With only three days before the general elections and Democratic candidate Joe Biden holding a commanding lead in polls, the question of a peaceful transfer of power has been frequently asked, with President Trump giving non-assertive answers.
CNN has recently reported a secretive process that a would-be Biden administration has been underway for months with the help of top Trump officials.
The United States has been recognized as a beacon of democracy, and its core is the tradition, regardless of party, of a peaceful transition between the outgoing and incoming administrations.
As quoted in the CNN report “that a possible transition from Trump to Biden — because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the differences between the two candidates and the economic downturn gripping the nation — could be among the most consequential in modern history.”
The President has met any transition questions by levying unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud.
That has not stopped his chief of staff Mark Meadows and deputy chief of staff for policy coordination Chris Liddell, from working with Biden’s team to prepare for the possible handover.
However, that has not stopped the Biden team from preparing for potential obstacles. There are plenty of legal issues to work through, and that’s why the Biden team has assembled an expansive legal team, led by Bauer and the Biden campaign’s general counsel Dana Remus, to focus on potential voting and election issues.
The general elections are Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020.
