The General Services Administration has informed President-elect Joe Biden that the Trump administration is ready to begin the formal transition process.
The letter is the standard first step the administration has taken to acknowledge President Donald Trump
's defeat, only two weeks after Biden was declared by the media (not officially, yet) the winner in the election.
Murphy said she had not been pressured by the White House to delay the formal transition and did not make a decision "out of fear or favoritism."
"Please know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and available facts," Murphy wrote. "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."
The letter marks Murphy's formal sign off on Biden's victory, a normally perfunctory process known as ascertainment. The move will allow the transition to officially begin, permitting current administration agency officials to coordinate with the incoming Biden team, and providing millions in government funding for the transition.
All the brain-washed that claim that Trump will never do it will have to invent now a new conspiracy theory.
