Briefing by @PressSec underway.
First question goes to @kevincorke.
"He wants every legal vote counted," says @PressSec of @POTUS, deferring questions about paths forward to the campaign (for which she's gone on TV to speak in her supposedly personal capacity).
"He will be meeting later on," with #Michigan state lawmaker, confirms @PressSec. "This will not be an advocacy meeting" and no one from the @realDonaldTrump campaign will be present.
There "are real claims" which "deserve to be pursued," says @PressSec replying to @steveholland1 on when @realDonaldTrump will concede.
"I've never heard of an instruction" for administration officials not to communicate with @Transition46, says @PressSec.
"President Trump oversaw all of this," says @PressSec of the "American ingenuity" which she says has prevented 2 million #COVID19 deaths in the US.
"Orwellian" for #Oregon to threaten to jail for 30 days more than 6 people in any home, says @PressSec.
Asked again about conceding, @PressSec says @POTUS is "pursuing ongoing litigation and taking it day by day."
And @PressSec departs after taking a small number of questions.
“I don’t call on activists” said @PressSec as she departed, according to @tamarakeithNPR who was in the briefing room.
Unclear if this was a reference to @BrianKarem standing in the back (in violation of @whca social distancing guidelines) who was shouting at various points during the briefing, as @tamarakeithNPR notes in her radio pool report.
Also not called on was @CNN. A reporter for the pro-@realDonaldTrump @OANN (who was also standing in the back of the room in violation of @whca #coronavirus protocol) did get an opportunity to ask a question of @PressSec.
