NOT TODAY JOE: No keys for you

(CNN)A stack of mes­sages from for­eign lead­ers to Pres­i­dent-elect Joe Biden are sit­ting at the State Depart­ment but the Trump admin­is­tra­tion is pre­vent­ing him from access­ing them, accord­ing to State Depart­ment offi­cials famil­iar with the messages.

Tra­di­tion­al­ly, the State Depart­ment sup­ports all com­mu­ni­ca­tions for the Pres­i­dent-elect, which is why many coun­tries began send­ing mes­sages to State over the week­end. But with Biden pro­hib­it­ed from access­ing State Depart­ment resources by the Trump admin­is­tra­tion, because Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump refus­es to accept Biden’s vic­to­ry, dozens of incom­ing mes­sages have not been received.

Biden’s team is con­tact­ing for­eign gov­ern­ments on their own and he has held numer­ous calls with lead­ers, includ­ing Ger­many’s Angela Merkel and Canada’s Justin Trudeau. But they are oper­at­ing with­out the logis­ti­cal and trans­la­tion sup­port that the State Depart­ment oper­a­tions cen­ter provides.
