Live Updates: McConnell backs Trump legal fight in election results


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell backed the Trump campaign’s legal challenge of voting results in several battleground states on Monday in his first public comments on the floor since Election Day.

In his remarks, McConnell, R-Ky., said, “no states have yet certified their election results” and that recounts are already expected to occur in “at least one or two states.” The longtime senator argued that President Trump is “100 percent within his rights to look into allegations of irregularities and weigh his legal options.”

Meanwhile, Attorney General William Barr on Monday gave federal prosecutors the green light to pursue “substantial allegations” of voting irregularities before the 2020 presidential election is certified next month, even though little evidence of fraud has been put forth.
