Joe Biden won the election more than a week ago. But the General Services Administration — the agency that certifies presidential transitions — is still blocking Biden’s transition team from accessing government resources. POLITICO’s Alex Thompson breaks down why the GSA is holding things up and whether it could affect the Covid response. Plus, the White House orders the Pentagon to begin planning troop withdrawals in Afghanistan and Iraq. And several governors put in place stricter coronavirus measures.
