National Security Officials Push for Biden to Receive Presidential Intelligence Briefings

HeadlineNov 13, 2020

CNN now projects Joe Biden has secured a win in Arizona, joining other news agencies that have already called the state for Biden. With Georgia and North Carolina’s races not yet called, Biden has secured 290 Electoral College votes, 20 more than needed to win the presidency. On Thursday, 150 former national security officials warned in a letter to Trump that delaying the transition to Joe Biden poses a “serious risk” to U.S. security.

Meanwhile, Pope Francis became the latest world leader to call Joe Biden to congratulate him on his victory. Biden will become the second Catholic U.S. president, following John F. Kennedy.
