Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska has stated on Twitter that the time has come for President Donald Trump to begin the transition process to the Biden presidency.
“President Trump has had the opportunity to litigate his claims, and the courts have thus far found them without merit,” she wrote on Sunday. “A pressure campaign on state legislators to influence the electoral outcome is not only unprecedented but inconsistent with our democratic process. It is time to begin the full and formal transition process.”
Not that Trump would listen to Murkowski. The two have a simmering animosity toward each other that has become more pronounced in recent months and was said to be a sticking point that was holding up the signing of the A2A “Alberta to Alaska” railroad agreement.
Trump has yet to concede the election and has pending legal challenges underway in battleground states.
Murkowski is among a growing number in the GOP that are now publicly speaking out that it is time for Trump to concede. Others include Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.
