THIS MORNING, CAPITOL HILL IS SENDING PRESIDENT TRUMP A CLEAR MESSAGE – UNANIMOUSLY PASSING A RESOLUTION COMMITTING TO A PEACEFUL TRANSITION OF POWER…
SOMETHING THE PRESIDENT REFUSES TO DO.
WHSL DEPARTURE 9.24:
“We want to make sure the election is honest and I am not sure that it can be. I don’t know that it can be.”
DOWN IN SEVERAL KEY BATTLEGROUND STATES, THE PRESIDENT IS STOKING UNFOUNDED FEARS ABOUT ELECTION FRAUD, BASELESSLY CLAIMING MAIL-IN VOTING WILL BE A SCAM.
BUT TRUMP’S OWN FBI DIRECTOR SAYS HE’S SEEN NO EVIDENCE OF THAT.
WRAY SOT FROM HOMELAND SECURITY HEARING 9.24:
“We have not seen not seen, historically, any kind of coordinated national voter fraud effort in a major election, whether it’s by mail or otherwise.”

TRUMP SOT FROM WH BRIEFING 9.23:
“Well, we’re going to have to see what happens. // get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very — we’ll have a very peaceful — there won’t be a transfer frankly. There will be a continuation.”

“People wonder about the peaceful transfer of power. I can assure you it will be peaceful.”
