The news is out: [The General Services Administration (GSA) official who is holding up the transition of President-elect Joe Biden has a long history of pro-Trump partisanship, a former government ethics director said.
Walter Shaub Jr., who was the director of the US Office of Government Ethics between 2013 and 2017, accused GSA’s head, Emily Murphy, of seemingly “putting her loyalty to Trump over her duty to the American people” in a scathing article for The New York Review of Books.
Murphy, an appointee of President Donald Trump, is the GSA official charged with formally recognizing the victor in a US presidential election, which allows a formal transition process to begin.
This nod from GSA releases resources to ensure a smooth transition for the president-elect, including, according to Shaub, $6.3 million in funds, office space, and key briefings.]
Any threat to the national security of the US should be dealt with according to the rule of law.
