The mayor of Philadelphia had some choice words for President Donald Trump on Friday, calling for the president to concede the election to former Vice President Joe Biden.

The race in Pennsylvania, a state Trump must win in order to gain a second term, is still too close to call with about 124,000 more ballots left to count as of Friday morning. As of 2:45 pm with 98% of estimated votes in, NPR reports that Biden currently holds a small but growing 13,662-vote lead over Trump in the Keystone State.

“You know, I think that the president needs to do is, frankly, put his big boy pants on and he needs to acknowledge the fact that he lost and he needs to congratulate the winner,” Mayor Jim Kenny told reporters at a midday press conference.

He then added that Trump should concede “just as Jimmy Carter did, just as George H.W. Bush did, and, frankly, just as Al Gore did—and stop this and let us move forward as a country.”

While the Trump campaign had prematurely declared victory in Pennsylvania, Biden is not officially declaring victory either but has said he is confident that he will ultimately win the election based on current trends in ballot counting.

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
