U.S. General Services Administration allows Biden transition funds to begin


U.S. President-elect Joe Biden on Monday was formally given the go-ahead by a federal agency to begin his transition to the White House, shortly after the battleground state of Michigan certified him as the winner there. With the rapid-fire developments, Republican President Donald Trump’s already languishing efforts to overturn his Nov. 3 election defeat appeared to be coming to a close. The U.S. General Services Administration, an independent agency, informed Biden, a Democrat, that his transition – leading up to a Jan. 20 inauguration – could officially begin. In a tweet, Trump wrote that GSA Administrator Emily Murphy and her team should “do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same.”
