(CNN) The General Services Administration has informed President-elect Joe Biden that the Trump administration is ready to begin the formal transition process, according to a letter from Administrator Emily Murphy sent Monday afternoon and obtained by CNN.

The letter is the first step the administration has taken to acknowledge President Donald Trump’s defeat, more than two weeks after Biden was declared the winner in the election.

Murphy said she had not been pressured by the White House to delay the formal transition and did not make a decision “out of fear or favoritism.”

“Please know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and available facts,” Murphy wrote. “I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any Executive Branch official — including those who work at the White House or GSA — with regard to the substance or timing of my decision. To be clear, I did not receive any direction to delay my determination.”

    Right, Emily.

    You didn’t need any direction because even before the votes were counted, any small child had already gotten TheTrumpDriftTM. Guess that means even you got it.

      There was a good piece on the news last night, can’t remember which program, concisely demonstrating how Emily AND the Trump administration lied their way through this thing. Both of them pointing fingers at the other. Murphy intimating through her proxies that she was only following orders (you know, the Nazi war criminal defence), while Trump fart-catchers like Kayleigh Mendacity were claiming that it was Murphy’s determination to make.

      Most scummy US administration ever.

    Poor media. What’re they going to do for #Clickbait once Trump’s gone and a Covid vaccine works.
    More firings and bankruptcies?

      Well, if they happen to be collectively bored, they can always watch this Prime Minister run his government right into the ground. The PM may even outdo Harper’s two prorogations. Stay tuned.

      At least Harper didn’t break his word and his bond every five minutes like this guy.
