Trump dispatching ‘landing teams’ to Obama agencies, as Cabinet vetting heats up
At ConservativeRead by Chris --
A wave of Donald Trump “landing teams” will be storming the beaches of the federal government in the coming days and weeks in preparation for the transition, as the president-elect’s vetting of potential Cabinet picks moves into full swing.
The Republican president-elect was holding another packed day of meetings with potential prospects Thursday at New York City’s Trump Tower, the de facto center of the political universe in the wake of last week’s upset election.
While Trump prepares to announce his selections, the transition team is assembling what aides describe as “landing teams” that will visit and interact with federal agencies during the transition period.
The first “wave” will be assigned to national security matters, dealing with the departments of State, Justice and Defense and the National Security Council.
