The US General Services Administration (GSA), a federal agency that provides resources to presidents-elect for a smooth transition, has allowed the release of funds for the Biden-Harris transition. GSA Administrator Emily Murphy, in a letter to Joe Biden, defended her decision to hold the funds for the transition citing “legal challenges” mounted by US President Donald Trump.
This comes after days of mounting efforts by Trump and his loyalists to block Biden-Harris’s transition, be it through lawsuits challenging vote counts or by refraining from certifying ballots at local levels. Emily Murphy faced a lot of criticism for her decision to hold resources for the Biden-Harris transition, which she is now trying to amend by formally allowing the release of funds.
Trump took to Twitter to thank Emily Murphy for her loyalty to the country and said he is recommending the GSA Administrator “to do what needs to be done”. Trump further added that he has also directed his administration to assist Biden and his team. However, Trump said that his legal battles would continue, indicating he still believes election fraud occurred.
