Rachel Maddow on MSNBC presents clear examples of Trump loading lobbyists into federal positions as clear examples of Regulatory Capture (See also Corporate Capture and Policy Capture) Below is a short video of her program vividly detailing this process from her show.

Wikipedia

"Regulatory capture is a form of government failure which occurs when a regulatory agency, created to act in the public interest, instead advances the commercial or political concerns of special interest groups that dominate the industry or sector it is charged with regulating.[1] When regulatory capture occurs, the interests of firms or political groups are prioritized over the interests of the public, leading to a net loss for society. Government agencies suffering regulatory capture are called "captured agencies"

The show has the title: Trump has chosen lobbyists to run EPA, HHS, DOD, and Interior
