Sen. James Lankford said Monday that he did "step in" with the General Services Administration late last week over the presidential transition process -- and seemed satisfied with the agency's handling of the matter, although there is no indication yet that Joe Biden will start getting the intelligence briefings that the Oklahoma Republican said he wanted the President-elect to receive.

(CNN)Sen. James Lankford said Monday that he did "step in" with the General Services Administration late last week over the presidential transition process -- and seemed satisfied with the agency's handling of the matter, although there is no indication yet that Joe Biden will start getting the intelligence briefings that the Oklahoma Republican said he wanted the President-elect to receive.

Lankford said he talked to the agency about the process it needs to take to determine if Biden is the President-elect and a formal transition should begin, including intelligence briefings for the new administration.

The comments come after Lankford drew attention last week when he said that Biden should be getting briefed on national security matters by November 13.

Lankford claimed Monday he was not being inconsistent: "Nothing changed for me. " He argued that he's "concerned" about the shortened transition process and wants to make sure that Biden gets some level of briefings as Trump disputes the election results.
