Mike Pompeo: ‘There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration’

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tuesday that “there will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” dismissing a question about when the State Department might begin working with the transition team of former Vice President Joe Biden, whom several media outlets have declared the winner of the Nov. 3 election.

President Donald Trump has refused to concede the race, alleging voter fraud as several states continue to count votes. The Trump campaign has also filed lawsuits in several states.

What are the details?

A reporter asked Pompeo during a news conference, “Is the State Department currently preparing to engage with the Biden transition team, and if not, at what point does a delay hamper a smooth transition or pose a risk to national security?”

“There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” Pompeo replied, smiling before saying, “Right?”

“We’re ready,” he continued, “The world is watching what’s taking place, here. We’re gonna count all the votes. When the process is complete, there will be electors selected.”

The secretary of state added, “There’s a process. The Constitution lays it out pretty clearly. The world should have every confidence that the transition necessary to make sure that the State Department is functional today, successful today, and successful with a president who’s in office on January 20, a minute after noon, will also be successful.” “There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” Sec.

The Washington Examiner reported that Pompeo was also “asked if such public misgivings about the electoral outcome ‘discredit’ U.S. efforts to promote free and fair elections overseas.”

Pompeo then pointed to the contested 2000 election between former President George W. Bush and Democratic challenger Al Gore, saying, “It took us 37 plus days in an election back in 2000, [we] conducted a successful transition then. I am very confident that we will count, and we must count every legal vote … any vote that wasn’t lawful ought not be counted. That dilutes your vote, if it’s done improperly, right? When we get it right. We’ll get it right. We’re in good shape.”

But Democrats hit back at Pompeo for his comments.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) responded, “Look at reality. Secretary Pompeo, Joe Biden has won. He’s won the election. Now move on. Let’s bring this country together and get things done. We have a COVID crisis raging. We don’t have time for these kinds of games.” [email protected]: “Look at reality.

The states have until Dec. 9 to finalize their results and resolve any disputes. On Dec. 14, the Electoral College will finalize the outcome of the election.

  1. There is not going to be a 2nd Trump Administration!!!!! Stop telling him there will be one. Biden won fair and square.

    1. Haha! She said biden and fair and square in the same sentence. That’s funny!!!

      Well bless your heart Joan, there will be a second Trump administration, in or out of the White House. 71 million people voted against the implementation of socialism in this country and will not just roll over or stand idly by while it’s destroyed. biden use to be more moderate, before complete corruption, and that harris girl? Well, forget about it. She a freaking far left fruitcake.

    2. well, joan. there may or may not be a trump second re-election, but for sure there was NO FAIR AND SQUARE on that one. Get your terms straight and within the bounds of reality. abf

    3. How can you say this Joan when there is evidence of widespread fraud both in a fixed computer in as many as 23 States that was giving Biden thousands of votes for Trump; widespread fraud in absentee ballots in the thousands; backdating ballots so they arrive by November 3rd when this date has already past arriving at the Post Office and employees told to backdate them to the November 3rd. In a small State in numbers, Nevada was found to have 3062 voters who were either deceased or moved out of the State; votes for Biden. I am only reporting what the news has already reported and this is not meant to anger you, just let you know the truth in this.

  2. You Democratic people stuffed the balliot box you know it we know it own up to it you can’t be crocked and keep your job

  3. The way I really see this playing out is, This vast majority of legal votes were not credited to Donald Trump and the democratic party will pay the price during Biden’s administration if he’s elected.

  4. The different types of voter frauds in the resent election(s) have already been published. Let’s not forget the House and Senate elections that roll into these votes as well. The computer votes are easy to be programmed to reach any outcome you want. After over 42 years as a computer programmer, I have been tasked to write or modify code to produce end results the Users want. You can, in this case, move every other vote of one candidate to another candidate at the same time count the actual votes for the the other candidate. You can manipulate any combination of votes to make it look as though it it up and up. Reverse engineering will get the exact end result you need. There are all kinds of programming that can be done to change the outcome. I am sure it has been done over the years. Why would it be any different this time? The code then can be changed back by overlaying the old code in minutes to be used if a test is needed to check if it is working ok. Many ways to create voter fraud. The best way to help insure against voter fraud is to issue Voter IDs and vote IN person plus use the absentee voting requiring the person to physically obtain the form in person using the ID and turning it in to the local commission prior to the election. TSA is requiring you to have a star on your drivers license to be able to board an airplane. Why is voting less secure?
