FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Amid the breach of the Capitol, Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams said on Wednesday that this is the first time the United States has had to question a peaceful transfer of power.

"In 200 plus years of our history, we've never questioned whether there would be a peaceful transfer of power," Sec. Adams said.

Secretary of State Michael Adams says it's not possible to steal an election in Kentucky. He says our elections are fair and they’re run by both Democrats and Republicans.

When asked if President Trump is wrong in saying that this election was stolen from him, Adams said "I think he's wrong in terms of there being some sort of mass conspiracy to steal the election."
