While Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has been taking flak for his plans for an Electoral College objection from Democrats and never-Trumpers, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., considers it mere lip service.
Sen. Cruz is leading 11 GOP senators in calling for a commission to investigate the Trump campaign’s voter and election fraud allegations to protect the integrity to American elections.
Too little, too late, Graham tweeted Sunday:
“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.”
Despite that, Graham added he is looking forward to hearing their charges, adding via tweet:
“I do look forward to hearing from and will listen closely to the objections of my colleagues in challenging the results of this election. They will need to provide proof of the charges they are making.”
“They will also need 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.
Still, Graham questions what remedy can fix the fraud that occurred at this point, tweeting:
“They will also 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.”
Ultimately, Graham will listen, but he remains skeptical, concluding via Twitter:
“My colleagues will have the opportunity to make this case, and I will listen closely. But they have a high bar to clear.”
It all comes to a head Jan. 6 during a joint session of Congress to receive, count, and vote to certify the Electoral College vote.
