The 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.
