U.S Senate leader, Mitch McConnell endorses Trump and refuses to accept Joe Biden’s victory

The United States Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, has suggested in another worsening of the post-electoral dilemma in the White House that the presidential election has not yet been determined to conclude that President Trump may indeed be the winner.

Biden was expected to win the presidential election on Saturday by major US news media, but Biden’s transition process was delayed by the reluctance of US President Donald Trump to concede.

As legal challenges by the Trump Administration have delayed the process, the electoral body responsible for the elections has not yet decided the winner of the election.

Senate Leader McConnell has now declined to accept Biden’s victory, saying the election is not over.

Mitch McConnel said, speaking on Tuesday November 10;

Whoever runs for office will exhaust questions about counting in every court of sufficient jurisdiction before the electoral college votes. It isn’t rare. This ought not to be disturbing. At some point here, we will eventually find out who has been approved in each of these states and the winner will be decided by the electoral college and that person will be sworn in on January 20th. No reason for any warning,’ said McConnell.

Law enforcement officials told The Associated Press on Sunday, September 20, that she was arrested at the New York-Canada border. The letter had been intercepted last week before it reached the White House. The woman was taken into custody by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Peace Bridge border crossing near Buffalo and is expected to face federal charges, the officials said. Her name was not immediately released. The letter addressed to the White House appeared to have originated in Canada, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have said. It was intercepted at a government facility that screens mail addressed to the White House and President Donald Trump and a preliminary investigation indicated it tested positive for ricin, according to the officials who spoke on condition of anonymity since they were not authorised to discuss the ongoing investigation publicly. There have been several prior instances in which U.S. officials have been targeted with ricin sent through the mail. A Navy veteran was arrested in 2018 and confessed to sending envelopes to Trump and members of his administration that contained the substance from which ricin is derived. The letters were intercepted, and no one was hurt. In 2014, a Mississippi man was sentenced to 25 years in prison after sending letters dusted with ricin to President Barack Obama and other officials.

I don’t think something that has happened so far interrupts the ordinary process of going through the different steps I have indicated and enabling it to work through the transition if there is a new administration. Both of these steps will be taken at the right time, McConnell said, arguing that as Trump continues not to recognize the election, the transition process will not be adversely impacted.

Roy Blunt, another Republican senator, reiterated that message, saying, “The President was not defeated by massive numbers-he might not have been defeated at all, in fact.”

McConnell, who was re-elected as the top Republican Senate, acknowledged that it will not be clear until January whether, due to the Georgia Senate election, he will be Senate Majority Leader.

“We’re excited to get moving even though there’s some suspense on whether or not we’re going to be in the majority, which will be addressed on January 5 in Georgia,” said McConnell.
