More than 40% of Trump's first Cabinet-level picks have faced ethical or other controversies

President trump came to Washington promised to "drain the swamp," but after less than 13 months, more than 40 percent of the people he originally picked for Cabinet-level jobs have faced ethical or other controversies.

The list has grown quickly in recent weeks.

In total now, 9 out of the 22 people Trump initially picked for Cabinet-level posts have found themselves facing scrutiny over their actions.

Here's a quick summary:


- Veteran's Affairs Secretary David Shulton
- EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt
- Former Health & Human Services Secretary Tom Price
- Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke
- Treasury Secretary Steven Munchin


- Chief-of-Staff John Kelly
- Attorney General Jeff Sessions


- Labor Secretary nominee Andrew Pudzer
- HUD Secretary Ben Carson

Not all of these are created equal - nor are they all scandal-level situations.
But they do highlight what has been a pretty rocky first year-plus for the Trump Cabinet.

The repeated travel controversies, in particular, suggest the administration isn't running a particularly tight ethical ship or that there is a ton of over-compensation for Trump's promise to "Drain the Swamp."
