The campaign to pressure state lawmakers to influence election results is “not only unprecedented but also incompatible with the democratic process,” Lisa Murkowski pointed out.
Republican US Senator Lisa Murkowski (from Alaska) called on the White House to fully begin transferring cases to the new administration, criticizing the ongoing attempts of her party member Donald Trump to question the results of the presidential election.
“It’s time to start a full and formal transition process,” the lawmaker said in a statement she posted on Twitter.
“As states complete procedures related to the 2020 election and approve the results, we all have an obligation to ensure that we maintain the purity of the electoral process and protect the faith of Americans in our electoral system. Each state worked to ensure a free and fair electoral process. President Trump had the opportunity to present his claims through the courts, and so far, the courts have recognized them as unfounded. The campaign to pressure state lawmakers to influence the election results is not only unprecedented but also incompatible with our democratic process,” added Murkowski, who had previously congratulated Democrat Joseph Biden on winning the US election, among several other Republican senators.
