A new report is indicating that White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is the one who urged President Trump to begin the transition.
According to Fox News:
White House chief of staff Mark Meadows was one of the driving forces behind President Trump‘s decision to allow the presidential transition to begin, two sources familiar with their discussions told Fox News.
Late Monday, U.S. General Services Administration chief Emily Murphy informed President-elect Joe Biden that her agency has formally ascertained him as the apparent winner of the 2020 presidential election and would move ahead with transition proceedings, ending a weeks-long standoff in which the Biden transition team accused the GSA of withholding critical transition resources needed for a smooth transfer of power.
Soon after, the president thanked Murphy for her handling of the ascertainment process, while pledging to continue his legal challenge of the election results.
…fight, and I believe we will prevail! Nevertheless, in the best interest of our Country, I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same.

Sources told Fox News that Murphy’s letter, and the president’s follow-up tweet were things that had been “culminating,” but were pushed along after the Trump campaign’s Pennsylvania lawsuit was tossed out by a judge over the weekend, and after Michigan’s certification of Biden as the winner in the key battleground state on Monday afternoon.
Sources have stated to Fox News that the West Wing of the White House is currently like. ghost town.
Meadows is one of those that has NO SPINE… He is a mouse and he will side with anyone that has the “cheese” for him to eat. He is Spineless and can’t be trusted….
Pretty much like most Republicans these days. If any of them had a spine, the President would not have had to endure 3 years of the Russian Collusion HOAX!
THE SWAMP STRIKES AGAIN!
