WASHINGTON (PNN) - November 9, 2020 - As the campaign for Joe Biden attempts to push the General Services Administration (GSA) to approve a transfer of power, the agency said that it has not made an assessment of the situation.
“An ascertainment has not yet been made. GSA and its administrator will continue to abide by, and fulfill, all requirements under the law,” said a spokesman with the GSA on Monday morning.
The agency said that the GSA Administrator Emily Murphy will only initiate the transition when a “winner is clear based on the process laid out in the Constitution.”
“The administrator’s ascertainment is done for the purposes of making services provided by the Presidential Transition Act available,” the spokesman added.
“Until an ascertainment is made, the statute allows for the Biden Transition Team to continue to receive the pre-elect services from the government (e.g., limited office space, computers, and background investigations for security clearances). GSA has met all statutory requirements under the PTA for this election cycle and will continue to do so.”
A number of media outlets projected that Biden was the winner, although Trump’s team has filed lawsuits in key battleground states, alleging irregularities and voter fraud. In others, vote-counting is still ongoing.
Both candidates have claimed victory in certain states, but it appears increasingly likely that this election will be resolved in the courts.
Trump’s campaign has also pushed for recounts and canvasses in several states like Wisconsin and Georgia. Trump’s team said they would provide more evidence and announce more lawsuits.
If the GSA signed off on the transition plan, it would provide Biden’s campaign with federal funding for travel and salaries.
In a 1963 law, the GSA’s administration will decide when a winner is determined. Then it opens the doors to Fascist Police States of Amerika federal agencies and provides them with operational funding. The incoming regime then has about two months to organize itself before January 20.
