Build Back Better Setback At OSTP

Biden's top science adviser, Eric Lander, resigns amid reports of bullying, Politico

"President Joe Biden's top science adviser, Eric Lander, resigned on Monday evening under an avalanche of backlash over reports of his bullying and mistreatment of subordinates. The resignation came despite initial insistence from the White House that Lander would remain in his post while corrective actions and remediations were applied to assure a better workplace environment at the Office of Science and Technology Policy."

Chairwoman Johnson and Ranking Member Lucas Request Details of White House Investigation of OSTP Director Lander's Misconduct

"Today, Politico published an article outlining allegations of inappropriate behavior by Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) Director Eric Lander. The article references an internal investigation conducted by the White House and disciplinary measures taken in response to the finding that Dr. Lander violated the Executive Office of the President's Safe and Respectful Workplace Policy. In response, Chairwoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) and Ranking Member Frank Lucas (R-OK) sent a letter to President Biden today requesting a copy of the investigation report and a briefing on the steps being taken to ensure the workforce environment at OSTP is safe, respectful, and furthers the Office's critical missions."
