The Pentagon is cooperating with the US President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team, Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller said.

Iran PressAmerica: The Pentagon is cooperating with the US President-elect Joe Biden's transition team,  Christopher Miller acting chief of the Pentagon said, pushing back against a newspaper report that the Trump administration blocked some briefings.

Planned transition meetings on Monday and Tuesday include the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) and the National Security Agency (NSA), according to a Defence Department (DoD) statement.

The Washington Post reported on Friday (Dec 4) that the administration had refused to let Biden's transition team meet with officials at Pentagon-controlled intelligence agencies such as the DIA and the NSA.

"The accusation by anonymous sources that DoD has not been fulfilling its commitment to professionally assist any of the Agency Review Teams is demonstrably false and patently insulting," the Pentagon said in the statement published on Saturday (Dec 5).

In the US presidential election, which took place on November 3 Democratic candidate Joe Biden won by 306 votes against Donald Trump with 232. 

Donald Trump's team has refused to accept defeat and has filed lawsuits in several states against what they say are electoral fraud, but these lawsuits have not been accepted in several states. 219
