The National Council on Election Integrity, a bipartisan group made up of more than 40 former elected officials, former Cabinet secretaries, retired military officials, and civic leaders, also voiced support for the integrity of the recent elections.
The group — which includes former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, former Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff — put out a separate statement describing the 2020 elections as “safe, secure, transparent, free, and fair.”
“In 2020, a record number of Americans made their voices heard,” the group of former officials said. “Now it’s time for all Americans — including President Trump — to accept the election results. Peddling baseless conspiracy theories only undermines our democratic process and makes it harder for the country to unite to tackle the numerous serious issues facing us today, from our national security to our economy to the deadly coronavirus pandemic.”
