All 10 living former Defense Secretaries deliver extraordinary warning to Trump in scathing op-ed

All 10 living former Defense Secretaries have delivered an extraordinary warning to President Trump in an op-ed in which they denounced the possibility of military involvement in the current election dispute. 

The piece was published in The Washington Post on Monday, following calls from Trump’s allies to bring in the military in a bid to block Joe Biden from becoming the next Commander-in-chief. 

The 10 Defense Secretaries, who are both Republican and Democrat, did not mention Trump’s name in the piece, but clearly intended for the President to heed their message. 

‘Our elections have occurred. Recounts and audits have been conducted. Appropriate challenges have been addressed by the courts. Governors have certified the results. And the electoral college has voted. The time for questioning the results has passed,’ the group wrote. 

Efforts to involve the U.S. armed forces in resolving election disputes would take us into dangerous, unlawful and unconstitutional territory. 

The 10 living former Defense Secretaries were listed as alphabetically as the authors of the piece. 

They are Ashton Carter Dick Cheney, William Cohen,  Mark Esper, Robert Gates, Chuck Hagel, James Mattis, Leon Panetta, William Perry and Donald Rumsfeld.
