We understood then what should be evident now: Matters of national security must transcend domestic political division.
Today, as our country faces vast foreign and domestic risks, President-elect Joe Biden’s transition must be treated not as an exercise in politics but as the security imperative it is.
What’s more, Mr. Biden’s transition team has been denied access to federal agencies, transition funds, office space and classified information.
Perhaps most alarmingly, the president-elect has not yet been able to begin government background checks on key national security appointees, which could stall appointments, putting American national security at risk.
On Nov. 12, a group of over 150 former national security officials issued a letter warning that “delaying the transition further poses a serious risk to our national security.”An orderly presidential transition is needed to keep America secure.
