U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made clear at a press conference on Tuesday, Nov. 10, that the world could be confident that there will be a smooth post-election transition, but that it would be one for a second Trump administration.
Pompeo’s comments irritated Democrats who, along with the legacy media, hold the idea that their candidate, Joe Biden, won the election without having completed the election count.
“Is the State Department currently preparing to engage with the Biden transition team and, if not, at what point does it delay, hamper a smooth transition or pose a risk to national security?” asked one reporter, as reported by BizPac Review.
Pompeo responded, “There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” he said. “And we’re ready. The world is watching what’s taking place.”
Pompeo also reaffirmed intentions to conduct a recount and after that process is completed “There will be electors selected,” he said.
Pompeo said that a successful transition was required for the State Department to remain functional and assured that the government would do what was necessary to continue to carry out its national security functions.
Another reporter apparently questioned Pompeo about how the State Department was committed to free and fair elections around the world, questioning President Trump’s claims of rejecting Biden’s premature victory.
“That’s ridiculous and you know it’s ridiculous, and you asked it because it’s ridiculous,” Pompeo said. “This department cares deeply to make sure that elections around the world are safe and secure, and free and fair. And my officers risk their lives to ensure that that happens.”
“We often encounter situations where it’s not clear about a particular election. We work to uncover facts, we work to do discovery, to learn whether in fact the outcome, the decision that was made reflected the will of the people,” Pompeo added.
Currently, President Trump’s legal team is assembling vote-counting teams in several key battleground states in an effort to present evidence that reveals the fraud employed by the Democrats.
In states such as Georgia, Arizona, and Pennsylvania, outgoing Rep. Doug Collins, former Trump attorney Kory Langhofer, and Ron Hicks of Porter Wright will challenge the results in court.
In states like Pennsylvania, President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, has announced that there are some 60 or 70 eyewitnesses who have identified election fraud and are willing to testify.
