Several high-profile Republicans on Thursday pushed back on President Trump’s refusal to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses in November, though all stopped short of rebuking the president directly.

The criticisms, in a series of tweets that didn’t mention Trump by name, came from Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.), a former presidential rival of Trump four years ago, and Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah), the GOP’s presidential nominee in 2012.

Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.), the highest-ranking GOP woman in Congress, and Rep. Steve Stivers (Ohio), who previously headed the House GOP’s campaign operation, also rejected Trump's decision not to embrace a peaceful transfer of power 40 days before the election.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who frequently refuses to weigh in on Trump's controversial comments, maintained that there would be an “orderly” transition in January.
These people will say anything to cover up Trump's plan to seize power through SCOTUS & the Electoral college.
