A group of senior Republican security experts have urged their congressmen to require Donald Trump to admit defeat. The Washington Post reported that first. Accordingly, the beginning of an orderly handover of official business to Joe Biden should be enabled quickly.
Trump’s refusal to allow a surrender “represents a significant risk to our national security,” says the statement, which has been signed by more than 100 party members. The signatories include former Pennsylvania Governor and ex-Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge, as well as former CIA director Michael Hayden and John. D. Negroponte, who was director of national intelligence under George W. Bush.
The signatories of the declaration urge their party colleagues to “stand up to Trump” in his “dangerous and extra-legal efforts to threaten and intimidate state officials in order to prevent a vote by the electoral college.”
Donald Trump still refuses to accept his defeat. He has already failed with several lawsuits against the election results of individual states. He is also accused of trying to influence state officials with regard to the election results.
The Senate Republican majority leader, Mitch McConnell, refused to comment on the statement, according to the Washington Post. There was initially no comment from the White House either.
The statement was released hours before the scheduled vote in Michigan to confirm election results in that state, which shows that Biden received nearly 140,000 more votes than Trump.
“President Trump’s continued efforts to challenge the validity of elections and intervene in state electoral processes undermine our democracy and risk long-term damage to our institutions,” the statement said.
