Graham Regarded Trump’s Election Fraud Claims to be ‘Third-Grade Material,’ According to Woodward’s Book

According to a new book by journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) personally studied former President Trump’s claims of vote fraud in the days following the 2020 election and found them to be simple and lacking in substance.

Graham privately derided Trump’s efforts as “third grade” after pressuring the White House and Trump’s legal team for evidence to support the former president’s accusations of a “rigged” election, according to The Washington Post, citing the new book “Peril.”

According to a new book by journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) personally studied former President Trump’s claims of vote fraud in the days following the 2020 election and found them to be simple and lacking in substance.

Graham privately derided Trump’s efforts as “third grade” after pressuring the White House and Trump’s legal team for evidence to support the former president’s accusations of a “rigged” election, according to The Washington Post, citing the new book “Peril.”

During a meeting on Jan. 2, Graham reportedly told Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and White House head of staff Mark Meadows, “Give me some names.” “You need to write it down. You must present the facts to me.”
Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee at the time, sent documents to Lee Holmes, the panel’s top legal counsel, after Giuliani and Trump’s legal team allegedly provided documents that allegedly raised questions about vote totals in several states, according to Woodward and Robert Costa of the Washington Post.

The authors stated that “Holmes deemed the sloppiness, the overwhelming tone of certainty, and the inconsistencies disqualifying.” “The notes ‘added up to nothing,’ he concluded.”

Graham voted to certify President Biden’s Electoral College victory after a pro-Trump crowd stormed the US Capitol complex on Jan. 6, saying he had “tried to be helpful” to Trump but was ready to recognize Biden as the president.

Graham declared on the Senate floor that day, “Trump and I, we had a heck of a voyage.” “I despise how things are now. Oh my gosh, I despise it… but all I can say today is “count me out.” It’s time to stop. I made an effort to assist.”

According to the Washington Post, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) conducted a “parallel” investigation of Trump’s charges of election fraud and was unconvinced, according to the new book.

A request for comment from Graham’s office on Woodward and Costa’s story was not immediately returned.
