Democrat reps urge Biden to delay recognizing new government in Pakistan due to possible election rigging

A group of 31 House Democrats on Thursday urged President Joe Biden to delay recognizing the newly elected government of Pakistan because of possible election tampering there.

The letter, spearheaded by Reps. Greg Casar (TX) and Susan Wild (PA) asked Biden to throw his weight around by refusing to recognize the new government under Shehbaz Sharif, who was re-elected to a second term over his rival who was supported by Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is currently jailed, until a full investigation is completed.

The Democrats also want Biden to urge Pakistan to release any political prisoners or detainees and to threaten to withhold military and other cooperation if they don't do what he wants.

Could you just imagine how the U.S. government would react to any other world government refusing to recognize our government under similar circumstances?

Also, would these same House members support an investigation into the 2020 election in the U.S. or advocate delaying the institution of a new government during such an investigation?

It's extremely ironic for Democrats to be acting this way, and I'm pretty sure they don't even see it.
