  • Still Refusing To Greenlight Biden Victory, Head Of GSA Starts Jobhunting

    President-elect Joe Biden secured the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency more than a week ago. However, many of the president's allies and appointees have remained silent while Trump continues to falsely claim that he won the race. General Services Administration chief Emily Murphy is in charge of acknowledging the election winner and beginning the formal transfer of power. Murphy has not issued the 'letter of ascertainment' that triggers the release of funds and facilities allowing the transfer to begin. Now, Business Insider reports Murphy is privately exploring her job option, based on a message of Murphy discussing employment opportunities in 2021. The apparent job search contradicts President Donald Trump's messaging that he won the election.

  • Trump Campaign Fumes At Fox, AP Calling Arizona Race For Biden

    As of Thursday morning, most major US networks haven't called a winner of the presidential race in Arizona. But that's most networks--not all. Fox News and the Associated Press have each made a call, and that's become a problem. CNN reports the issue has become a bone of contention between the news organizations and President Donald Trump's campaign. Arizona's 11 Electoral College votes are pivotal to Trump's path to re-election. But Fox's decision desk called the race for Joe Biden. Trump allies spent Wednesday demanding that Fox retract its projection. Jared Kushner even called Fox owner Rupert Murdoch to complain--to no avail.
