전 플로리다 대법원장 중 2000 recount warns Trump poses 'grave and real threat to democracy'

워싱턴 The former chief justice of the Florida Supreme Court is warning that 도널드 트럼프 대통령 poses a “우리 민주주의에 대한 중대하고 진정한 위협” because of his threat to not accept the outcome of the election.

I set out my thoughts here because I am compelled to believe that our country, and thus our children and grandchildren, face a grave threat to keeping the kind of representative democracy that we have experienced in our life,” Charles Wells wrote in a letter sent to friends this weekend and provided to CNN. “I do not believe that we have had as serious a threat during our lives.
Wells served on the Florida Supreme Court during the recount of the 2000 선거 between George W. Bush and Al Gore and retired in 2009.
    Wells added that he believes only a significant victory by 조 바이든 will prevent Trump from succeeding in undermining the legitimacy of the election.
    The only way that I can see that this threat can be eliminated is to vote for Biden,” Wells wrote. “It will not be enough to just not vote for Trump. Any basis for a contested election can only really be eliminated is by the election not being close. “
    Speaking to CNN’s Alisyn Camerota onNew Day” 월요일, Wells said he has concerns that this year’s election could be even more contested than 2000.
    The thing that also bothers me is the statements that there’s not going to be, if Trump loses the election, a peaceful transfer of power,” Wells said, 첨가, “We are depending upon people voting and those votes being counted expeditiously.
      Democrats in recent weeks have prepared for legal challenges in the event Trump contests election results. They are bracing for a wide range of scenarios, covering everything from Trump trying to deploy federal law enforcement officials to the polls, to Republican state legislatures overruling a state’s popular vote, to Trump declaring victory on election night when millions of mail-in ballots still have to be counted.
