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.
