Trump Commerce Head Reported To Have Lied Duirng Confirmation Hearing

If by chance you continue to final to consider, or better yet, understand that Donald Trump shepherded a herd of crony "swamp things" into the US federal government you truly live in a closet. Moreover, I am afraid your closet has no door latch.

NBC offers a detailed written piece about yet another example of a Trump appointee who seems to have lied during his Congressional confirmation hearings.

Wilbur Ross, the commerce secretary in the Trump administration, shares business interests with Vladimir Putin’s immediate family, and he failed to clearly disclose those interests when he was being confirmed for his cabinet position.
 In June 2017, trump boosted about his aversion to non-wealthy people assisting in running his economy (swamp):

CNBC Trump: 'I just don't want a poor person' running the economy

Has any Trump appointee not lied during a confirmation hearing? I am now wondering if being a profuse and ever-ready liar wasn't a Trump appointee litmus test. Maybe there-in lies his inability orlack of interest in filling many key cabinet positions.
