Robert O’Brien, a national security adviser for President Donald Trump, has stated that he believes that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has won the election and promises there will be a “professional transition.”
The remarks from O’Brien were made during a global security forum last week that was sponsored by the Soufan Center and aired on Monday. In the stream, he stated President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris “obviously” look like the winners of the 2020 election.
“Look, if the Biden-Harris ticket is determined to be the winner — and obviously things look that way now — we’ll have a very professional transition from the National Security Council,” he said, adding that the Biden team is “going to have very professional folks who are coming in to take these positions, many of whom have been here before and spent a lot of time in the White House in prior administrations. And the great thing in the United States of America, we’ve passed the baton and had peaceful, successful transitions even in the most contentious periods.”
O’Brien continued, “I’m old enough to remember Bush v. Gore, and the transition there didn’t start until mid-December. And yet, it got done. And if we’re in a situation where we’re not going into a Trump second term, which I think people where I’m sitting in the White House would like to see, if it’s another outcome, it will be a professional transition. There’s no question about it.”
The adviser’s comments stand in stark contrast to several others in President Trump’s orbit, whether from the campaign or the White House.
Perhaps this guy doesn’t understand what is at stake in this election?
We need to ensure this was a fair and free election. One where every legal vote was counted, every citizen’s voice heard. We cannot allow this election to be stolen through voter fraud.
To not stand against voter fraud is to essentially surrender our whole republic. Without free and fair elections, everything crumbles. Every single instance of alleged voter fraud needs to be investigated and if individuals are found to have participated in that kind of action, they need to be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
