Pentagon to 'immediately' start work with Biden's transition team

The United States Department of Defense said it plans to "immediately" start working with President-elect Joe Biden's transition team in order to provide support for the next administration per the ascertainment by the General Services Administration (GSA).

"DoD is prepared to provide post-election services and support in a professional, orderly, and efficient manner that is befitting of the public's expectation of the Department & our commitment to national security," Pentagon spokesperson Sue Gough wrote in a statement.

The GSA earlier authorized Biden to access federal funding for the presidential transition after the process was stalled for weeks with President Donald Trump refusing to concede the election, claiming it was "stolen" from him.
