Free BeaconMeanwhile, holdovers from the Obama administration are working to undermine the Trump administration's agenda through efforts to alter official communications, a number of administration officials confirmed in conversations with the Washington Free Beacon.

Multiple sources expressed concern over what they described as an unprecedented effort by the former administration to subvert President Donald Trump's team. [...] "We have members of the former administration at the highest levels who through their actions after January 20 have demonstrated their refusal to recognize the results of the general election," one senior administration official told the Free Beacon. "They have pursued, organized, and managed a comprehensive subversion of the new administration."

They are accused of rewriting executive orders, conspiring to limit initial hiring during the transition via budgetary manipulation, coordinating press leaks, and quite a bit more, including (by implication) the various coordinated leaks alleging Russian ties.

A lot of these things strike me as not just firing offenses (even for "civil service" positions), but criminal offenses, up to and including treason. When you work for the government, you are -- or should be, anyway -- putting your own opinions in second place to what the elected officials want. Actively sabotaging those officials is a serious matter.
