    Michigan blijft achter Joe Biden staan

    De Amerikaanse staat Michigan heeft bij monde van twee Republikeinse vertegenwoordigers duidelijk gemaakt achter de winst van de verkozen president Joe Biden te blijven staan. Dat is een tegenvaller voor de zittende president Donald Trump, die vrijdag vertegenwoordigers van de Republikeinse partij in Michigan op het Witte Huis had ontboden. Trump probeert ook in Michigan het verkiezingstij te keren nadat een aantal rechtszaken door lokale rechters waren verworpen.

    Volgens Amerikaanse media proberen juridisch medewerkers van Trump de Republikeinse meerderheid van het parlement te overtuigen om de uitslag van de verkiezingen te negeren en Trump-vertegenwoordigers te benoemen.

    Ook het hertellen van de stemmen in de Amerikaanse staat Georgia heeft niets veranderd aan de verkiezingsuitslag in die staat. Het hertellen van circa vijf miljoen stembiljetten was volgens de autoriteiten nodig omdat de marge tussen president Trump en aankomend president Joe Biden erg klein was. De laatste lag na de eerste telling zo'n 14.000 stemmen voor, nu is de voorsprong 12.284 stemmen. Er is een handmatige telling gedaan die bevestigde dat de machinale telling vrijwel foutloos is gegaan.

    'Volkomen onverantwoord'
    Trump vroeg eergisteren ook een gedeeltelijke hertelling aan in de staat Wisconsin, nadat hij de benodigde $3 mln daarvoor bijeen had gebracht. In deze staat worden 800.000 stembiljetten in twee Democratische districten herteld, maar de kans lijkt klein dat de president de benodigde 20.608 stemmen krijgt die nodig zijn om de staat te winnen.

    De vertrekkende president weigert nog altijd zijn nederlaag te erkennen. Het bracht zijn opvolger ertoe diens gedrag als 'volkomen onverantwoord' te kenschetsen. 'Het is moeilijk te bevatten hoe deze man denkt', zei Biden. 'Het is gewoon schandalig wat hij doet.'

    Biden denkt niet dat de meeste Amerikanen zullen twijfelen over de juistheid van de verkiezingsuitslag. 'De overgrote meerderheid van de mensen gelooft dat de uitslag legitiem is.'

    Biden chief of staff Ron Klain to reporter G Stephanopoulos :

    President Trump “has set back the democratic norm here in the United States … a record number of Americans have rejected the Trump presidency and since then, Donald Trump has been rejecting democracy.”

    Biden nominates Alejandro Mayorkas, Latino Jew who has said Jews face heightened threat, as Homeland Security secretary

    Mayorkas, 60, the deputy secretary of Homeland Security under President Barack Obama, was born in Cuba to a Cuban Jewish father and Romanian Jewish mother. His mother survived the Holocaust.

    As deputy secretary, Mayorkas worked closely with Jewish groups and spoke often about the specific threats facing American Jews.

    Speaking in 2016 to the annual Washington conference of the Orthodox Union about nonprofit security grants, Mayorkas said, “The need is most acute in the Jewish community because of the ascension of anti-Semitism and hate crimes we see.”

    Democraten in het Huis van Afgevaardigden eisen dat er morgen een briefing cq verantwoording komt in het Huis door de GSA, over waarom het team van Joe Biden nog geen bevestiging krijgt dat Biden de verkiezing heeft gewonnen.

    Ronald Klain :

    The first ever special climate envoy who will have principal status on the NSC.

    John Kerry will be a huge game changer in fighting the climate crisis.

    John kerry ;

    The work we began with the Paris Agreement is far from done. I'm returning to government to get America back on track to address the biggest challenge of this generation and those that will follow. The climate crisis demands nothing less than all hands on deck.

    Na de certificering in Georgia en in Michigan, + de verwerping van de Wisconsin-processen van het Trump kamp, was de strijd voor Donald gestreden. De GSA had nu geen mogelijkheid meer om Joe Biden de transitiebevoegdheid te onthouden.

    En alzo geschiede : Vanavond heeft de GSA de lang verhoopte brief verstuurd aan Joe Biden :
    De officiele transitie mag starten !

    Dear Mr. Biden:
    As the Administrator of the U.S. General Services Administration, I have the ability under the Presidential Transition Act of 1963, as amended, to make certain post-election resources and services available to assist in the event of a presidential transition. See 3 U.S.C. § 102 note (the “Act”). I take this role seriously and, because of recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results, am transmitting this letter today to make those resources and services available to you.
    I have dedicated much of my adult life to public service, and I have always strived to do what is right. Please know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and available facts. 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. I did, however, receive threats online, by phone, and by mail directed at my safety, my family, my staff, and even my pets in an effort to coerce me into making this determination prematurely. Even in the face of thousands of threats, I always remained committed to upholding the law.
    Contrary to media reports and insinuations, my decision was not made out of fear or favoritism. Instead, I strongly believe that the statute requires that the GSA Administrator ascertain, not impose, the apparent president-elect. Unfortunately, the statute provides no procedures or standards for this process, so I looked to precedent from prior elections involving legal challenges and incomplete counts. GSA does not dictate the outcome of legal disputes and recounts, nor does it determine whether such proceedings are reasonable or justified. These are issues that the Constitution, federal laws, and state laws leave to the election certification process and decisions by courts of competent jurisdiction. I do not think that an agency charged with improving federal procurement and property management should place itself above the constitutionally-based election process. I strongly urge Congress to consider amendments to the Act.
    As you know, the GSA Administrator does not pick or certify the winner of a presidential election. Instead, the GSA Administrator’s role under the Act is extremely narrow: to make resources and services available in connection with a presidential transition. As stated, because of recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results, I have determined that you may access the post-election resources and services described in Section 3 of the Act upon request. The actual winner of the presidential election will be determined by the electoral process detailed in the Constitution.
    Section 7 of the Act and Public Law 116-159, dated October 1, 2020, which provides continuing appropriations until December 11, 2020, makes $6,300,000 available to you to carry out the provisions of Section 3 of the Act. In addition, $1,000,000 is authorized, pursuant to Public Law 116-159, to provide appointee orientation sessions and a transition directory. I remind you that Section 6 of the Act imposes reporting requirements on you as a condition for receiving services and funds from GSA.
    If there is anything we can do to assist you, please contact Ms. Mary D. Gibert, the Federal Transition Coordinator.
    Sincerely,

    Emily W. Murphy
    Administrator
    U.S. General Services Administration

    En ook de Ascertainment Letter van de GSA is overhandigd volgens CNN :

    "In accordance with the Presidential Transition Act of 1963, as amended, today, November 23, 2020. the GSA Administrator has ascertained Joseph R. Biden and Senator Kamala Harris the apparent successful candidates for the offices of President and Vice President, respectively, Mary Gilbert, the federal transition coordinator, wrote in an email to federal department contacts."
