Skip to comments.BREAKING: McConnell Praises American Election ‘Processes’, Signals He Will Ignore Election Contests

Mitch McConnell signals that he will not back President Trump in his Republican-led Senate.
Despite ongoing discussion in Capitol Hill about the potential of several states being tossed out, leading to a contingent election, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has publicly shied away from President Donald Trump’s fight for election integrity and has instead appeared to align himself with Joe Biden.
In a video on the Senate floor, McConnell said “Americans voted in this year’s general election. Legal and Constitutional processes have continued to play out since then.”
“As of this morning, our country has officially a president-elect, and a vice-president elect,” said McConnell.
Glaringly, McConnell did not mention any of the ongoing election contests or lawsuits, or the several states that sent an alternate slate of Trump presidential electors to the Electoral College.
Instead, McConnell praised the “processes” in the American “system of government” for working correctly, even as widespread outrage over Dominion Voting Systems voting machines continues and the Arizona Senate has announced subpoenas for Dominion Voting Systems machines.
“Our system of government has processes to determine who will be sworn in on January 20, the Electoral College has spoken.” McConnell added, “So today I want to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden.”
McConnell also congratulated Kamala Harris, who he noted would be the first female vice president.
If Pence and the McConnell-led Senate were disqualify enough votes for both candidates to fall below 270, the presidential election would fall into a contingent election, wherein the U.S. House would elect the next president based on a quorum of states. In other words, despite some states sending several Representatives to the U.S. House, each state would have one vote for the purposes of electing the next President.

It’s too bad he doesn’t have a choice in the matter.
Only the president of the Senate does.
In DC Trump is all alone.
He knows this was stolen therefore he is now part of the theft.
He has 74+million friends. Just none in the Deep State.
If you are against integrity, you are on the wrong side.
If Mitch wants to be remembered for accepting fraud then so be it. It’s not his call anyway.
You did not seriously believe McConnell was going to back this foolishness, did you? There is no one in Washington happier with Biden that McConnell.
Its amazing, isn’t it?
The only way to destroy this miserable party is to not vote for it. The fight is coming regardless of the Georgia SELECTION, not election, but SELECTION.
I agree , time we drain our own swamp and rebuild after
He’s picked his side.
Everyone remember which side they pick.
Praising the stopping of counting on election night to dump in Biden votes ....awesome mitch you b*tch don’t slip on band banana peels
If read carefully, this still gives him wiggle room if there is some constitutional process that is invoked before Jan 6, the day the President is formally elected by Congress.
It’s possible he always was. https://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3915766/posts
Instead of calling McConnell “turkey neck”, we must call him “Chickenshit”. Much more telling and honest.
Mitch’s Chinese handlers (aka “in-laws”) have spoken.
Well, at least everyone is declaring whether he/she is a traitor right now. It’s good to know exactly where everyone stands.
