Subject: 3 Recommendations for Major Appointments

Jared
I am attaching resumes of 3 individuals who should be a part of the Trump Administration. All are
supporters since before the nomination was secured and have been active in the campaign.

The 3 indivituals are people who I believe advance DT agenda. They will be totally reliable and
responsive to the Trump White House.

I am available to give you details on the work they did in the campaign or on their backgrounds.

Stephen Calk
Calk was active supporter of campaign since April. HE served on the National Economic Policy
Advisory Committee for Trump campaign and has made over 40 television interviews during the course
of the General Election. His background is strong in defense issues, management and finance. His
preference is Secretary of the Army.

Recommended Position:

Secretary of the Army

GOVERNMENT
EXHIBIT
U.S. v. MANAFORT, 1:18-cr-83 (T.S.E.)

Alternative Positions
Undersecretary of the Treasury for Domestic Finance
Undersecretary of the Treasury for International Affairs
Deputy Secretary of Commerce

Pat Sink
Sink is a Republican labor leader with strong ties to Richard Trumpka. His background is in the
construction unions and has served at the National level of leadership. He was actively involved in the
DT labor program in the Midwest. He brings complete loyalty to DT and an ability to work directly with
the National Union leadership. He also is networked in the National Rifle Assn and Law enforcement
communities.

Recommended Position

Alternative Position

Secretary of Labor

Dep, Sec of Labor

Vernon Parker
Vernon Parker was one of the higher level black political appointees in the Bush Administration. He has
been an active supporter of ours since April and worked to help us in the delegate fights at the state
and district levels.

Recommended Position:

Deputy AG, Dept of Justice

As a black appointment, Parker would bring administrative skills to the position and would be a visible
answer to the bogus racist charges that will be leveled against Jeff Sessions.

Alternative positions:
Assistant AG Civil Rights:
The Assistant Attorney General's spot for Civil Rights at Justice will be a hotbed, and the Trump
administration will be under the microscope with every move. Parker was the first ever Assistant

Secretary for Civil Rights at USDA.

Director of Office of Personnel Management, White House
