Hillary Clinton's White House transition team is being headed by a former Obama adviser and a longtime Clinton insider.

The team will be led by John Podesta, who served as chief of staff to President Bill Clinton and special adviser to President Obama.

Podesta, who acts now as chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, will be joined in his efforts by Minyon Moore, whom the New York Times describes as a "longtime Clinton insider."

Podesta will act as president of the transition team, and Moore will serve as secretary, according to the Associated press.

Moore has already, "dispatched campaign policy aides Ed Meier, Ann O'Leary and Sara Latham, Podesta's chief of staff, to the White House meetings," the report noted.

On the opposite side of the aisle, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been tapped to lead GOP nominee Donald Trump's White House transition team.

News that Podesta is leading the transition team came amid reports Wednesday that Clinton officially begun planning for her White House.

Clinton's team has already launched a nonprofit, the Clinton-Kaine Transition Fund, signaling the first of several moves in her taking over the White House, according to paperwork filed in the District of Columbus.

The Obama administration promised this week that it would help ensure a smooth transition regardless of who wins in November.

The president "made clear [that] one of his top goals for this year was to ensure a smooth transition from the Obama administration to the next president," White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters. "And President Obama has talked before about how this administration benefited significantly from the effective planning of President George W. Bush's White House."

"And even though that transition took place across party lines, the effective coordination is something that benefited the incoming president, and the American people more generally, and the president aspires to meet, if not exceed, that very high standard that was set by the Bush White House," he added.

White House chief of staff Denis McDonough said last week that both candidates can now receive intelligence briefings from federal authorities. Per the norm, the White House also offered to provide "workspace for transition planning."

"Much of Clinton's transition team's effort will be focused on creating lists of potential administration appointees and developing a roadmap for her policy agenda," the AP reported. "Bipartisan legislation signed in 2010 requires the government to provide office space, computers and technological support for both candidates."

Earnest reiterated this week that the Obama administration would make sure that the transition goes without a hitch.

The current administration is "committed to working both effectively with the Democratic and Republican nominee to ensure that once the American people have made a decision about who should lead our country, that that transition can take place smoothly," he said, dismissing concerns the Obama White House would try somehow to block the transition to a possible Trump presidency.
