Former White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster asserted that the military will not involve itself in a potential transfer of power in 2021, calling the idea “irresponsible”.
On Sunday during an interview on MSNBC’s “Meet The Press”, McMaster outright rejected host Chuck Todd’s suggestion that the military may get involved in the election.
“The military will have no role in a transition. In fact, to even talk about it, I think is irresponsible,” McMaster said.
“If you detect some reticence on the part of senior military leaders or people in the Pentagon to talk about it, it’s because it shouldn’t even be a topic for discussion.”
