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.
10 former defense secretaries: Involving military in election disputes would be dangerous, unlawful – The Washington Post https://t.co/F8jGDtYPhn

“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.

IMO, warmongers and fools.
Trump is just trying to stay out of jail.
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 “.
Well Mr. Duff, I just have to ask what does society do with insane military intel vets?
Why where we go to Church we give you an invite to come
believe strongly that any invite was Spirit led
