  • One Of Trump's Many Former Chiefs Of Staff Says Trump Is Harming National Security

    John Kelly, former chief of staff to President Donald Trump has accused Trump of hurting national security in his refusal to concede to President-elect Joe Biden. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence says Biden will not receive high-level intelligence briefings until the situation is resolved. The Trump-appointed head of the General Services Administration has declined to formally recognize Biden as the apparent or likely winner of the election. The GSA is a massive agency that keeps the federal government running and is central to facilitating the transition process from one administration to another. It's Emily Murphy's role under federal law to issue a letter of 'ascertainment' on the election results, which officially triggers the onset of the transition. According to Business Insider, the Trump campaign's many legal challenges to the election results are unlikely to go anywhere.
