Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., told Fox News on Thursday that President Donald Trump’s call to investigate his claims of election fraud actually “elevates” democracy, and does not “degrade” it as some have suggested.
"Many Democrats, some Republicans, a lot of members of the media, have their bowels in an uproar because the president refuses to concede and he's gone to court," he said on “America’s Newsroom” on Thursday. "Everybody's entitled to their opinion. This is America. The president has every right to offer his opinion about the election. Number two, he has every right to go to court and contest the results of the election, and you have every right to disagree. But that doesn't degrade democracy. It elevates it."
He added that mail-in voting isn’t “inherently fraudulent,” and that President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, wouldn’t be his “first choice,” to head the campaign’s legal effort.
"Should fraud be investigated? The short answer is yes," Kennedy concluded. "The long answer is hell yes."
