GSA designates Joe Biden "apparent winner," enabling official transition

"And so more than two weeks after the major networks declared Joe Biden, the winner of the presidential election, Emily Murphy finally did what she should have done back on November 7th when Biden's victory became apparent. Now. Emily Murphy is a heretofore unknown federal government employee who is the head of the General Services Administration. It is her job to sign off on Biden's win, which allows the presidential transition to officially begin. It permits current Trump Administration agency officials to coordinate with the incoming Biden team and provides millions of dollars in government funding for the transition. If you've listened to the Ron Owens report in recent weeks, you know I was not in Emily Murphy side when it came there doing her one big job. It doesn't seem that difficult aspect. She said she needed only to ascertain that Biden is the apparent winner of the election. And yet somehow she delayed it up until yesterday, forcing hundreds of people joining the new Biden administration to work without government paid assistance. Hmm. That sounds very trump here. I mean, seriously. Despite Biden's clear victory, she stalled in her letter, finally initiating the formal transition process. Murphy said she had not been pressured by the White House to delay the transition and did not make a decision out of fear or favoritism. She wrote, And I quote, please. No, I came to my decision independently based on the law and available fax. Yeah, of course she did. She's neutrals sort of. I mean, she was appointed by President Trump and unsuccessfully tried to be on his transition team in 2016. And every day she delayed making the obvious choice made it more difficult for Joe Biden to put his people in place and work towards a smooth transition to the new administration. In effect, she allowed the delay to possibly be used by enemies of the United States like Russia, who thrive on making countries chaotic. Bottom line. I don't believe her, but at least now her 15 minutes are up. As for Trump Well, he tweeted now that he's not conceding and plans to move full speed ahead with his various legal cases challenging what he calls the most corrupt election in American political history. So we continue to witness the torture. It's vindictive, classless strategy of the president, making his successor's job more difficult from day one. It's almost criminal. Will Rogers sure never met Donald Trump. I admit I'm still enjoying the pain look of Trump. It makes you wonder. Could he actually believe that he won, Huh? Come on, man. No, but the way he's not carrying himself might make future government officials and everyday bosses think twice before surrounding themselves with sick of fence. Is there any doubt that in speaking with foreign leaders who called him out of obligation, he did all he could to poison the water for Biden, his scorched earth way of handling defeat. Go down in history as the classic example of hubris and Pettiness. I'll be watching with great interest how true Republican senators in Congress members deal with him. Now they no longer will have the power to directly make their lives miserable. A few weeks ago, I was pretty convinced that Trump would keep the GOP in this corner for the next four years by offering daily critiques of anything Biden does. I hope the media would wake up and see how they've been consistently manipulated by Trump and punish him by not reporting every word he speaks. Now, though, you know last week or so I'm watching some of the Republican senators who repeated his Bs open up a bit. And veteran Watergate reporter called. Bernstein has now released a list of 21 Republican senators who in private, have repeatedly expressed extreme contempt for Trump and his fitness for office. Maybe by 2024. His own party might reject his bed for a rematch. Meanwhile, is the first round of Biden administration nominations a release. It's clear that by this choosing people who are indisputably X Spurs in their fields over bigger names and democratic politics. There'll be very little on the job training needed for senior members of Biden's White House, as CNN reported. The simple act of hiring people qualify for their jobs is in itself a rejection of the Trump model, which installed donors, right wing ideologues and inexperienced allies into positions of power in some instances, The express purpose of undermining the institutions they were meant to lead, so we'll find ourselves with a very competent yet a times boring new president and a faceless cabinet. After all we've been through these last four years. Doesn't that sound

The president has failed in his attempt.

Trump's defeat became official when the woman who runs the general services administration faced with a boss. Who will not concede just tonight grudgingly agreed to officially begin the transition to the new administration in a letter to biden that avoids calling him. President elect emily murphy signed off on his transition and noted she was under no political pressure. Writing quote please know that came to my decision independently based on the lawn available facts. I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any executive branch official including those who work at the white house or gsa with regard to the substance. Our timing of my decision. I did not receive any direction to delay my determination. Her decision came just hours after election. Officials in michigan certify. Joe biden's victory. Trump posted his reaction to the news about the transition with a message. That did not sound like a concession quote. I wanna thank emily murphy at gsa for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our country our case strongly continues and we will keep up the good fight and i believe we will prevail nevertheless in the best interests of our country. I am recommending that. Emily and her team do what needs to be done and have told my team to do the same tonight. The new york times reports at this way quote mr trump had been resisting any move toward a transition but in conversations in recent days that intensified monday morning top aides including mark meadows the white house.

We've been reporting the past few hours that the General Service Administration decided today to allow the Biden transition process to formally begin. Tom Temin, host and managing editor of the Federal Drive on Federal News Network, joining our own Dimitri sodas earlier to talk about this decision. This is very much a nuts and bolts decision, and I want to say that the first the outset, Dimitri is that GSC is probably the least political of all of the types of political appointees and an administration makes. And so Emily Murphy was acting. I think not so much out of a political motive is the fact that it looks like the votes are really in and And counted and certified and all these different places, Pennsylvania, Michigan and so on. So that's why I think she could go ahead and do this. Now. What happens now is the main differences.

People can now visit directly with federal agencies go into the offices, make reports get rundowns get downloads from the people in place there now. And get the information they need to hit the ground Running come January. 20th. It is tough to estimate, but this roughly three week delay doesn't mean that much in terms of national Security and co vid now that they finally can get in there. I've been trying to figure that out, having watched this kind of thing for 30 years. I think the answer is no. I think that's in the realm of politics. And trying to put all sorts of pressure on Emily Murphy. I just think to be fair to Emily Murphy. She's not a crazy, partisan type of person. She's been in and out of government. She's worked on the hill. She's knows this process very well. I honestly think she was doing what she could give him the legal situation and not what some in the press hope for. So this I don't think it'll affect this has affected national security. But now the president elect can get the briefings from directly from the national security people in place now.

"Now if your political junkie you're just interested in the 2020 election, you know she is and if not, Don't worry. She's going to disappear from the news soon and her name will be relegated to a trivia game. Right now. She is at the center of the presidential transition Controversy. Emily Murphy is the administrator of the General Services Administration, and part of her job is to ascertain the apparent winner of the presidential election. Which launches the official transition process. In this case, it comes with pressure from both sides and even death threats from what's been written and said she's perfectly suited for this important job. She was a congressional aide and worked away up the GSC ranks to reach your current position. Almost everything said about her seems laudatory. Her colleagues and friends use words like ethical Moral and scrupulous that said she was appointed by President Trump and even volunteered to be part of his transition team in 2016. So why is he stalling? Well, apparently her concern involves the famous Florida debacle in 2000 when the Supreme Court ultimately ruled George W. Bush was the winner. To be blunt. Any comparison is ludicrous. In that case, the legitimacy of 5400 Florida votes will determine the next president. While today there's no way the apparent result would change even if Trump went all of his legal challenges, and so far he has lost. Every one of them. So all Emily Murphy has to sign is the ascertainment. And yet she hasn't why the G s a says it doesn't pick who wins the election. But instead and I quote ascertained the apparent successful candidate once the winner is clear, based on the process laid out in the Constitution. May repeat the key word in that statement. A parent is everyone listening to this report, Who doesn't believe that a minimum that Biden got more popular votes and more electoral college votes than Trump? Somebody asked me what I would do it Emily Murphy's position right now having to choose between refusing to ascertain and alienating all the Democrats or siding with Trump and having to deal with some of the people who have sent her death threats. I said it was a slam dunk. I'd ascertain immediately and I'd sign it now before the current president does even more damage to the country. On my Facebook page. I asked KGO listeners. What would you do if you were Emily Murphy? Would you release the transition money to the incoming Biden team? Absolutely, says Linda, adding, she works for the American people, not the president. She should do her job and not be swayed by the pressures of one person or party. Leslie Ass isn't a law that she signed off. She'll be out of a job. Either way, she signs up now. Well, maybe she'll get a small amount of respect from others. But if she continues this stonewalling Till over user 15 minutes of fame in the worst way, if she thinks that Trump will rehire or even care about her, I got a bridge to sell her glances. Come on, Ron. No one has been certified as President elect Neither Trump nor Biden. Senator Harris receives intelligence briefings because she's a member of Congress. But Joe Biden is just a private citizen and has no business receiving the intelligence reports. Colleen sees it this way. None of us were in her shoes. And we know nothing about what pressure she's under. But what does it matter? Why does one person have this power? Who did she answer to? David says simply. History will not be nice to this woman. He says. I'd like to think that I follow the law and not try and inject my own interpretation into. It clearly says that she must sign the authorization to accommodate the apparent winner. Beverly says withholding the information from the incoming president Steam is a federal offenses. There's gotta be something put in place for future generations to disallow this to ever happen again. Some chicken balance and overseer that can ensure a smooth transition from Ron On, says she's already looking for another job. Now is the time to release the funds quit and do a serious job search employers like people with integrity. They don't like people who come off his loser jerks. And finally, Susan sums it up by saying something is wrong with the transition system. It depends on the whim of one.

Current and former Trump officials quietly reach out to Biden team

"To biden. Transition officials are telling. Nbc news that a few current and former trump administration officials have reached out privately to the biden transition tame now. This outreach was described as not a big deal. Those are the words used not a big deal by biden transition sources and they stress. That this out reese Is not in any way. A replacement for the national security and covert briefings and other legitimate transition processes that the trump administration is refusing to provide to the biden harris transition team. The biden harris transition is not yet officially underway. Because emily murphy is lying. Emily murphy has been lying every day for eleven days in a row. Emily murphy is the donald trump appointee. Who is now the administrator of general of general services administration after serving and republican staff positions in washington for several years. Emily murphy is lying with her silence because of his emily. Murphy's sworn duty under law under a law called the presidential transition act of nineteen sixty three to sign her name to the document that officially begins the transition process to the biden harris administration. The law orders the gsa administrator to sign that document as soon as there is what the law calls an apparent successful candidate in the presidential election. The law specifies that for example every news organization calling the presidential election for joe biden is a more than adequate identification of an apparent winner to trigger the official beginning of the transition and for eleven days. Now emily murphy's refusal to sign the document. The transition means that she is silently lying to this country and the world. Emily murphy is telling the lie that there is no apparent in the presidential election on monday. Joe biden said that what emily murphy is doing means. More people may die. Those were his words. More people may die today in a meeting with healthcare workers. President elect joe biden. Said this one of the problems that we're having now is the failure of the administration to recognize. The law says that the general services administration has a person who recognizes who the winner is and then they have to have access to all the data and information that the government possesses to be prepared. And it doesn't require there to be an absolute winner and says the apparent winner apparent winner and We've been unable to get access to the kinds of things we need to know and There's a whole lot of things that are just we just don't have available to us unless it's made available soon. We're going to be behind by weeks months being able to put together the whole initiative relating to the biggest traumas we have with to Drug companies coming along and finding ninety five percent effectiveness efficiency and the vaccines which is enormous.

"One of the big stories we've been following all week is the fact that President Trump has refused to concede and still has numerous lawsuits hoping to overturn the outcome of the election. Meanwhile, the White House has ordered different agencies not to cooperate with the Biden transition team until the General Services Administration confirms the election. This office needs to sign paperwork that would release funds to the transition team and allow them to begin getting briefings from government offices. There are some that say this delay could have national security implications. Many are beginning to urge the president to admit that he lost the election for more on how the GSC is holding up. The transition will speak to Lisa Ryan, National reporter, The Washington Post. So this has been a turbulent transition bus bar, and we really don't know if things are going to get more tense or less tense. But right now, as you said the G s a, which is this federal agency that actually handles real estate? It's in charge of all the federal buildings. Administrator of that agency Eyes. A woman named Emily Murphy, who is a Trump appointee, and her role is to basically write a letter. Once the president elect in any administration has been declared, and that letter essentially kind of freeze up. A whole bunch of resource is for an incoming president. So in this case of Biden fighting team gets about $6.5 million in taxpayer money to hire people for the transition team, you know, get computers and Holbrook Ideas, equipment stuff like that. But kind of one of most important things is that the letter that she is supposed to write enables the Biden Harris teams to send their people into federal agencies. In this case, a lot of it would be remotely but have conversations with both Trump appointees and just permanent government. Civil servants who are there about what's happening in their agencies. What they need toe focus on look forward to personnel issues. Technology issues, Probably Underway were risks. They're going on their agencies. And you know, these agencies have actually spent months which is part of the law devising, you know, briefing booklets for the any incoming team. That sort of says okay. This is what the Department of Veterans Affairs is up to. You know, these are the programs. This is what's going on. And right now, none of that is happening. Yeah. I mean, it's very interesting. You hear Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a news conference whether he said there will be a smooth transition. To a second Trump administration. So everybody is really holding out on this. Ah, question about the G s A. Whose signals to them to write this letter. I mean, you know, they have to certify the election. I guess that doesn't have to happen, I guess until December, 1st Do they wait for that? And then she would write this letter. Or can this be done before that? How does that part of it work right. That's such an important question, because these are questions that are really not known yet. Or maybe they're known by the Trump team. So Emily Murphy, you know how she has lawyers who are advising her and in truth, her not releasing the transition resource is is in keeping with the president's stance. And, as you said his his decision to refuse to acknowledge Joe Biden as the winner of the election. So what? She's doing is not released. Surprising right? But is sort of funny that this unknown like federal bureaucrats is sort of able to come up the works. But so what? The people of G s a have told us is that, um they're they're not really sure when she will decide to do that, because right now They believe there's no winner of the presidential race. Now. I think they're just trying to kind of Take cover. You know here because we don't know when the president's legal options will be exhausted. We know that the Electoral College meets December 14th, which is, you know a long way away from now, in terms of the 74 days that they have, you know, for a transition before Inauguration day, and we do know that states are beginning. You go through a process of certifying the election, right? So I think Pennsylvania may certify this week. We know that Georgia has a recount, so that's not gonna happen. But you know, North Carolina will begin to certify. You know some of the other battleground states. Wisconsin, You know, Michigan And so the states were you know, Trump is contesting the election are really dwindling. So it's really not clear whether the act of certification is going to the trigger. Or, you know, the recount in Georgia could also take a few weeks, so I just I think the Trump folks they do, you know, have a lot of leeway legally because the law it's called the Presidential Transition Act of 1963. It's a little bit vague on what constitutes a This is very bureaucratic button ascertainment over the winner of the election during your crack, But so there's a lot of leeway here. Joe Biden, for his part, has already spoken about this. He said that the transition Is underway and kind of what's happening is I like the way you mentioned in the article. A Shadow transition is beginning to take shape. So Joe Biden and his team are content, you know? He is the former vice president. He's been in those offices. He knows what it's like. So they're contacting a bunch of people that they've known who might have left recently from the administration, and they're really just trying to lay the ground the ground work for making the transition, regardless if the White House is helping out That's right. And what we saw today also was that the transition team actually released. It's it's called an agency review team. These are the teams that are going to go you know, into federal agencies and talk with officials there, but they list they released a list of 500 names. We did a little story about this and they've got this up on their website. Um And these are the experts. And as you said, these are people who have served in government. Many of them served in the Obama administration, which is, as we know it's on Lee four years ago, right, So Trump was really hadn't been in in on that long. And you're right. You know, there are lots of conversations happening. It's not like Democrats have been out of power for eight or even 12 years. They've been hanging around Washington and, you know, kind of opining on the Trump. Administration on cable news, You know, and so they're around. And so I think that you know this sort of shadow transition, um, is really happening. And so right now, we just, you know, Look, this is only day. What is it day three day forth every time, but you stay four Since Biden was, you know was was declared the winner. Um But you know if this goes on for too long, I think you know what people are worried about is national security implications, because when you have an uncertain and unstable transition, this is when you know when bad actors can really try to exploit this and that that's not a good thing. Yeah, One of the notes you mentioned here is that in 2000? It took until December 12 for the Bush administration to begin that transition process and a lot of people said You know that there was a critical vulnerability to national security..

US presidential election: A turbulent transfer of power

"Peaceful. Transfer of power is a cornerstone of american democracy. Right now president. Trump is not only refusing to concede this election. He's also denying the incoming biden administration access to key documents funding information. They need to ensure a safe and smooth transition now. The formal transition process is actually a pretty new thing. Congress passed the presidential transition act just over fifty years ago. Em things proceeded from there with relatively little drama or problems until two thousand versus the mission of george. Bush is not up for me to accept or reject the legal process. You know. let's just watch this happen. It'll be over soon. We'll be ready for transition. It wasn't until weeks after that. Bill clinton cabinet meeting december twelve thirty five days after the election that george w bush was officially declared the winner that gave then president elect bush just over a month to plan for and staff his administration course nine months later the september eleventh terrorist attacks happened catching the nation and a relatively new president off guard when the nine eleven commission report came out in two thousand four. It pointed to this truncated transition as a weakness and recommended a more formalized process katherine dunn tempests at senior fellow at the university of virginia's miller center the senior research director at the white house transition project so laws were passed in the two thousands or spin sort of three sets of laws that have been passed to kinda they keep refining it and keep refining it but what they did primarily is that they enable the winning candidates to receive funding to start their transitions after they were formerly so that meant that once biden was the democratic nominee. He was eight. He was provided with all space some funding for salaries and the ability to start planning ahead. Talked to us a little bit. About how worried you are or how worried we should be as americans about this as you pointed out the attacks on nine eleven happened not that long after president bush took office. If something happens january or february of this coming year would the biden administration be potentially a unable to respond because they just simply didn't have the staffing and they didn't have the time to ramp up and be ready. Let me back up. Just a bit to point out that There are basically two important phases of the transition. The i i pointed out was after the nominee has been formally nominated by the party and they received some resources the next big transfer resources comes after the head of the gsa has ascertained the next president united states and they use that verbiage. Esser that verb. I'm not really sure why but And that's the point at which the president the incoming president can start to have access to classified material that can start to be part of the president's daily brief with Tells them all the national security issues. It enables the biden transition team to have access to all of these individuals civil servants and political appointees at the various agencies so that they can interview them. So what's happening now. Is they are preventing the biden from moving to the next phase. And what i would argue is the most important phase at the transition. It's critically important that the biden staff members be able to go to the department of justice francis and to be able to interview. Fbi director the head of the criminal division the head of the national security division to try to get a sense since of. What's the lay of the land where the priorities. What are the crises. That might be boiling over by the time we get here. And that's what they're being denied so. I think there should be a lot of concern about this. The the inability to advance to the next stage of the transition. It's not to say that it's going to necessarily result in some sort of crises that but we want a country that's prepared so it strikes me as were basically just sort of harming ourselves for no apparent reason and were inhibiting our ability to be in the best possible situation. We can be on january twentieth. And there's no reason for that. We have the resources we have the capacity. So why so. Let's talk about the. Why and and the who so. Emily murphy is a name that most of us probably weren't familiar with until now she is a person who is at the head of the. Gsa can you talk a little bit about how her role what her role is. And how much leeway. She has to continue to refuse to release these funds or to allow the biden team to start integrating with the outgoing trump administration. So emily murphy is the administrator of the gsa. It's a political appointment in the gsa. It's office is largely responsible for all the government real estate so they helped provide office space and oversee office space You know in in most situations would never even hear of the essay in this particular case because the legislation housed it in the gsa. She has the capacity to release the funding and the resources to the party. Nominees and then eventually to the president-elect by law she is the one that has to ascertain the election so there will be no funding going out until she does it. So what's tying our hands. I mean she is a by president trump. She must be a republican. Who has some loyalty to this administration and is unwilling to buck the advice. She's getting probably for mark meadows. Probably the chief-of-staff sues weighing on her.

Trump is stonewalling Biden's transition. Here's why it matters

"Amy Walter from the takeaway were well underway and the ability for Theo administration in any way by failure recognizes this our wind. Does not change the dynamic at all. What radio peaceful transfer of power is a cornerstone of American democracy. Right now. President Trump is not only refusing to concede this election. He's also denying the incoming Biden administration access to keep documents funding an information they need to ensure a safe and smooth transition. Now the formal transition process is actually a pretty new thing. Congress passed the Presidential transition act just over 50 years ago. Him. Things proceeded from there with relatively little drama or problems until 2000 President George Florida's certification of George Bush is the winner. It's not up for me to accept or reject. There's a legal process here, you know, let's just watch this happen. It'll be over soon and we'll be ready for the transition. It wasn't until weeks after that. Bill Clinton Cabinet meeting December 12 35 days after the election that George W. Bush was officially declared the winner. That gave then President elect Bush just over a month to plan for and staff his administration. Course. Nine months later, the September 11th terrorist attacks happened catching the nation and relatively new president off guard. When the 9 11 Commission report came out in 2004, it pointed to this truncated transition. Is a weakness and recommended a more formalized process. Catherine Don Tempus is it senior fellow at the University of Virginia's Miller Center. She's also the senior research director at the White House Transition Project. So laws were passed in the 2000. There's been sort of three sets of laws that have been passed to kind of they keep refining it and keep refining it. But what they did primarily is that they enabled the winning candidates to receive funding to start their transitions after they were formally nominated. So that meant that once Biden was the Democratic nominee, he was he was provided with office space. Some funding for salaries. And the ability to start planning ahead. Talk to us a little bit about how worried you are or how worried we should be as Americans about this, As you pointed out, the attacks on 9 11 happened. No, not that long after President Bush took office. If something happens January or February of this coming year, would the Biden Administration be potentially unable to respond because they just simply didn't have the staffing and they didn't have the time to ramp up and be ready. We'll let me back up just a bit to point out that there are basically two important phases of the transition. The first I pointed out was after the the nominee. Has been formally nominated by the party and they receive some resource is the next big transfer resource is comes after the head of the G s A has ascertained the next President, United States and they use that Burbage ascertain that bird. I'm not really sure why, but And that's the point at which The president, the incoming president can start to have access to classified material. They can start to be part of the president's daily brief with which is the tells them all of the national security issues. It enables the Biden transition team to have access to all of these individuals, civil servants and political appointees at the various agencies so that they can interview them. So what's happening now is they are preventing the Biden from moving to the next phase, and what I would argue is the most important phase of the transition. It's critically important that the Biden staff members be able to go to the Department of Justice, for instance, and to be able to interview the FBI director, the head of the Criminal Division, the head of the National Security Division. Try to get a sense of sense of what's the lay of the land where the priorities what the crises that might be boiling over by the time we get here, and that's what they're being denied. So I think there should be a lot of concern about this. The inability to advance to this next stage of the transition. It's not to say that it's going to necessarily result in some sort of crisis. I don't know that, but We want a country that's prepared so it strikes me as we're basically just sort of harming ourselves for no apparent reason, and we're inhibiting our ability. To be in the best possible situation. We can be on January 20th, and there's no reason for that. We have the resources. We have the capacity. So why? So let's talk about the why. And the who? So Emily Murphy is a name that most of us Probably weren't familiar with until now. She is a person who is at the head of the G s A. Can you talk a little bit about How her role what her role is and how much leeway she has to continue to refuse to release these funds or to allow The Biden team to start integrating with the outgoing Trump administration. So Emily Murphy is the administrator of the G S. A. It's a political appointment in the GSC itself is largely responsible for all the government real estate, so they help provide office space and oversee office space. Um, you know, and in most situations you would never even hear of the G s a in this particular case because all the transition funding the legislation housed it in the G s a She has the capacity to release the funding in the resource is to the party nominees and then eventually to the president elect by law. She is the one that has to ascertain the election, so there will be no funding going out until she does it. So what's tying our hands? I mean, she is appointed by President Trump. She must be a Republican who has some Loyalty to this administration and is unwilling to buck the advice. She's getting probably from Mark Meadows, probably the chief of staff who is weighing on her. So what happens? The electors meet in mid December, and they certify the results of this election. Is that the time in which you could argue that There just is no formal or legal option for the president to continue to It's sort of obstructed this process. Right? I think the meeting of the electoral college and the electors casting their ballots. And if if the numbers show that you know Biden exceeds 2 70 as he as they appear to now it strikes me that there is she has no justification. To deny the Biden campaign or president elect by and hit the resource is, however. This is a norm, shattering president and we've never had a president who has not conceded. He's lost the election. So normally, I would say yes. You know, that is clearly a decisive moment in American history when the electors cast their vote, And if Biden exceeds 2 70. He is the president. At the same time. I honestly don't know what to expect in this administration. It's very hard to predict many of his political appointees have been loyal to the core. You use the word norm shit or term norm shattering, and I'm wondering how close we are to instead of norm, shattering. Actual democracy damaging, I mean, really, fundamentally undermining the integrity. Of our government and the things on which it is built. I would contend that President Trump along with many senators, who are Denying the facts of the election results and are upholding sort of Trump's Baseless claims of fraud and stealing the election that they are undermining the very tenants of American democracy. In order to have a healthy democracy, the citizenry has to believe in the institutions. They have to believe that the elections that they voted are free and fair. And by actively perpetuating this notion that there has been fraud and some sort of stealing of votes. You are undermining the important tenets of American democracy. And that has long term implications and we are already at important and I would say high level of turmoil in this country. Pandemic has wrecked havoc on the account economy. Various incidents across the country have heightened racial tensions in this country. This is not a moment where we then need to undermine yet another important aspect of American democracy. How

"The attorney general bar authorizing the Justice Department to look into what he calls quote substantial allegations of voting irregular irregularities, despite the fact there's been a little evidence of any fraud. So far, the legal fights haven't gone anywhere. But the head of the NSA Emily Murphy, is affecting the Biden team by holding up its presidential transition to explain how that can happen. And for more information on Emily Murphy, Sean and Hillary talked about it with Washington Post National reporter Lisa Rain. She was confirmed by the Senate on DH. She has Ah ah, strong background in Federal contracting and had worked on Capitol Hill as an aide on Dad worked in the federal government and and so she's viewed as very competent. And she has also gotten entangled, though in some controversies involving the Trump Hotel, as well as the new location for you know, the FBI headquarters, which both involved Ah involved the president. But she has as do all GS administrators thiss kind of on known roll whenever you have a presidential transmit transition, where once President elected named You write a letter and you basically release millions of dollars in in federal funding, you know, as well as office space for transition teams of the agencies as well as just Access to the new the new administration. This case the President Biden elect and his team to federal agencies so that they can learn what's been going on for the past four years, and that she hasn't done Can you Can the Biden teen challenger or does it simply just have to wait her out? So right now, you know nothing that Emily Murphy has done is illegal in the law that actually was passed by Congress in I think it was 1962 or three does give her you know, the GIs administrator wide latitude you know, for when this letter is written, that sort of, you know, unleashes the transition resource is, but it's never really been tested before, right, Because normally, this's just a very pro forma thing. I mean, you know, after President Obama 12 hours later, you know, the Bush team have had written it their letter now in 2000, Bush v. Gore. We know that was, you know, disputed election that went on and on for weeks. Obviously, it took a while, but that's a different circumstance here than you know, a president. I'm not conceding.

Inspector general report: Trump involved in FBI headquarters decision

"The FBI needs a new home its current headquarters on. Pennsylvania Avenue here in Washington is literally crumbling and by all accounts. It doesn't meet the needs of the agency in a post nine eleven world members of congress thought they had a deal to, relocate the headquarters to a Washington suburb and sell the valuable downtown site to. Developers the. Trump administration abruptly, cancelled that, plan and now a government watchdog has raised questions about why NPR's Brian Naylor, has that story the General Services Administration the GSA is an essence the governance landlord it's been deeply involved in the ongoing debate. About a replacement, for the j Edgar, Hoover building the bureau's deteriorating brutalises. Style headquarters, which sits on a prime location on Pennsylvania Avenue. Now the inspector general of the says in a report that the head of. The agency Emily Murphy may. Have misled, congress during Hearing she failed to disclose, that she had met with President Trump. At the White House to discuss the FBI project democratic congressman Mike Quigley of Illinois question Murphy about the decision. To cancel the plan to. Move the FBI. Out of Washington during an April hearing here he is asking for the second time if the White House was involved in the, decision but again to your knowledge was the president. Or, anyone at the White House involved in those discussions either with your predecessors or people, you're with working with now or yourself Certainly, not. The destruction that we got came from. The FBI the the FBI director GSA what's requirements would be in fact, what Murphy failed to mention was that she did indeed meet with Trump at the White House this, past January and had two other. Discussions with White House officials about the project she told the inspector general. That her answers during the. Hearing were literally true but the I g disagreed in its report calling them incomplete, and possibly, misleading, the cliche goes. The three most important things in real estate are location location location the president's involvement in the FBI headquarters discussions are note worthy because of his ownership of the Trump International hotel which happens to be also. On the, same stretch of, Pennsylvania Avenue as the FBI democratic congressman Gerald Connolly of Virginia requested the, report he says the government's decision to cancel the FBI's move doesn't pass Smell test I think two things are going, on one is the President Trump personally does not want the FBI headquarters site redeveloped possibly with a hotel and. A restaurant, to compete with his hotel almost across the street the second reason says Connolly is the president's ongoing feud with the FBI I think he didn't want to quote reward them unquote. With a new functional headquarters inspector general's report also says the GSA has under. Reported the cost of demolishing and rebuilding the, FBI headquarters on its current site. By about half a billion. Dollars the suburban Washington district Connolly represents might, have, been. The side of the new FBI headquarters. To other sites being considered we're in Maryland but Connolly says his concern, is more about what he calls the tainted process surrounding the decision to stay on Pennsylvania Avenue he's, called for a hearing in which.
