Biden’s move to announce cabinet choices and move forward with the presidential transition comes at a time when President Donald Trump is still refusing to waive the November 3 election.

Klein added that the Biden team was still unable to access government resources normally provided to aid the presidential transition, including intelligence briefings and a coronavirus vaccine distribution plan.
