Caleb Burns Comments on Vetting Process for President-Elect Trump’s Cabinet

Politico Pro
November 28, 2016

Caleb P. Burns, partner in Wiley Rein’s Election Law & Government Ethics Practice, was quoted in a November 22 Politico Pro article regarding the vetting process currently being conducted by President-elect Trump’s transition team for potential appointees. In contrast with the practices of previous incoming administrations, the team has engaged in a less formal process which it has initiated relatively late in the transition cycle. 

“Campaigns and transition organizations in the past have gotten down to the business of governing more quickly,” said Mr. Burns. “It does not mean they cannot make up for lost time, now that they are singularly focused on it.”
