Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wouldn’t answer questions about President Donald Trump’s voter fraud claims during a press conference on Friday, instead referring reporters to a statement he made on Twitter.
McConnell’s response is a far cry from last year, when he publicly urged then-Gov. Matt Bevin to move on after the election despite Bevin’s unfounded claims of voter fraud.
Instead, McConnell repeatedly said that he had already covered the subject in his Tweet, in which he wrote “Every legal vote should be counted. Any illegally-submitted ballots must not. All sides must get to observe the process. And the courts are here to apply the laws & resolve disputes.”
