3. That shouldn't need to be said.

In fact, it should already have been done government-wide. "All MF45 appointees submit your resignation at 12:02 pm on inauguration day or you're fired" is what should have been said.

5. Because it's exactly what his predecessor did to Democratic appointees

Including Preet Bharara and Sally Yates.

We owe them no favors, no time to consider their merit, none of that. If they were brought on during the Trump administration, they are a potential poison in the DOJ. We have enough evil to thwart. Let's be sure that the attorneys entrusted to enforce the laws are not being subverted by a lurking fascist.

13. Great idea - if only the Biden personnel people had thought of that

Except they did already think of that and have done it. Trump political appointees have pretty much been let go unless there is a good reason for them to be kept on.

Because of the delay in the transition, it couldn't all be done on Inauguration Day because we needed a functioning government. But virtually all of Trump's political appointees are now gone.

The problem is not the political appointees. Its the career appointees who either came in under Trump (whether as career staff or as political appointees whose status converted to career through the burrowing in process) and are sympathetic to his regime. Not only is it sometimes difficult to identify who those people are, it's not possible to summarily fire them.
