House Democrats tell GSA chief her refusal to certify Biden's win is "having grave effects"

Source: CBS News

Four House committee chairs demanded that the head of the agency that oversees the presidential transition brief them immediately as to why she refuses to formally kickstart the process by affirming that President-elect Joe Biden won the election.

The letter to General Services Administration chief Emily Murphy was signed by Oversight Committee Chair Carolyn Maloney, Appropriations Committee Chair Nita Lowey, as well as Gerry Connolly and Mike Quigley, who are subcommittee chairs.

"Your actions in blocking transition activities required under the law are having grave effects, including undermining the orderly transfer of power, impairing the incoming Administration's ability to respond to the coronavirus pandemic, hampering its ability to address our nation's dire economic crisis, and endangering our national security," the letter said. The chairs asked that Murphy personally brief them by no later than November 23.

The GSA has argued that Murphy has not signed the letter of ascertainment because there is litigation pending over the results in several states, citing the example of the 2000 election, when the process was delayed. However, in 2000, the two candidates were separated by only a few hundred votes in one state. Mr. Biden currently leads by thousands of votes in several states.

4. "Mr. Biden currently leads by thousands of votes in several states"

Not "thousands", TENS of thousands.

AZ = ~10k
GA = ~12k
WI - ~21k
PA = ~81k
MI = ~150k
