Biz Leaders Hold Georgia Runoff Hostage Over Biden Transition Delay

What a dirty play.

As President Trump and his legal team continue to exhaust a number of options for keeping the incumbent Republican in the Oval Office come 2021, there are a number of business leaders in Georgia who are holding their state hostage over the issue.

Trump and his team have refused to concede the 2020 election as of yet, believing that they will be able to legally win the contest through a series of litigious actions.  This has prevented the Trump administration from unlocking the transitionary resources that incoming presidents usually have access to, leaving Joe Biden’s team out in the dark.

Now, with the balance of the Senate to be decided in Georgia on January 5th, a number of Peach State business leaders are threatening to sabotage these races should Trump not concede.

The Washington Post reports a group of more than 100 leading GOP national-security experts, including former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, have urged their congressional counterparts to demand Trump administration immediately acknowledge Joe Biden’s victory and start the handover. “President Trump’s refusal to permit the presidential transition posts significant risks to our national security, at a time when the U.S. confronts a global pandemic and faces serious threats from global adversaries, terrorist groups, and other forces,” a statement signed by more than 100 GOP luminaries said. The statement also called on “Republican leaders—specifically those in Congress—to publicly demand that President Trump cease his anti-democratic assault on the integrity of the presidential election.”

[…] on Monday, more than 100 top business leaders are issuing a letter demanding the same from the Trump administration. According to TheNew York Times, if a concession from Trump doesn’t happen, the executives may threaten to withhold campaign donations from the two Republican candidates in Georgia whose runoffs will determine the Senate’s balance of power. In the letter, the business leaders will demand that Emily Murphy, head of the General Services Administration, issues a letter to confirm that Biden has won and that the transition can begin.

There is currently no indication that Donald Trump will be considering a concession of the election until the entirety of his legal options are exhausted.
