GOP senator says Trump to Biden transition should begin ‘tomorrow morning’

Sen. Kevin Cramer says the transition process for President-elect Joe Biden needs to begin on Monday morning.

“It should happen tomorrow because it didn’t happen last Monday,” Cramer told NBC’s Chuck Todd on Sunday. “I just think you have to begin that process.”

The North Dakota Republican said he feels it’s past time to begin the process to help prepare Biden, though he supports President Trump’s right to continue his legal proceedings regarding the results of the presidential election.

“[Trump] is a reflection of millions of people that want to see him fight this to the end,” Cramer said. “Now, there has to be an end. I frankly do think it’s past time to start a transition, to at least cooperate with the transition. I’d rather have a president that has more than one day to prepare should Joe Biden end up winning this, but in the meantime, again, he’s just exercising his legal options.”

Cramer is the latest in a number of Republicans who have called for the transition process to begin preparation for a Biden presidency, set to start in January.

Growing calls increased after national security experts said a delayed transition might put the country at a greater security risk, adding the process to transfer critical information about the country’s dealings is time-consuming.

Trump has yet to concede to Biden, who was declared the winner of the election by several media outlets more than two weeks ago. The Trump campaign is continuing legal fights in several states, citing allegations of voter fraud that have yet to be proven.

Cramer said if evidence is available on the Trump campaign’s allegations, they should be presented immediately in court.

“We’ve yet to see a real hearing where evidence is presented,” he said. “They’re not obligated to present it yesterday or tomorrow, although the sooner, the better.”
