For years the image of who drives change in our democracy has reflected an old narrative of straight white men in smoky rooms.

We’re the only daily political news platform that highlights the people of color driving policy in the nation’s capital and beyond, and the policies that impact communities of color at large. 

Antitrust Chief Could be Next Attorney General 

Antitrust Chief Could be Next Attorney General 

Makan Delrahim has emerged as a possible Attorney General pick for Donald Trump. The Iranian-born lawyer is currently an Assistant Attorney General supervising the Antitrust Division. He led the government's suit to block AT&T's takeover of Time Warner Inc. -- a move that puzzled a number of legal experts and contradicted Delrahim's own prior stance. As a deputy to then-White House Counsel Don McGahn, Delrahim helped shepherd the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. The 49-year-old has already been confirmed, so it would be harder to justify rejecting him should he come up for confirmation as AG. The 1991 UCLA grad completed law school at George Washington University and later earned a Master's from Johns Hopkins University in 2002. CNN asked why the White House would like Delrahim, a former White House official told them, "He was our guy." Matt Whitaker is currently the Acting Attorney General. Other names the president is reportedly considering for AG include former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Florida's Republican Attorney General Pam BondiMore here
