Pam Bondi, former Florida attorney general who joined the Sunshine State's Ballard Partners in January, is expected to take a communications post at the White House and work on impeachment messaging.
A frequent guest on Fox News, Bondi is a favorite of president Trump, who considered her for the AG spot vacated by Jeff Sessions.
NBC News reports that Bondi is going to have “special government employee” status, which allows people with special skills in the private sector to work part time for the federal government under less stringent ethics rules than other staffers.
Bondi will end her lobbying work for Ballard Partners next week but will remain with the firm until her background checks are complete.
She heads the corporate regulatory compliance practice at Ballard Partners, which is headed by Brian Ballard, who chaired president Trump’s fundraising campaign during the 2016 election.
