The media is spinning Olivia Troye as a “courageous” Pence aide who just felt she had to speak out against President Trump.
While Troye did work as a homeland security advisor for Pence, she actually got back into the government under Obama.
After working for the DOD during the Bush era, she stayed on and became an DNI adviser extending into the Obama era, exited to work for the Chamber of Commerce, then did the usual Booz Allen Hamilton stint, before diving into the DIA in 2013.
By 2015, she was a senior advisor to the director of intelligence at the DOE. From Nov 2016, she had a major job at DHS, and only in 2018, did she become a Pence adviser.
Troye probably has Republican connections, but she also seemed to be very comfortable networking and working during the Obama era. And the media is avoiding that subject because they want to spin her a Trump, or at least Pence, loyalist who decided to speak out because her conscience was bothering her. The bio though is that of an industry insider. Which isn’t particularly surprising. The swamp is big and vast. And it is D.C.’s biggest employer. Directly and indirectly.
What’s Troye doing these days?
Well before this she became the National Insurance Crime Bureau’s Vice President of Strategy, Policy, & Plans under a guy whom President Trump allegedly wanted fired.
