Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it's first reported.

Donald Trump asks Jared Kushner to join Paul Manafort and Corey Lewandowski in putting together a transition team for his entering the White House if he wins the election.

The transition team leadership is not formally announced yet, but already the team has people with friends in high places in Russia and Ukraine (Manafort), as well as in Israel (Kushner).

Three days later, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is announced as the head of the transition team. (He is later replaced by Mike Pence in November.)

*will need to update with information about Lewandowski*
