Senator Lindsey Graham has been in the spotlight lately, and I think people are trying to figure out exactly where he stands with the presidential election chaos.
On Tuesday, he dropped a truth bomb on reporters, asserting that Joe Biden is not the "president-elect" until President Donald Trump concedes, or the states certify the results and close court cases.
According to Wall Street Journal’s Lindsay Wise , Graham said, “Bottom line is you’re attacking the voting machines, you have to prove that, you can’t just say that. You know, there may be proof, I don’t know. But it’s kind of time now to show it in a court of law."
“We are at the point now where recounts are going on and it’s now time to put it up,” he added. “If there is no concession there is a contest. If there is a contest in court & the party loses, that’s the end of the contest. There is no way to overturn a election other than a court of law."
On Monday, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) accused the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman of implying that he should “look hard and see how many ballots you could throw out” during the recount effort in the Peach State.
“I want to be clear, you say Senator Graham wanted you to find ways to get rid of legally cast ballots. CNN asked him about these allegations. He denied them and said that’s ridiculous. His words, ‘that’s ridiculous,’” CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said.
“Well, just an implication that ‘look hard and see how many ballots you could throw out.’ And I think that they’re looking at that as part of a court case,” the secretary of state said.
Graham has stood by the president in the days following the election, explicitly stating that Trump “should not concede” during a November 8 appearance on Sunday Morning Futures.
“To my Republican colleagues out there, we have to fight back, or we will accept our fate,” he said at the time. Days later, he defended his call for Trump and his allies to question voter irregularities.
“We don’t need their permission to look into these allegations. We owe it to those who voted for President Trump and the country at large to test the system,” Graham concluded.
