he lobbyist for Jeff Bezos, Big Pharma, and a company the U.S. has national security concerns about could become D.C.’s “most powerful unelected man” if Kevin McCarthy becomes House Speaker.
D.C. lobbyist Jeff Miller is an outside adviser to Kevin McCarthy who has his “ear.” His influence over Kevin McCarthy will shape the Republican agenda if Kevin becomes Speaker.
Miller’s extremely close relationship with McCarthy is without question.
Here is how Politico describes Miller’s relationship — “close confidant, travel companion, helpful fundraiser, and political consigliere.” The New York Times, meanwhile, reported they are the “closest of friends” and reported that “in Washington’s Republican circles, the relationship between lobbyist and leader is well known and Mr. Miller’s word is authoritative.”
Miller’s corporate clients are then of utmost importance.
We’ve already seen Miller’s impact on McCarthy, as Miller was registered as a lobbyist for Apple and Amazon on antitrust. McCarthy has consistently opposed legislation that would break up the Silicon Valley behemoths.
Miller also registered indirectly for Big Tech through a group called the “Connected Commerce Council.” That’s a group funded by Amazon and Google that falsely claimed to represent dozens of small businesses.
Miller’s corporate clients are varied. He’s lobbied for the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America. That’s the Big Pharma association that includes Pfizer as a member.
Think a Speaker McCarthy will go after Pfizer for COVID-19 vaccine issues?
