Rand Paul Still Refuses to Admit That the Election Wasn't Stolen - 2021-01-24
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) grew increasingly agitated and testy on Sunday morning when ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos repeatedly pressed him to acknowledge that the 2020 presidential election wasn't stolen—something Paul refused to do.
Stephanopoulos immediately kicked off Sunday's This Week interview with Paul by asking him a "threshold" question about the results of the election, wondering aloud if he accepted that President Joe Biden's victory was legitimate and "not stolen," something former President Donald Trump and his allies have baselessly insisted and which eventually resulted in an insurrectionist riot.
"Well, what I would say is that the debate over whether or not there was fraud should occur, we never had any presentation in court," the Kentucky lawmaker deflected. "Most of the cases were thrown out for lack of standing, a procedural way of not hearing it."
