Public and private actions of the Trump official blocking Biden transition say two different things

first_img– Advertisement – Murphy’s obstruction is becoming more dangerous by the day, with the likely release of tens of millions of doses of COVID-19 vaccine presenting a huge logistical challenge for the incoming administration. Dr. Anthony Fauci warned in multiple interviews over the past few days: “We want a smooth process with [vaccine distribution] and the way you do that is by essentially having the two groups speak to each other and exchange information,” likening it to passing a baton in a relay race without breaking stride.But Murphy doesn’t think the entire nation deserves as much preparation for a change of power as she personally does. Murphy “recently sent that message to an associate inquiring about employment opportunities in 2021,” ABC News reports. It would seem she plans to be looking in Trumpworld since the kind of notoriety she’s drawing for her refusal to ascertain Biden’s victory and allow the transition isn’t likely to be an asset in too many other places.“Here’s somebody who refuses to sign the letter of transition but is self-dealing at the same time,” Rep. Gerry Connolly told ABC News. “That’s a de facto recognition that there’s an incoming administration, and it’s not called Trump—it’s called Biden.”- Advertisement –last_img
