The Biden-Harris transition team is considering pursuing legal action if the head of the federal agency overseeing the mechanics of a transfer of power doesn't move in the coming days to free up funding and access to agencies.

When asked if the transition team would possibly consider legal action to hasten the mechanics of the transition, the official replied: "There are a number of options on the table, legal action is certainly a possibility, but there are other options as well that we're considering.".

CBS News and several other news outlets were not invited to participate in the call, but a separate transition official confirmed the quotes.

The Biden-Harris transition office has been operational since late summer in accordance with federal laws dictating how a smooth and peaceful transition of power should occur.

On Sunday, the agency said her position hasn't changed and that she cannot yet ascertain the winner of the presidential race.

It added that so far the agency "has met all statutory requirements under the [Presidential Transition Act] for this election cycle and will continue to do so.".

Aides of President-elect Biden expressed frustration Monday that the president has refused to concede and is thus holding up the transition. »

Why it matters: President Trump has refused to concede the election to President-elect Joe Biden, alleging a conspiracy of widespread voting fraud, but he has yet to provide relevant evidence.

Pilger states to colleagues in an email, also obtained by the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the new DOJ policy is "abrogating the forty-year old Non-Interference Policy for ballot fraud investigation in the period prior to elections becoming certified and uncontested.".

Of note: Democrats have accused Barr of politicizing his role and of political interference in cases involving Trump associates — claims he strongly denies. »
