A group led by Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is driving a White House effort to purge government officials seen as "disloyal" to President Donald Trump and replace them with vocal supporters who regularly appear on Fox News, according to Axios.

Trump recently rehired Johnny McEntee, a 29-year-old personal aide to Trump who was abruptly fired in 2018 amid an investigation over "serious financial crimes," to lead the presidential personnel office and purge officials believed to be "anti-Trump," Axios reported last week.

This effort has apparently been in the works since at least 2018, when Thomas' group Groundswell submitted a number of memos urging the firing of so-called "Never Trump" and "Deep State" officials as aides complained that the government was filled with "snakes," according to the report.
