Trump appointments and nominations

Editor's note: Politico reports Rudy Giuliani's paid consulting for foreign governments may present conflicts of interests if Donald Trump decides to nominate him for the secretary of state post. Some of these ties surfaced when the former New York mayor ran for president in 2007, including a New York Times report that a law firm Giuliani joined as a named partner lobbied for the U.S. subsidiary Venezuela's state oil company, which was then controlled by President Hugo Chavez. Politico also points to reports of a subsidiary of Giuliani's consulting firm advising Qatar's state-run oil company as well as a Singapore gambling project that had ties to a person close to the North Korean regime. There are multiple reports that Giuliani is the leading choice to be secretary of state in Trump's administration, and if chosen, he would face Senate confirmation. - Stephanie
