(TheConservativeNews.org) – Established in 2017, WestExec is a “strategic advisory firm” that offers consultancy services to business leaders. It brands itself a “bipartisan team of senior national security leaders” that can leverage a wealth of geopolitical experience to help international firms make the best decisions for their global performance.
So, why is any of this relevant to the world of American politics? Well, as it happens, WestExec’s company name appears on the resumes of no fewer than 15 Biden administration figures, including Press Secretary Jen Psaki and Secretary of State Antony Blinken. In fact, Blinken is one of the firm’s co-founders.
On Tuesday, July 6, The Intercept published a report highlighting this finding. It discussed how uncommon it was for so many alumni of such a young company to end up in administration positions together at once. It also revealed there are controversies around the fact WestExec clients have interests in areas like defense and tech. The company’s former employees could now act to further these interests through their positions in Washington, DC.
The Intercept pulled no punches when discussing this arrangement, going so far as to call it “legalized corruption.” It’s certainly worrying that a secretive, high-powered consultancy firm has such close connections to the presidential administration. Are these White House staffers really acting with the average American citizen in mind?
