The General Services Administration (GSA) notified Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Monday, Nov. 23, by letter that some transition resources have been made available to him, while at the same time stating the presidency is still undecided.

GSA Administrator Emily Murphy said in the letter that some monies, including $6.3 million that will allow the Biden team to instigate the provisions of Section 3 of the Presidential Transition Act (pdf.)

“GSA does not dictate the outcome of legal disputes and recounts, nor does it determine whether such proceedings are reasonable or justified,” she wrote. “The actual winner of the presidential election will be determined by the electoral process detailed in the Constitution.”

Murphy said the decision to formally begin the transition of power to Biden was made independent of a large number of threats.

“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,” Murphy said in the letter.

Within minutes of the letter’s release, Trump took to Twitter to praise Murphy for her dedication and patriotism.

“I want to thank Emily Murphy at GSA for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our Country. She has been harassed, threatened, and abused—and I do not want to see this happen to her, her family, or employees of GSA,” President Trump wrote.

Then, later, on Monday, the president reminded his followers on Twitter, “What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history? We are moving full speed ahead. Will never concede to fake ballots & ‘Dominion.’”
