Bret Baier to Mike Pompeo: Were You Serious in Saying There’d Be a Smooth Transition to the 2nd Trump Admin.?

‘We will have a smooth transition’

EXCERPT:

BAIER: "You were asked today about the concerns about a smooth transition and you said there will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration. Were you being serious there?"

POMPEO: "We'll have a smooth transition and we will see what people ultimately decided when all the votes have been cast. We have a process, Bret, the Constitution lays out how electors vote. It’s a very detailed process. We need to comply with all of that, and I’m very confident that we will have a good transition, that we will make sure that whoever is in office on noon on January 20th has all the tools readily available so we don’t skip a beat with a capacity to keep Americans safe. That’s what I was speaking to today.”
