It’s about their own sense of duty and for the ones that have left?
Maybe a sense of getting even….
Donald Trump isn’t gonna be President in two months…
So despite punitive orders not to deal with the Biden transition effort?
Several have made contact….
This piece in CNN politics will probably result in more …..
(Trump enforcers may go looking for those not ‘loyal’ to Trump’s efforts to delay Biden’s admin from moving in….)
But the American government should NOT e held captive….
One would also think that lower level civil servants have also been ‘talking’ and might even be providing some insights that Trump people do NOT want exposed ….
A handful of current Trump administration officials, as well as some political appointees who left in recent months, have quietly started to reach out to members of President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team, according to people briefed on the matter.
CNN: “The Trump team has prepared legally required transition memos describing policy challenges, but there are no discussions about actions they could take or pause. Instead, the White House is barreling ahead. A second official tells CNN their goal is to set so many fires that it will be hard for the Biden administration to put them all out.”
“It’s a strategy that radically breaks with past practice, could raise national security risks and will surely compound challenges for the Biden team — but it could also backfire. Analysts and people close to the Biden transition argue the Trump team may act so aggressively that reversing some of its steps will earn Biden easy goodwill points and negotiating power with adversaries.”
