HAfter the government agency for General Services (GSA) recognized Biden’s victory in the November 3 elections, career civil servants opened the agency’s doors to hundreds of members of the Biden to prepare for the January 20 inauguration.

And on Tuesday, signed an authorization for Biden to receive the daily bulletin produced by intelligence services aimed at the president and key government leaders.

On Tuesday afternoon, Biden’s transition team was in contact with all federal agencies about the planning of the transfer of power, according to one of its members.

But Trump, who has yet to formally admit defeat – and may never do so – continues to cast doubts about the electoral process, despite an assessment of his own government’s services that has gone on without any fraud, malpractice or widespread interference.

Since his defeat, Trump has maintained a low profile. Today he appeared in the White House press room to make a one-minute statement about the record on the Dow Jones Industrial Average and later gave the traditional pardon to the turkey in Jardim das Rosas. He hasn’t answered a question from journalists for weeks.

But on the social network Twitter, he has not stopped writing about the presidential elections.

“Remember, the GSA has been terrific and (its director) Emily Murphy has done a great job, but the GSA does not determine who will be the next President of the United States,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Tuesday morning. market.

His team of lawyers has continued to challenge, in a futile way, the electoral results in decisive States.

Murphy took action after the State of Michigan certified Biden’s victory and a Pennsylvania State judge rejected the lawsuit aimed at preventing certification of results in this State.

Pennsylvania certified its results and attributed its 20 votes to Joe Biden on Tuesday morning, followed hours later by the State of Nevada.

On the other hand, more and more Republicans are publicly acknowledging Biden’s victory, after weeks of silence in the face of Trump’s accusations of fraud in the electoral process, without ever proving them.

In the past few days, several senior Trump collaborators, such as chief of staff, Mark Meadows, and adviser Pat Cipollone, encouraged him to authorize the transition of power, telling him that he did not have to admit defeat, but that he could not continue to postpone the transfer work for Biden’s team.

On Monday, Meadows sent a document to White House officials, saying that their work had not yet ended and that the government would “comply with all necessary actions to ensure a smooth transfer of power,” according to one of recipients of the text.

At the same time, he warned employees who do not have specific authorization to interact with Biden’s team so that they do not contact her.

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told reporters on Tuesday that hours after the GSA acknowledged Biden’s victory, the top leaders of his agency were in contact with the president-elect team to agree meetings, including on the distribution of vaccines against coronavirus.

“We are delivering all the transition materials that were prepared,” added Azar. “We will also ensure coordinated meetings with them to ensure that they get the information they feel they need.”

The manager who manages the transition team at the Pentagon with the Biden team said that the first meeting, virtually, will take place on Thursday morning and that he expects it to be followed by daily meetings, some in virtual mode, others in person.

This leader, Tom Muir, told reporters that Biden’s team was well received, including the provision of materials, videoconferencing capabilities and physical space within the Pentagon.

In the same register, a spokesman for the Department of Urban Development and Housing (HUD) said: “HUD career officials began the process of scheduling meetings with the Biden transition team in response to your orders “.

The GSA decision frees millions of dollars in federal support for the transition of power and gives its staff access to federal spaces and support services, including computers, phones and secure meeting rooms.
