I Can’t Tell If Lindsey Graham Is Supporting Trump or Selling Him Out With His Latest Tweet


Lindsey Graham has always felt a bit slippery.

You want to trust him….

You hope he’s truly on your side….

And then SLIP, he slithers away like a snake in the grass.

I can’t tell which Lindsey Graham we’re currently dealing with right now.

Is it the Lindsey Graham who stood up in the Senate to deliver an impassioned defense of Judge Kavanaugh during this appointment hearings?

Or is it the Lindsey Graham who has so often spinelessly been all bark and no bite when it comes to standing with Republicans on important issues?

You’ll have to be the judge on this one.

Yesterday we brought you news that Ted Cruz was now leading a coalition of 11 Senators to challenge the election results.

Story here.

Well, Lindsey Graham is not a fan.

Is it because he has a better plan and thinks this is weak?

Or if he selling out President Trump?

Here was his Tweet explaining his position:

When he explained more, it only led to more confusion.

Read these:

The Hill had more details:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), one of President Trump’s closest allies, pushed back on Sunday against an effort to contest the results of the presidential election by GOP senators and senators-elect as an unrealistic “political dodge.”

Eleven GOP senators led by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Saturday said a commission should be set up to investigate the election won by President-elect Joe Biden.

They joined Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) in saying they would contest the results of the election.

“Proposing a commission at this late date – which has zero chance of becoming reality – is not effectively fighting for President Trump. It appears to be more of a political dodge than an effective remedy,” Graham tweeted Sunday along with a Fox News article about the effort by Cruz and others to set up an electoral commission to audit vote results in disputed states.

Graham tweeted that he looks forward to hearing the objections of Cruz, Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.) and others but warned, “They will need to provide proof of the charges they are making.”

In a follow-up statement circulated to the media, Graham said his colleagues will have to “provide clear and convincing evidence that the failure to act – in both the state and federal courts and the states legislatures which investigated these claims – was made in error.”

He also said GOP colleagues challenging electoral votes need to show that “the failure to take corrective action in addressing election fraud changed the outcome of these states’ votes and ultimately the outcome of the election.”

“They have a high bar to clear,” he added.

Graham was an early ally of Trump’s questioning of electoral votes in key states and contacted Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) in November to find out more information about how his state verified the authenticity of mail-in ballots.

Hawley was the first Republican senator to announce his intention to object to the electoral votes for Biden in disputed swing states. He, however, did not sign on to a letter Cruz and 10 other Republicans released Saturday calling for the formation of a special commission to audit the results of the 2020 election.

In a letter circulated Saturday, Cruz and his allies called for the appointment of a commission to conduct a 10-day emergency audit and to give individual states the opportunity to convene a special legislative session to certify or change their electoral votes.

Graham is the latest Republican senator to caution against efforts to challenge the tally of Electoral College votes on Jan. 6, when the Senate and House are scheduled to meet in a joint session.

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), who is retiring at the end of 2022 and whose home state of Pennsylvania is one of five states facing challenges to its electoral votes, issued a strong statement on Saturday announcing his intention to oppose Cruz’s effort.

What do you think?
