These Are The Top Salaries for White House Employees
Counsel to the President: $183,000
Pasquale “Pat” Cipollone, or as the president refers to him, “Mr. Attorney,” advises Trump on all legal matters for a White House salary of $183,000 per year. Although, with an impeachment inquiry looming and no shortage of presidential legal scandals to come, we wouldn’t be surprised if Mr. Attorney received a fat raise. Pat assumed office in December 2018, following Emmet Flood and Don McGahn. This $183,000 White House salary is only a fraction of Pat’s income. His financial disclosure for 2017 reported an income of $6.7 million.
