to Washington.The "new world" of Trump's Washington was supposed to be one with fewer Bill Smiths. Smith works with technology, defense, energy and insurance companies, among others.Does that mean he's part of what Trump described as the swamp?Scott Mason, who was Trump's chief liaison to the House through the campaign and transition, joined the government affairs firm Holland & Knight as a senior policy adviser this month.Indeed, neither Trump nor his top advisers has condemned any of the former Trump team members' spin through the revolving door of Washington.Trump's former campaign national field director, Stuart Jolly, signed on as president of Sonoran Policy Group and has already helped connect the firm's clients, including the New Zealand Embassy, with new administration.Some inside Trump's White House also have close ties to the government relations world that Trump derided during the campaign.Gingrich immediately followed up his two decades in the House by helping to connect paying clients to his former colleagues. He's not taking a job in the Trump administration but says he will provide Trump strategic advice.
