The Republican party, Donald Trump is facing some pressure to works with the Democratic Elect President Joe Biden’s team to ensure a smooth transfer of power when the new administration takes office in January.
However, the General Services Administration is tasked with formally recognising Biden as president-elect, which begins the transition.
But the Emily Murphy who is the agency’s Trump appointed administrator has not started the process and has given no guidance on when she will do so.
Scoop: the nonpartisan Presidential Transition Center, former W. Chief of staff Josh Bolten, and former UT Gov. Mike Leavitt call on the GSA to ascertain that Biden has won.
Until they do, Biden’s transition can’t officially begin.

The advisory board of the nonpartisan Center for Presidential Transition also urged the Trump administration to “immediately begin the post-election transition process and the Biden team to take full advantage of the resources available under the Presidential Transition Act.”
