Sen. McConnell: Include President-Elect Biden on the President’s Daily Brief

Target: Mitch McConnell, United States Senator and Majority Leader

Goal: Advocate for President-elect Biden to be included in intelligence briefings.

President-Elect Joe Biden is currently not included on intelligence briefings as a result of the Trump administration not accepting the results of the recent presidential election. Without the proper knowledge to lead the country, the transition between President Trump and President-elect Biden will not be smooth and does not set the nation up for success by informing our future leader of necessary and sensitive information. In fact, the refusal to include Biden in intelligence briefings could pose a risk to the safety and security of the United States as he scrambles to get up to speed once taking office.

A handful of Senate Republicans have broken with the Trump administration, arguing that President-elect Biden must have access to high-level classified intelligence, even as President Trump continues to contest election results. Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma has said that Biden must receive what is known as the “president’s daily brief,” which summarizes the most urgent and credible national security threats.

All lawmakers should be in agreement with this customary sharing of information during the presidential transition of power. Sign this petition to urge Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican Majority Leader, to advocate for President-Elect Biden to be included on the president’s daily brief.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator McConnell,

In order for the United States to be seamlessly secure during the transition of presidential power, President-elect Biden must be included in security and intelligence briefings that outline the current threats to national security. By keeping this information from Biden, the Trump administration  is creating an opportunity for the country to be weakened by the forthcoming President’s lack of knowledge of sensitive issues and threats.

We are at a moment in time where every politician and every citizen of the United States must make a decision about what they value more: the man currently serving as President or the safety and security of the United States. I urge you to choose the latter and advocate for President-elect Biden to be included on the president’s daily brief, despite President Trump’s continued baseless dispute of the election results.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    briefings. Trump get over yourself you lost, deal with it!

  2. Mitch McConnell needs to accept Biden as the new incoming President and adhere to the way things have been done in this democracy for centuries. Presidents-elect should be included in sessions and informed about the state of our Country in world politics and United States issues. To those it may concern – STOP PLAYING GAMES!!!

  3. Frump needs to GET OUT!!!!! He lost!!!!!
