TRUMP AIDES SETTING `ROADBLOCKS' FOR TRANSITION: BIDEN
President-elect Joe Biden said on Monday many of America's security agencies had been “hollowed out” under President Donald Trump and the lack of information being provided to his transition team was irresponsible. “We've encountered roadblocks from the political leadership at the Department of Defense and the Office of Management and Budget,” Biden said. “Right now we just aren't getting all of the information that we need from the outgoing administration in key national security areas. It's nothing short, in my view, of irresponsibility.” Trump, a Republican, has refused to concede defeat and his administration only authorized cooperation with Biden on Nov. 23. Biden takes office on Jan. 20. Earlier this month, Biden's team said they had met resistance from some Pentagon officials.
