Ayyyeee… What’s Goodie Everyone. So I got some tea and it involves The senate majority leader backing a president in the legal challenges against an election win.
Mitch McConnell (R.Ky.) threw his support behind President Trump’s legal challenges in the wake of his loss to President elect Joe Biden, saying on Monday that Trump is “100 percent within his right” to pursue recounts and litigation, even though Trump has produced no evidence of widespread voting fraud.
Trump has yet to concede the election. He announced the firing of the defense secretary in tweets, saying, “Mark Esper has been terminated” and that Christopher C. Miller, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, will be acting secretary of defense.
A Trump administration appointee is refusing to sign a letter allowing Biden’s transition team to formally begin its work this week, in another sign that the incumbent president has not acknowledged Biden’s victory and could disrupt the transfer of power.
