Every Living Former Defense Secretary Tells Trump to Accept Defeat

The Washington Post just released tape of Trump threatening Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger in an attempt to overturn election results


Daily Beast: All 10 living former U.S Defense Secretaries had a stern message for a Republican Party looking to overturn the results of the 2020 election: Stop. “The time for questioning the results has passed,” the group wrote in a Sunday editorial, published by The Washington Post.

“Efforts to involve the U.S. armed forces in resolving election disputes would take us into dangerous, unlawful and unconstitutional territory.” Among the former Pentagon heads who signed on to the op-ed include both of President Trump’s defense secretaries, James Mattis and Mark Esper.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney, whose 2000 electoral victory alongside George W. Bush ultimately came down to a Supreme Court decision, also signed on.

“Each of us swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. We did not swear it to an individual or a party,” the letter reads.

  2. Mr. Duff,

    As far as odds go on this issue I will bet my pension.

    1000 to one on one hundred dollars as I believe your intelligence to be very reliable.

    His risk 100 dollars as mine would cost me my pension as my pal says will not continue however, got 10 years out of mine as my mom passed at one hundred and two. LOL

  3. The signers overestimate their actual standing, as it is more in line with the perpetrator.
    I guess I would say, ‘thanks, we didn’t need you to tell us”, and “no this does not absolve you “.
