Current and former Trump administration officials have privately reached out to President-elect Joe Biden's transition teams even as the president continues to refuse defeat and falsely claim victory, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Two Biden transition officials told NBC News on Wednesday that it was only a few current and former Trump administration officials and was described as "not a big deal."

The story was first reported by CNN.
