President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team criticized what Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller called “a holiday pause” in briefings to prepare for the new administration.

The halt announced on Friday came after the Defense Department said it was cooperating fully in the delayed transition that’s under way across the federal government with just over a month before Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.
