Former independent counsel Ken Starr on Sunday called legal challenges to the presidential election an “important process” that should be allowed to play out.

In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Starr said the judicial system is perfectly designed to the process.

“Our system is designed to check, let’s check it out,” Starr urged. “A lawsuit was filed just on Wednesday. Let’s let this process run.”

He pointed to lawsuits filed in Michigan and elsewhere.

“If it is meritorious it would change over 1 million votes,” he said of the Michigan suit. “In Georgia ditto [where] there is a state recount underway” and an ”unprecedented flood of mail in-ballots.”

“This election we need to check,” Starr asserted.

Starr said the massive numbers of mail-in ballots generated “anecdotal evidence” that those ballots were sent to people who shouldn’t have gotten them.

“Everyone has heard, if his or her ears are open, anecdotal evidence, not proof, that people who should not have received those ballots received them… let’s accept the judgment of the courts,” he said.

Starr also dismissed the speculation that GOP state legislatures would appoint pro-President Donald Trump electors to the Electoral College in states Joe Biden won.

“The legislature does have the ultimate authority,” he said.

“I think it’s more of a theoretical possibility,” Starr added.
