Donald Trump’s transition team wants the Energy Department to provide the names of any employees who have worked on President Barack Obama’s climate initiatives — a request that has current and former staffers fearing an oncoming “witch hunt.”

POLITICO obtained the document Friday, after Trump’s advisers sent it to the department earlier in the week.
