Donald Trump's erstwhile campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, who is working on his transition team, told reporters Saturday that the announcement of the president-elect's pick for chief of staff is "imminent." She acknowledged that Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus has "expressed interest" in the position and is under consideration, but reiterated that "it's Mr. Trump's decision ultimately."

How Trump will choose to staff his administration is the subject of much debate, as he ran his campaign as an indictment of the Washington establishment but, with 4,100 jobs to fill, has stacked his transition team with Washington insiders.
