(AP) — Despite President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says President Donald Trump is “100% within his rights” to question election results and consider legal options. The Republican leader says the process will play out and “reach its conclusion.” Trump has declined to concede the presidential race and is mounting legal fights, but there has been no indication or evidence of voter irregularities or fraud in the election. McConnell’s comments show how reluctant Trump’s allies have been to defy the president, even in defeat. Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer calls the GOP refusal to accept the outcome “dangerous” to democracy.
