“I want to tell world leaders that the US is back in the game,” says president-elect | Justice Department Election Crimes Director Richard Pilger Resigns | President Donald Trump removes his defense secretary, while rushing complaints in court about an alleged fraud in the vote
The New York Times says that after speaking with election officials in a dozen states, they find no evidence of electoral fraud. The cover with a six-column headline has not liked the supporters of the president, Donald Trump, who has not yet acknowledged his defeat against Democrat Joe Biden. The situation is generating tension in the Republican party. “I want to tell world leaders that the United States is back in the game,” Biden assured this Tuesday at a press conference in which he considered that Trump’s legal battle and the accusations of electoral fraud are being “embarrassing.” The Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, has assured however that “there will be a smooth transition to a second Trump Administration.” On Monday, the United States Attorney General, William Barr, authorized an investigation into Trump’s allegations of electoral fraud. Barr told federal prosecutors to investigate “substantial” allegations of voting irregularities, but not to pursue “fanciful or implausible claims.” Following this authorization, the director of electoral crimes of the United States Department of Justice, Richard Pilger, resigned.
