Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller ordered all Pentagon departments to stop cooperating with the incoming Biden administration’s transition team on Thursday night.
Axios reports: “A top Biden official was unaware of the directive. Administration officials left open the possibility cooperation would resume after a holiday pause. The officials were unsure what prompted Miller’s action, or whether President Trump approved. Miller’s move, which stunned officials throughout the Pentagon, was the biggest eruption yet of animus and mistrust toward the Biden team from the top level of the Trump administration.”
