GSA chief says decision to allow transition to begin was 'solely mine'

By Reuters | November 24th 2020 at 08:10:05 GMT +0300

The head of the General Services Administration on Monday said the decision allowing the start of a presidential transition to Democrat Joe Biden was “solely mine” despite a tweet from U.S. President Donald Trump in which he said he recommended the move.

“I want you to hear directly from me: I was never pressured with regard to the substance or timing of my decision. The decision was solely mine,” GSA Administrator Emily Murphy said in a letter.

“I was not directly or indirectly pressured by any Executive Branch official — including those who work at the White House or GSA — to delay this determination or to speed it up.”
