Office of General Services Authorizes Biden’s Transition Team to Meet with U.S. Government Officials

The Office of General Services has informed President-elect Joe Biden that the Trump administration is ready to begin the formal transition process. This is stated in a letter from the head of the Office, Emily Murphy, which was at the disposal of CNN..

The letter was the first step taken by the White House administration, more than two weeks after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the election..

Murphy said she was not pressured by the White House to delay the formal transfer of power..

“Know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and the available facts,” – wrote Murphy. “I have never been directly or indirectly pressured by any executive officer, including those who work in the White House or in the Office of General Services.”.

President Trump on Twitter thanks Emily Murphy for her work.

“I want to thank Emily Murphy of GSA for her continued dedication and loyalty to our country. She was harassed, threatened and abused – and I don’t want this to happen to her, her family, or the GSA staff. Our work continues with SURE, we will continue the fight, and I believe that we will win! However, in the best interest of our country, I recommend that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with the original protocols, and I advised my team to do the same. “.

The move will formally begin the transfer of power by allowing current government officials to coordinate with Biden’s team, as well as providing millions of dollars to fund the transfer of power..

Until recently, Murphy refused to start the process, despite Biden’s clear victory, which prevented the president-elect’s team from communicating with federal agencies. Murphy, appointed by President Trump, has come under scrutiny and political pressure from Democrats and, in recent days, Republicans, calling for a smooth transition of power..

Republican Senator Rob Portman said Monday that “there is currently no evidence of any widespread fraud or irregularities that could affect outcomes in any state,” and called for a transition to begin. “.
