Most of Trump admin original cabinet is gone. Those who remain tend to share two traits: complicity in plot and nepotism ties.

* Trump family: Donald, Ivanka, Jared
* Relatives of the complicit: Chao (McConnell), DeVos (Prince)
* Complicit in corrupt campaign: Mnuchin, Pence
The makeup and shakeups of the Trump admin are typical of autocracies. Admin is packed with lackeys bound by family ties and/or shared guilt. Makes them easier to control.

Players are moved frequently to create a power vacuum which the main players -- the family -- fills.
Over time, the autocrat becomes more insular, and kin ties dominate. That's happening now.

Where Trump differs from other autocrats is in his complete deference to foreigners. He can't be a fascist because he doesn't care about the state. The state is just something to sell.
What you will see is a continuation of their original plan: strip the US down and sell it for parts. The Trump/Kushner family and foreign backers are main beneficiaries.

The GOP has their own plan for a one-party state, using Trump as a vehicle to pack courts, rewrite laws.
