President Donald Trump complains about election integrity, without citing evidence
Meanwhile, the Senate passed a resolution committing to a peaceful transfer of power.
WASHINGTON – US President Donald Trump reiterates doubts about the integrity of the upcoming elections, expressing concern about possible fraudulent mail-order voting.
“We want to ensure the elections are fair, and I’m not sure they can be,” Trump told reporters Thursday before leaving for North Carolina and Florida..
Trump said “many ballots were found in the river” and ballots bearing his name were “thrown in the trash”.
According to the Pennsylvania Attorney’s Office, a number of ballots filled out by the military have been discarded. Nine bulletins were found during the investigation.
“Some of these ballots can be used to determine who filled them in, and some – not,” the Justice Department said in a statement. – All nine ballots were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump “.
The President has repeatedly expressed concern that a number of states, including California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Utah, Vermont, and Washington, are planning to automatically send ballots to all residents.
FBI chief Christopher Ray, speaking at a Senate hearing on Thursday, said organizing large-scale election fraud is a daunting task for the enemy.
“But do not hesitate, we are vigilant and closely monitor the threat, because we are in uncharted territory,” he assured.

Meanwhile, the Senate on Thursday approved a symbolic resolution reaffirming its “commitment to the orderly and peaceful transfer of power as provided for by the Constitution.”.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tweeted: “The winner of the November 3 election will be sworn in on January 20. There will be an orderly transfer of power, as has been happening every four years since 1792 “.
