Trump’s transition team wants answers, Democrats ‘unsettled’ and ‘concerned’

With but a few weeks until Donald Trump is sworn in as America’s 45th president, it makes sense that his transition team would want the specifics on the various departments and agencies that have answered to Barack Obama for the last eight years.

And Team Obama is none-too happy about that, complaining that they are “unsettled” and “concerned” regarding the Trump people wanting to know the who, what, when, where, and why of the operations and programs are currently underway.

As reported by Joseph Weber of Fox News, the transition team has been asking specifically of the departments of Energy, State and Homeland Security “about their work on hot-button issues like climate change and ‘violent extremism’.”

But what has the Obama folks rattled is their asking for the names of the Obama staffers involved with the same operations and programs the Cabinet-level departments are actively engaged in.

As Fox’s Weber also noted;
Energy spokesman Eben Burnham-Snyder recently said some of the transition team questions left agency staffers “unsettled.”

“We are concerned that these efforts to single out particular department employees involved in efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions may be an attempt to target DOE employees whose scientific views on climate change differ from those of the incoming Trump administration,” wrote Reps. Elijah Cumming, of Maryland, and Frank Pallone, of New Jersey, the top Democrats, respectively, on the House’s Oversight and Energy committees.

Reuters, meanwhile, reported that the team also has asked the State and Homeland Security department for the names of officials working on efforts to counter “violent extremism.”

Reuters reported that some career officials were concerned about what the incoming administration would do regarding those programs.
