McConnell defends Trump’s legal rights: ‘No lectures’ from those who ‘spent 4 yrs refusing to accept’ last election

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took to the floor of the U.S. Senate Monday to expose the rank hypocrisy of the Democratic Party, and the double standard that’s continually on display.

Standing up for President Donald Trump’s legal right to challenge the outcome of an election marred by voter fraud allegations and a flood of millions of mail-in ballots, McConnell dismissed cries on the left about this constituting a national crisis.

 

“Let’s have no 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,” said the senator from Kentucky. “And who insinuated this one would be illegitimate, too, if they lost again — only if they lost. Let’s have no lectures on this subject from that contingent.”

The Republican leader reminded the nation of Hillary Clinton calling on Joe Biden to “not concede under any circumstances.”

“In late August, Secretary Hillary Clinton said, quote, ‘Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances. I think this is going to drag out, and he will win if we don’t give an inch,’” McConnell said. “That same month, Speaker Pelosi and the Democratic Leader both stated, quote, ‘President Trump needs to cheat to win.’ In October, when Speaker Pelosi was shopping some conspiracy theory about the Postal Service, she recklessly said, quote, ‘I have no doubt that the president will lie, cheat, and steal, to win this election.’”

“Does this sound like a chorus that has any credibility whatsoever to say a few legal challenges from President Trump represent some kind of crisis?” he continued. “At this time last week, small-business owners in cities across America were boarding up their windows in case President Trump appeared to win and far-left mobs decided to reprise their summer rioting. Suffice to say a few legal inquiries from the President do not exactly spell the end of the Republic.”

McConnell took care to note that “no states have yet certified their election results. We have at least one or two states that are already on track for a recount and I believe the president may have legal challenges underway in at least five states.”

Citing the 2000 election, McConnell said, “President Trump is 100% within his rights to look into allegations of irregularities and weigh his legal options.”

The corrupt media that carried Biden across the finish line and then rushed to call the election in his favor responded to the floor speech by bemoaning that McConnell declined to congratulate “President-elect Biden.”

The media establishment insists there’s “no evidence” of voter fraud and is currently engaged in a game of beating the bushes to find weak-kneed Republicans willing to go on record congratulating Biden on his presumed win and call on Trump to concede.

Should a Biden presidency ultimately be America’s fate, Republicans will surely fear what that may entail, understanding that the radical left will dictate much of the 77-year-old candidate’s agenda.

However, the greater threat to this nation is a compromised media colluding with a political party and the outright censorship of conservatives seen from Big Tech in the lead up to the election.

Two critical problems that will be further solidified under a Biden administration.
