Washington Bureaucrats Are Quietly Working to Undermine Trumps Agenda [View all]

Across the government, career staffers are finding ways to continue old policies, sometimes just by renaming a project.

“The bureaucracy is generally resistant, no matter what the hell you’re trying to do,” Leon Panetta, who guided presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama through transitions, said in an interview. But when a president sets out to be as disruptive as Trump has, Panetta added, getting career staff to implement those policies “is gonna take a hell of a lot longer.”

long read with many example. I found it heartening.
