McConnell, Pelosi Dispute Trump, Vow Peaceful Power Transfer
WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressional leaders, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are pushing back after President Donald Trump declined to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the Nov. 3 presidential election.
McConnell vowed an “orderly transition” as has been done since the nation's founding.
Pelosi said she trusts voters.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Trump ally and chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday, “If Republicans lose we will accept the result. If the Supreme Court rules in favor of Joe Biden, I will accept that result.”
Several others came forward, including Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah and Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming.
