— GAO treads carefully through Trump transition – Tom Temin (DIERSEN: What did you do 1980-1997? I worked for GAO, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $94,610-$122,991.)
https://federalnewsradio.com/tom-temin-commentary/2017/10/gao-treads-carefully-through-trump-transition/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In its famously even-handed tones, the Government Accountability Office provides a detailed look at how then-President-elect Trump approached transition. Three Democrats requested the study. People will take from it according to their political aims. But it’s worth reading just to get an unbiased view of the facts, nearly a year since a contentious election. A strong, statutory framework exists for transitions. It was strengthened by the Presidential Transitions Improvement act of 2015.  Against this backdrop, GAO looked carefully at the most recent transition.)
