The information shared by the Trump-led administration confirming that the US Secretary of Defense has refused to impose sanctions on the panel that elected the president confirms that so far more than previous governments.
“The Department of Defense conducted 164 interviews with more than 400 employees and provided more than 5,000 pages of documentation – more than what the Biden change committee initially requested,” said Chris Miller.
“Attempts (…) have already exceeded three weeks earlier than the latest administrations, and we will continue to schedule additional meetings for the remaining changes and respond to any and all requests for information.“The governor was added in response to Democrat Joe Biden, who won the US presidential election in November.
Democrat Joe Biden, President-elect of the United States, said on Monday that there were still “obstacles” to the transition between administrations, particularly the Pentagon and the Office of Management and Budget.
“We faced obstacles on the part of the political leaders of the Department of Defense and the Office of Management and Budget. The truth is that many of the agencies that are central to our security have suffered great damage, many of which have reduced staffing and morale.“, Biden lamented, via social networking site Twitter, from Wilmington, Delaware.
The incumbent president said the committee responsible for the transition between the administration of the outgoing president, Republican Donald Trump and Biden, did not yet have “all the necessary information” in the country’s “key security areas”.
Less than a month after being invested as the 46th president of the United States, Biden says, with the exception of the Pentagon and the Office of Management and Budget, the rest of the federal system has contributed to a smooth transition between administrations.
On December 18, current Secretary of Defense Chris Miller announced a unilateral suspension of meetings with Biden’s until January 1, which was condemned by Democrats and called “opposition.”
More than 24 days after leaving the White House, Donald Trump has yet to recognize Biden’s victory in the November 3 presidential election.
