GovExec Daily: The OPM-GSA Merger and the Threat to the Civil Service

POGO's Nick Schwellenbach joined the podcast to discuss a recent investigation that found that the Trump administration "could not lawfully" go forward with the merger.

Since early 2019, the Trump administration has been trying to fold the Office of Personnel Management into the General Services Administration. But, according to an investigation by the Project on Government Oversight, the head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel, told senior administration lawyers that it would be illegal to carry out the merger.

Nick Schwellenbach is one of the authors of the POGO investigation and he joined the podcast to discuss what happened.
