Biden’s chief of staff, Ron Klain, and at least 60 White House staffers have ties to progressive groups that do not disclose their funding. President Biden’s advisor was on the board of the Center for American Progress Action Fund. These ties raise questions regarding the funding they receive.
The Center for American Progress, for instance, was founded in 2003 by John Podesta, Bill Clinton’s chief of staff and advisor to Barack Obama. According to reports, accessed by Daily Mail, the Center for American Progress is one of several political groups and organizations that do not disclose how they are funded.

The failure to disclose where the funds come from has raised concerns about who is behind their significant power and influence. Similarly, Ronald Klain was on the board of the Center for American Progress Action Fund — the advocacy arm of the Center for American Progress — from 2011 to 2013.
Klain was Biden’s chief of staff when he was vice president, and previously served as Vice President Al Gore’s chief of staff. He was also appointed by former President Obama as White House Ebola Coordinator. This after cases of the disease virus were reported in the United States and he served in the position from 2014 to 2015.
