Mitch McConnell Backs Trump Campaign’s Legal Fight
While most establishment Republicans have gone silent on the Trump administration’s efforts to contest the election, Mitch McConnell just spoke out in support of their legal battles.
Speaking before the Senate floor earlier today, McConnell said that President Trump has “every right to look into allegations and request recounts.”
AG Barr was also spotted in McConnell’s office earlier this morning.
Just when the Democrats think it is done. The champagne bottles have been popped & streamers are still on the floor. Pelosi is enjoying her liquid brunch & Schumer is boasting to take over the world.

While most Republicans have remained silent, four have congratulated Biden on his media-proclaimed victory so far: Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Ben Sasses. In other words; the usual suspects.
Last week Lindsey Graham announced that he would be donating $500k to Trump’s legal defense fund. “He helped Senate Republicans, we’re going to pick up House seats…. I’m going to donate $500,000 tonight to President Trump’s defense legal fund,” Graham said on Fox News. The money is expected to come out of his campaign account.
As I wrote about earlier today, there are a handful of irregularities in the election results that should raise red flags. President Trump won the bellwether states of Ohio and Florida, the winners of which historically always go on to win the election as a whole (with few exceptions), and also nearly every bellwether county. Those are just some oddities in addition to all the allegations of voter fraud.
If the media got away with pushing the narrative that the 2016 election was influenced by the Russians, conservatives should at least be able to ask about some obvious red flags this election cycle without being branded conspiracy theorists.
As McConnel himself put it; “Let’s not have any lectures, no lectures, about how the president should immediately, cheerfully accept preliminary election results from the same characters who just spent four years refusing to accept the validity of the last election and who insinuated that this one would be illegitimate too if they lost again — only if they lost.”
