Like all RINOs and establishment Republicans, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has no fight.
That’s not in President Trump’s DNA and his base certainly don’t have the words ‘give up’ in their vocabulary.
Trump had a message for McConnell after congratulating “President-elect Biden.”
Trump's allies slam Mitch McConnell for congratulating Biden https://t.co/ak9nu6420L via @MailOnline. Mitch, 75,000,000 VOTES, a record for a sitting President (by a lot). Too soon to give up. Republican Party must finally learn to fight. People are angry!

75 million American Patriots don’t want the president to give up this fight.
Trump gets it.
That’s the lesson these swamp rats in the establishment never learn.
The American people are tired of the political elites sticking up their noses and ignoring the will of the citizens they are supposed to represent.
Why else did they elect Trump in the 2016 election?
And they want their president to fight this fraudulent election until the very end.
For those 75 million Patriots (and probably more), you can bet this left a nasty taste in their mouths:

Many voiced their frustrations over McConnell’s statements.
Last Week – Mitch McConnell was just another political hack….
This Week – McConnell proved he's just another Communist sellout…

Mitch McConnell's little speech yesterday made me sick. What a sellout. Trying to get us to accept Biden, the tottering fraudulent presidential appointee, as president of this great country. NO EFFING WAY! #NeverConcede

If you dig deeper into McConnell’s ties, then it becomes clear who has his loyalty.

Mitch accepted donations from Dominion…just like Bill Barr who accepted more than 2 million since 2009. Dominion is involved in rigging elections and buying politicians in Washington DC.
American citizens are being made into FOOLS…our elections are completely rigged.

In July 2019 Newsweek article, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell @senatemajldr squelched 2 separate bills in Senate on Election Security. Received thousands of dollars in donations from Dominion Voting Systems & Election Systems and Software. Hummmm 🤔 pic.twitter.com/ULaSx9kxFM

Does this show that the 2020 election was a two-party operative rigging against President Trump?
You have to wonder which other GOP Congress members took donations from Dominion and other voting machine lobbyists.
The Political Insider had this to share:
A report from July of 2019 indicates Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell received thousands of dollars in donations from lobbyists for two of the largest electronic voting machine vendors in the United States – Election Systems & Software and Dominion Voting Systems.
Newsweek reported on the donations in noting that McConnell (R-KY) had squashed two separate bills in the Senate addressing election security.
The reports were based on an investigation by an outlet called ‘Sludge.’
“Several of the lobbyists working for ES&S and Dominion Voting Systems have recently made contributions to McConnell’s campaign and joint fundraising committee,” Sludge wrote.
The outlet discovered the following contributions:
Brownstein Hyatt Farber and Schreck lobbyist David Cohen, who lobbies for Dominion Voting Systems on issues related to election security and monitors federal legislation for the company, gave McConnell $2,000 on March 31: $1,000 to his campaign committee and $1,000 to his joint fundraising committee.
Lobbyist Brain Wild, who works alongside Cohen on the Dominion contract, gave McConnell $1,000 on the same day.
The BBC also notes McConnell’s entanglement with Dominion saying the “company has also donated” to his committee.
Particularly interesting from the Newsweek article is that they describe McConnell’s opposition to the election security bills as “out of balance with his party.”
The Senate Intelligence Committee, which is led by Republicans, had released a report with concerns about Russians targeting voting systems, including an instance in Illinois where “Russian cyberactors were in a position to delete or change voter data.”
In December of that same year, four congressional Democrats including Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) sent a letter to the owners of Dominion Voting Systems claiming several problems that “threaten the integrity of our elections,” including “vote switching.”
McConnell did agree to add $250 million for election security after having held up the earlier legislation.
President Trump, meanwhile, in arguing his case that there was fraud in the 2020 presidential election, has openly criticized Dominion.
“Now it is learned that the horrendous Dominion Voting System was used in Arizona (and big in Nevada),” Trump tweeted. “No wonder the result was a very close loss!”
Texas rejected Dominion voting machines due to safety concerns.
It comes as no surprise why McConnell urged Republican senators not to contest the election results in favor of Biden.
Politico reported on McConnell’s message to his Republican colleagues:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warned Republican senators Tuesday during a private caucus call not to object to the election results on Jan. 6, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
McConnell told his caucus that challenging the results would force Republicans to take a “terrible vote” because they would need to vote it down and appear against President Donald Trump. Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.) and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) also echoed McConnell’s remarks.
Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) said that no one objected on the call to McConnell encouraging members to accept the election results.
