Federal Worker's Revolt: Nothing to worry about

Like the American public, many Federal workers find the Trump administration's executive orders to be unconscionable and are fighting back. They are staying in touch with Obama officials to understand what they can do to push back against the new president's initiatives.  Some have opened anonymous social media accounts to keep the public informed of the new administration's plans. Sally Yates, acting head of DOJ is the most public example when she acted on Jeff Sessions instructions (as part of her confirmation hearing) to "stand up to the president". 

 

If you thought Republicans were incapable of governing before............buckle your seat belts. 

 

#resist. 

 

Asked whether federal workers are dissenting in ways that go beyond previous party changes in the White House, Tom Malinow­ski, who was President Barack Obama’s assistant secretary of state for democracy, human rights and labor, said, sarcastically: “Is it unusual? . . . There’s nothing unusual about the entire national security bureaucracy of the United States feeling like their commander in chief is a threat to U.S. national security. That happens all the time. It’s totally usual. Nothing to worry about.https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/resistance-from-within-federal-workers-push-back-against-tru...
