Climate Hawks Votes has just released this very intereting statement pertaining to today’s revelations and arrests:

News reports indicate that Trump USDA chief scientist nominee Sam Clovis hired both Carter Page and George Papadopoulos for the Trump presidential campaign. Furthermore, Clovis acted as supervisor to George Papadopoulos and encouraged Papadopoulos to go to Moscow during the 2016 presidential campaign. Senate Agriculture Committee chair Pat Roberts of Kansas has set a nomination hearing date of November 9 for Clovis to be undersecretary of Agriculture for research, education and economics.

Climate Hawks Vote president RL Miller states: “Clovis was a supervisor of Russian outreach at the Trump campaign and is now about to be rewarded with a USDA chief scientist appointment. What’s Clovis going to science at USDA, Russian caviar?”

Clovis’ appointment hearing is November 9. He is not a scientist. He was, however, a co-chair of the Trump campaign, who hired Carter Page and who supervised Papadopoulos. Papadopoulos has pled guilty to lying to the FBI. Climate Hawks Vote was one of the first organizations to call for blocking Clovis’ confirmation, and is part of a coalition that has collected over 400,000 signatures in opposition to the nomination.

  1. Given their performance, I don’t think Trump would want to reward him with anything. What else did Clovis do for him?

  2. Clovis might actually be a good pick for chief USDA scientist. Firstly, he has the experience of having consumed a lot of agricultural products. Secondly, he retired as the “ Inspector General of the North American Aerospace Defense Command and the United States Space Command.” During his reign, there were no attacks on the US by space aliens. Also, no agricultural products were lost in space during his tenure. Third, his familiarity with Russia and Russians means that he can help foster transfer of Lyshenkoistic agricultural technology to the US. Fourthly, his ability to resist the temptation to believe in climate science means that no USDA dollars will be wasted trying to find out how best to bolster US Agriculture against changing climate. Fifthly, he has a degree in Political Science, which sounds kind of sciencey. I would say he is a choice whom Vladimir Putin could really get behind..
