Lawyers for the Biden campaign are accusing President Trump and his allies of trying to “interfere with the inevitable.”
Joe Biden is the projected winner of the 2020 presidential race. However, Trump refuses to concede the election and pursues legal challenges to ballots in several states.
The White House and Trump political appointees told government officials not to start working with the Biden transition team. They can only do so when the General Services Administration (GSA) makes it official that Biden won the presidential race.
The GSA “has yet to officially determine that Biden is the winner of the election,” Fox News explained. It is “a decision which a spokesperson defended as consistent with precedent established during the 2000 Bush-Gore legal fight.”
The Biden legal team slammed Trump’s refusal to concede.
“For somebody to judge how this is done in the past, they should look to the past and with the exception of Florida 2000, which is a very bad example, I think, as you well know, certainly not at all analogous to this situation,” said Biden legal adviser Bob Bauer on Tuesday. “The ascertainment, as it’s called, would have been done by now.”
“I think that there’s every indication from every corner that President Trump, his campaign, his allies are trying everything to interfere with the inevitable. But we are pushing forward and we are confident that the inevitable is a very successful administration,” said Biden campaign General Counsel Dana Remus.
