(Clarity Times) The General Services Administration (GSA), a little-known government office, has finally agreed to let the U.S President-elect’s office begin the formal transition process. In a letter sent to the President-elect, the GSA Administrator Emily Murphy informs the Biden-Harris team of the services available to them upon request and that they can start taking advantage of.
Mrs. Murphy clarifies that she has not been pressured by anyone or the White House to delay the transition process; however, she made her decision independently in good faith and because of President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede.
“Please know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and 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 or timing of my decision. To be clear, I did not receive any direction to delay my determination” said Mrs. Murphy in the letter. Furthermore, she explains that the GSA does not dictate the outcome of legal disputes and recounts, nor does it determine whether such proceedings are reasonable or justified”.
The General Services Administrator urges Congress to consider amendments to the
Presidential Transition Act of 1963 creating the GSA.
