The team of the elected US President Joe Biden (77) has called for immediate access to the confidential findings of the secret services and the government’s plans to contain the corona pandemic. Because so far Donald Trump (74) has refused.
But the current US president’s strolling strategy is not only annoying, but also dangerous. With his behavior, Trump is endangering national security, said Jen Psak (41), a spokeswoman for Biden, on Friday. Important documents about secret military operations or information about the terrorist organization Al Qaeda are still under lock and key. The fight against the virus is also blocked in this way. The information “would help our preparation for government significantly,” Biden’s spokeswoman clarified.
Republican Trump refuses to recognize Biden’s election victory. He continues to believe in electoral fraud and sees postal voting as the root of all evil. Because of the corona pandemic, so many Americans have never voted by postal vote. There is no evidence that the election was rigged. Even if Dan Patrick (70), the Vice Governor of Texas, has now even offered a high reward for hints. Up to a million dollars!
Even George W. Bush is ashamed of Trump
The Trump administration has therefore not yet issued a letter that would initiate the legally stipulated transition. This would give Biden and his team access to government ministries, agencies and confidential information before they took office on January 20.
Psaki said Biden’s team does not want to go to court to sue the president-elect. However, such a step cannot be ruled out either. Recently, individual Republicans had also called for Biden to have access to current intelligence so that he was fully capable of acting from day one in office. Among them even the former President George W. Bush (74).
“We want easy access”
In the fight against the corona pandemic, for example, Biden must have the necessary information about the development of vaccines and the plans for distribution, demanded Psaki. “We just want access to intelligence, threat scenarios and ongoing work on Covid so we can prepare governance, bring the people of America together and bring the pandemic under control,” said Psaki.
Biden will be spending the weekend with his family and has not planned any public appearances, said Psaki. After the election campaign and the preparations for taking over government, he definitely “earned a few days off”. (SDA / jmh)
