Top CEOs secretly met to plan collective response to Trump’s denial of election results

Quote:
Two dozen of America’s top CEOs convened last Friday, as it appeared that Joe Biden would become the country’s 46th President, to discuss the possibility of current President Donald Trump’s refusing to leave office, according to sources who were present for the hour-plus video call. The exchange is surprising, given that the voice of business leadership has largely been missing from the conversation around the outcome of last week’s presidential election and the President’s unproven claims of massive voter fraud and “illegal” votes.

The CEOs discussed how to collectively handle a President who refused to leave office, as Trump has indicated he may do this January, while remaining neutral with the party currently in charge, according to Yale management professor Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, who led the meeting.

The CEOs agreed, said Sonnenfeld, that the President had a right to pursue legal action around the election. “They said if that makes people feel better, it doesn’t hurt anything to let that grind through,” he said.

But, if the President’s actions began to hurt the peaceful transition of power, the group said they may take public action collectively and privately put pressure on their Republican congresspeople to speak out.

The group is set to convene again next Friday to discuss whether further action is necessary.

Sonnenfeld did not reveal the names of the CEOs but said they were from Fortune 500 companies in various fields.

CEO lobbying group Business Roundtable, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the National Association of Manufacturers have also reportedly held video meetings this week to discuss how to move forward with the election results.

Kind of gross how much power corporations wield over governments, But, at least in this case they would be utilizing it for good.

At the meeting, billionaire Blackstone Group CEO Stephen Schwarzman defended President Donald Trump's saying that the president has a right to challenge the results and Pennsylvania results did appear suspicious.

He has the right to do and say many things hiding under in the protection afforded by the office of POTUS, wait till Jan 22nd and the FBI will have the right to arrest his fat ass.

What specific charges will the FBI arrest him on?

And I mean specific chargers listed under US law.

Please cite such laws you know of that will be used to place him under arrest, using this source or one that's equal to or better: https://www.usa.gov/laws-and-regulations

Once in court before a judge, his lawyers walked back claims of fraud and said everybody acted in good faith during the election. Neither did the witnesses who submitted reports claim fraud when asked by the judges directly. They were simply fixing mistakes made by voters when filling out forms and the electoral staff making procedural mistakes. These things probably happen every election and don't mean fraud or are large enough to change the result. They did ask to invalidate many more votes based on these mistakes, and judges denied them because it's not logical and way out of proportion.

Is that according to "TheRobotLives" source, or one that you haven't supplied yet?

It seems like the 1%'s own Frankenstein's Monster got off its leash and now they have to go catch it before and ravages their own yard. So sad. Why don't they just step aside and let the people handle him. These as*holes need to stop pretending they had no role in enabling this BS with their vast propaganda money. CEO's, you are the problem. Go away.
