"The Department of Energy received significant feedback from our workforce throughout the department, including the National Labs, following the release of the transition team's questions. Some of the questions asked left many in our workforce unsettled," said Eben Burnham-Snyder, a department spokesman. "Our career workforce, including our contractors and employees at our labs, comprise the backbone of DOE (Department of Energy) and the important work our department does to benefit the American people. We are going to respect the professional and scientific integrity and independence of our employees at our labs and across our department.

"We will be forthcoming with all publically-available information with the transition team. We will not be providing any individual names to the transition team." Burnham-Snyder's email had the last sentence in boldface for emphasis.

That's the response members of Congress, who were outraged by Trump's request, wanted.




in unrelated, but equally disturbing news, the Dakota Pipeline has leaked an estimated 176,000 gallons of oil over 6 miles, spilling into a tributary of the Little Missouri..
