Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller abruptly ordered a Pentagon-wide halt to cooperation with presumptive President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team, shocking Defense Department officials, according to a report.
Meetings between the Trump administration and Biden’s team have been ongoing since late November.
On Thursday night, however, Miller ordered all scheduled transition meetings to be canceled, according to Axios.
“We had fewer than two dozen remaining meetings on the schedule today and next week,” a senior Defense Department official told Axios. “The DOD staff working the meetings were overwhelmed by the number of meetings.”
