Biden to receive his first Presidential Daily Briefing Monday, transition team confirms

WASHINGTON, Nov 30 — Joe Biden will receive the Presidential Daily Briefing for the first time on Monday, reported Sputnik news agency, quoting his office in a statement.

“On Monday, November 30, President-elect Joe Biden will receive the Presidential Daily Briefing. After, president-elect Biden will meet with transition advisors,” the Biden-Harris transition team said on Sunday.

On Wednesday, Biden’s transition team advisor Jen Psaki (appointed as Biden’s White House press secretary on Sunday) said that the first presidential daily briefing was expected to take place on Monday.

The presidential daily briefing is a daily rundown of threats and intelligence developments compiled by the national security community for the US leadership.

Earlier this month, Trump authorised the General Services Administration to initiate a formal transition to the Biden team while continuing to dispute the November 3 presidential election results.
