Joe Biden is in and Trump is out as the Trump Administration has finally made a U-turn on their claims regarding voter fraud Trump formally giving the green light to a Biden transition.
According to a letter obtained by CNN, the General Services Administration headed by Emily Murphy has informed President-elect Joe Biden that the Trump Admin is ready to begin the formal transition process.
According to a tweet released by Donald Trump, he has recommended that Emily Murphy go ahead with the formal transition process so as to protect her and the GSA staff because Murphy had been,” harassed, threatened and abused” by God knows who.
…fight, and I believe we will prevail! Nevertheless, in the best interest of our Country, I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same.

Murphy wrote in the letter that she made the decision independently based on law and available facts. “Please know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and available facts”
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.”
