With reports that the White House has lists of "disloyal" people in government, Katherine McIntire Peters and Eric Katz joined GovExec Daily to discuss what that will mean for civil servants.
After reports surfaced that the White House and allies were making lists of "disloyal" employees, White House spokesman Hogan Gidley confirmed Monday that the administration is looking to find "people [in government who are] taking action against this president and when we find them we will take appropriate action." Gidley did not specify if this would only be political appointees or career federal employees.
The effects could be far-reaching in government. GovExec Daily spoke with Katherine McIntire Peters and Eric Katz to examine the consequences of such a purge for feds and citizens alike.
