    As the Trump presidency gains momentum, the president-elect's team continues to fill out its list of potential cabinet picks with new names, NBC News reported.

    Vice President-elect Mike Pence will spearhead the transition, taking over for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who will be one of several vice-chairs, the Trump campaign announced Friday.

    Pence, as well as Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and campaign chief Steve Bannon will be leading the charge to whittle down names for cabinet positions. Along with them, the executive committee will include three of his children, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump, PayPal founder Peter Thiel, and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

    But despite Donald Trump's campaign pledge to "drain the swamp" in Washington and his outsider campaign, many of the prospects are clear Washington insiders.
