VIA| Donald Trump’s drive to purge his administration, its federal agencies and bureaus from all things Obama continues to roll on.
On March 13th he issued an executive order demanding a “plan to reorganize governmental functions and eliminate unnecessary agencies.” The goal of that plan is to put the federal government on a diet. That diet will inevitably mean that federal agencies reduce costs. The number one cost for most large organizations? Payroll.
One of Trump’s biggest hachet men is Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Once confirmed to his new post by the Senate, Sessions wasted no time getting the purge started by abruptly firing all remaining Obama-appointed prosecutors, 46 in all. Those aren’t the only pink slips AG Sessions is handing out.
On Monday Sessions said ‘adios’ to the National Commission on Forensic Science. What’s that you may be wondering? Bizpac Review describes the events this way:
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions officially ended the partnership Monday between the Department of Justice and a group of independent advisors tasked with recommending uniform forensic science standards nationwide.
Sessions will not renew the National Commission on Forensic Science, a panel of scientists, judges, crime lab managers and lawyers created by former President Barack Obama in 2013, he announced in a statement.
