The Wall Street Journal reports:
President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team is considering legal action if the Trump administration doesn’t formalize Mr. Biden’s win and give him access to crucial government resources.
The General Services Administration, a little-known government agency, is tasked with “ascertaining” the results of the presidential election, a technical designation that would trigger the flow of government resources to the president-elect’s team.
The GSA has so far declined to take that typically routine step as President Trump continues to dispute the results of the election and refuses to concede. “There are no updates at this time and GSA’s position remains the same,” a GSA spokeswoman said on Monday, confirming that the agency hadn’t yet identified a winner of the election.
GSA’s Emily Murphy is single-handedly undermining a smooth transfer of power to what we know will be the Biden administration. In so doing, she’s endangering the nation’s security just to curry favor with the demagogue who hired her. History won’t forget. https://t.co/Av4XrGdSNP
