President Donald Trump and his legal team continued on Thursday to undermine confidence in democracy in America with unfounded allegations and conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election, which was won by President-elect Joe Biden.
Two GOP senators have criticized the actions of Trump and his legal team, spearheaded by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) went further, accusing Trump of trying to "subvert the will of the people and overturn the election."
That leaves 50 members of the GOP Senate Caucus who have yet to follow suit, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), as reported by Yahoo News senior political correspondent Jon Ward.
