The administration sent a report outlining its transition activities to two congressional committees on Wednesday night, announcing it has created a transition planning group — the White House Transition Coordinating Council, which will advise executive departments and agencies on preparation for a potential transition — and detailing other aspects of a handoff between administrations.
The administration has also started other transition activities, it announced on Wednesday: The General Services Administration is planning to organize meetings with the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Department of Justice and the FBI. Those meetings are meant to ensure that transition team members get proper clearances so they can access classified information.
Federal law requires that an incumbent administration begin these preparations six months before the election. You know it’s killing them to comply.
