Joe Biden’s team is preparing a lawsuit in connection with the fact that officials from the General Services Department did not recognize the Democrat as the winner of the presidential race.
Typically, Federal Agency Support Department recognizes the president when the results of the vote are known. This is necessary to ensure the transfer of power.
This time it’s different. While Biden has already been declared president-elect by the US media, the board refuses to recognize the Democrat as the winner. The press service of the department says that at the moment it is still «not clear who won». A Reuters source notes that the head of the department, Emily Murphy, chose to proceed with caution.
In this regard, Biden’s headquarters is preparing a lawsuit, as by its refusal, the department blocks the Democrats’ access to millions of dollars of federal funding.
“A lawsuit is certainly possible, but there are other options that we are considering”, — a source familiar with the situation told the reporters.
The Office of General Services is depriving Biden’s team of the ability to pay salaries, he said. Also, Democrats do not have access to the US State Department.
This situation was already observed during the controversial 2000 elections, when Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Al Gore fought for the White House. Then the management did not make a decision for five weeks.
