White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain has been ‘elite’ mouthpiece



If there’s one person who knows about “high-class problems,” it’s Ron Klain. 

The White House chief of staff, 59, has been a fixture among the political elite for nearly four decades — and made out quite well as a result. 

A financial disclosure report released by the White House in March showed Klain had assets valued between $4.4 million and $12.2 million. By comparison, when Klain became Biden’s chief of staff in 2009, disclosure reports showed him owning between $1.4 million and $3.5 million in assets. 

Most notably, Klain received a salary of nearly $2 million last year from Revolution LLC, an investment firm started by AOL co-founder Steve Case where Klain was executive vice president and general counsel. 

Since arriving in Washington, Klain has worked with and for a who’s who of prominent Democrats including Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
