National security analyst sees potential for
breakdown of
“peaceful transition of power” and “civil unrest”

Washington (A-CNN) - Toward the end of the third presidential debate, Donald Trump dropped a bomb that has rocked the Republican Party to its foundations and signaled deep trouble for his already failing campaign, as Hillary Clinton races ahead to victory on November 8. When asked if he would accept the results of the election no matter who won, Trump replied: “I’ll look at it at that time,” adding “I’ll keep you in suspense.”

“This is simply unprecedented in American history,” said DNC strategist Dave Cunning. “There is a sacred tradition in America of conceding elections before they take place. The very idea that a candidate might challenge the outcome of an election strikes at the foundation of our 240-year-old democracy. No wonder Putin the dictator is trying to get Trump elected by hacking the DNC’s email system and changing all the wording of our emails to make us look bad—for which we have massive evidence, believe me. Trump’s refusal to pre-certify the results of this election is a disaster not only for the Republican Party, but for the American people.”

In the aftermath of the debate, Trump defenders angrily pointed to Al Gore’s challenge to the pivotal Florida election results in the Presidential election of 2000, his demand for a recount, his appeal to the Florida Supreme Court, which ordered a recount, and the ultimate resolution of the recount issue against Gore by the Supreme Court in Bush v. Gore before Gore conceded the election on December 13.

“Oh come on!” said Cunning in response to the argument.   “That election was rigged against Gore, whereas this election will be totally fair and above board in every state, believe me.”

Cunning rejected the allegation that, according to Wikileaks, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta noted in an email that millions of illegal aliens with driver’s licenses are able to vote by simply presenting their licenses and claiming to be citizens. “If you are Vladimir Putin, working closely with Donald Trump to subvert our democracy, you can make emails say anything you want,” said Cunning.

Trump defenders also pointed to the Veritas Project’s video of alleged admissions by Democratic Party operative Robert Creamer about how the party’s operatives have been “rigging elections for fifty years” by means of mass fraudulent registrations of illegal aliens in swing states, who are then transported to vote in cars rather than buses to make detection of the election fraud more difficult.

“Pure fantasy,” said Cunning. “Any video can be faked. This is just another of Trump’s crazy conspiracy theories.” While Creamer has resigned from his position with Democracy Partners following publication of the video, and has not denied its authenticity, the video’s credibility remains questionable because of its potentially harmful impact on the Clinton campaign.

Commenting on the Trump gaffe, which is certain to damage his already vanishingly small prospects on November 8, national security analyst Bailey Bogus noted: “This goes way beyond Trump being a sore loser and a conspiracy nut, who actually thinks elections in America can be rigged. We are talking here about the potential for civil unrest and the first interruption of the peaceful transfer of power in our nation’s history.   Trump is a dangerous hothead capable of anything, including an armed coup attempt, aided by his friend Putin, with Russia’s nuclear capability as blackmail.”

With Trump’s poll numbers rapidly collapsing in every battleground state because he groped numerous women in various ways, with hundreds more to come forward over the next three weeks, Trump supporters are increasingly less likely to turn out at the polls. “The alternative of violent resistance to a free and fair election cannot be discounted with this crowd” said Bogus.  

“We have never seen such a threat to national security as the one posed by Trump’s refusal to concede this election now,” Bogus concluded. “He has no chance of winning and there will be no credible basis to contest the vote count in any state, county or precinct, because our system is free and fair in every case. To suggest otherwise is to compromise our nation’s security. But that, apparently, is exactly what Putin and Trump have in mind.”
