Sen. Lindsey Graham Stands By Trump As Some Other Republicans Flee

Sen. Lindsey Graham Stands By Trump As Some Other Republicans Flee

“I’m here tonight to stand with President Trump” – Announces $500k Donation to Trump Legal Fund

https://youtu.be/pXY-uIjnYVY

Apart from Sen. Ted Cruz, I hadn’t seen any Republican senators speaking out about the travesty taking place in the states still counting their votes. That is until Thursday night when Sen. Lindsey Graham appeared on Fox News and stated that he is donating $500,000 to President Trump’s legal fund.

Further, he urged every Senate and every House Republican to get on television and tell the story of “the allegations of wrong-doing” that “makes the Carter Page warrant application look on the up and up.”

NewsMax reports:

Vowing to “stand with” President Donald Trump, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., announced Thursday night he is donating $500,000 to Trump’s legal defense fund.

“I’m here tonight to stand with President Trump,” Graham told Fox News’ “Hannity.” “He stood with me. He’s the reason we’re going to have a Senate majority. My race was overwhelming. He helped Senate Republicans, we’re going to pick up House seats, because of the campaign that President Trump won.

“I’m going to donate $500,000 tonight to President Trump’s defense legal fund.”

. . . . “Give to DonaldJTrump.com, so we will have the resources to fight,” Graham added. “The allegations of wrongdoing are earth shattering. It makes the Carter Page warrant application look on the up and up.

“Senate Republicans are going to be briefed by the Trump campaign Saturday, and every Senate Republican, and House Republican needs to get on television and tell this story.”

Amid calls from some the Republican Party is not vocally backing Trump’s election fraud challenges, Graham said “everything should be on the table.”

“There is the process of observing an election that’s being violated,” Graham continued. “Philadelphia elections are crooked like a snake. Why are they shutting people out? Because they don’t want people to see what they’re doing.

Watch:

Graham is absolutely right about Trump’s coattails and how much Congressional Republicans owe their re/election to the president. Many, however, are instead clutching their pearls and chastising the president.

NBC News reports:

Republican lawmakers and officials are pushing back against President Donald Trump’s series of false claims Thursday night about the presidential election, although many did not mention him by name.

Shortly before Trump made baseless claims at a news conference about massive voter fraud in Pennsylvania, Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., said in a statement that once the state’s final election count is “reached and certified, all parties involved must accept the outcome of the election regardless of whether they won or lost.”

. . . . The harshest pushback came from retiring Rep. Will Hurd of Texas.

“A sitting president undermining our political process & questioning the legality of the voices of countless Americans without evidence is not only dangerous & wrong, it undermines the very foundation this nation was built upon,” he said in a tweet. “Every American should have his or her vote counted.”

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., who at times has been a sharp Trump critic, also offered a strong rebuke.

“We want every vote counted, yes every legal vote (of course). But, if you have legit concerns about fraud present EVIDENCE and take it to court. STOP Spreading debunked misinformation,” he wrote. “This is getting insane.”

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan was one of the few Republicans to mention whom he was talking about. “There is no defense for the President’s comments tonight undermining our Democratic process. America is counting the votes, and we must respect the results as we always have before. No election or person is more important than our Democracy,” he tweeted.

Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, a vocal Trump critic who was the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, also called for patience in a statement he tweeted from his personal Twitter account.

“Counting every vote is at the heart of democracy. That process is often long and, for those running, frustrating. The votes will be counted,” Romney wrote, and if there are any “irregularities alleged, they will be investigated and ultimately resolved in court. Have faith in democracy, in our Constitution, and in the American people.”

Former Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa., called Trump’s remarks “simply reprehensible.”

Team Trump is also warning Republicans with presidential aspirations that their weakness now will be remembered by Trump supporters.

BBC News reports:

But Don Jr, who is thought to have political aspirations of his own, reserved his ire for those who may be eyeing up a presidential run in 2024.

He wrote on Twitter: “The total lack of action from virtually all of the ‘2024 GOP [Republican] hopefuls’ is pretty amazing.

“They have a perfect platform to show that they’re willing & able to fight but they will cower to the media mob instead. Don’t worry @realDonaldTrump will fight & they can watch as usual!”

The tweet was in response to one from Mike Cernovich, a men’s rights activist and Trump supporter, who had criticised the president’s former UN ambassador, Nikki Haley.

She is widely thought to be preparing a White House bid in 2024.

Mr Trump Jr continued: “Republicans have been weak for decades which has allowed for the left to do these things.”

His brother, Eric, tweeted: “Where are Republicans! Have some backbone. Fight against this fraud. Our voters will never forget you if your [sic] sheep!”

Apparently, this got 2024 presidential hopeful Nikki Haley’s attention.

Comments

Pat Toomey (PA) said:

“The president’s speech last night was very disturbing to me because he made very, very serious allegations without any evidence to support it.”

Sen. Toomey sees no evidence of Democrats attempting to “steal” the election. Really? He must be hiding in Biden’s basement.

    Rino rats.

    Without PDJT, the republican party is garbage.

      The Good Witch in reply to TheFineReport.com. | November 6, 2020 at 12:52 pm

      I suppose we are going back to being the Republican Party of Mitt Romney and Jeff Flake. Trump wasn’t a mainstream Republican but he was 100% for the USA with all it’s foibles. I will vote for the USA every time. That’s probably why I haven’t voted any D for any position in decades.

      Too bad there isn’t a viable third party. A real party led by Trump might decimate the Republican Party and attract centrist Democrats as well. You would have the radical Left, the inconsequential Right and a whole bunch of common sense, pro USA middle

        Our election system guarantees there can’t be a viable third party.

          txvet2 in reply to randian. | November 6, 2020 at 2:18 pm

          There could be under one circumstance: If Trump abandoned the Republican Party and formed his own, a big chunk of his supporters would go with him – but it would likely be a short term phenomenon, unless he could pull enough to destroy the Republican Party, in which case it would eventually devolve into the Republican Party under a different name.

          JusticeDelivered in reply to randian. | November 6, 2020 at 9:00 pm

          I sure as hell would go with him. Without Trump, the Republican party will likely go back to Rinos ruling the roost.

          The truth is that the Republican party had badly stagnated, and Trump saved them.

        Connivin Caniff in reply to The Good Witch. | November 6, 2020 at 4:31 pm

        Trump is the Republican party. Anything else is total capitulation to the Swamp.

          By that logic there is no more Republican Party if the lawsuits fail and Biden is declared the winner. If you’ll check the House and statehouses across the country, you’ll not only see that isn’t true, you’ll find out that the damage was pretty much confined to Trump. Everywhere else the GOP had a pretty good night.

          txvet, that’s a strange phenomenon, US House gaining Trump Republican seats, various state statehouses gaining Trump Republican seats, and US senate seats were not held by PDJT’s coattails. And I agree with a previous poster that 71 million voters say that Trump is the Republican party now.

    He’s going to have to win re-election in Pennsylvania. He doesn’t want this kind of operation run against him. I think he’s peeing in the wind, because they’re going to come after him no matter how he bows and scrapes.

What is so hard about going to the states that have been STOLEN and demanding a true accurate legal accounting of genuine votes. How many times have GOP won races and the Dems seem to have no problem going to court and getting those election results overturned in their favor. If we dont stop this steal our elections will be no more valid than those in North Korea

    paracelsus in reply to caseoftheblues. | November 8, 2020 at 10:21 am

    This is just a more orchestrated reprise of the Al Franken “election.”
    The phrase that refuses to lay down on the printed page is “genuine votes.”

This is why should Trump not prevail in the vote counts, I will immediately register again as an unaffiliated independent. I have no party loyalty to any party. And if these squishes truly believe Trump hurt the GOP, then I am gone. I registered Republican to support Trump. Period.

    Too bad. California has finally shed enough leftists to start showing some promise again. Besides, Toomey, McConnell et al aren’t your senators. The job of voters is to select the best available candidates in their own precinct, and trust others to do the same.

      You missed the point. The only two senators to chime in on Trump’s behalf have been Graham (who just barely got re-elected thanks to Trump) and Cruz (who just barely survived a challenge by Beto O’Roarke). I have no reason to continue being a Republican since every other GOP senator continues to be a spineless RINO squish.

      Will everyone be returning to “no one is perfect” and “the lesser of two evils” logic? Believe me, I’ll be gone if even so-called “conservatives” have learned nothing.

        I didn’t miss the point. You’ve made it many times. I just disagree with it. I don’t care how you register, I said vote for the best candidate. Is California is better off under Newsome, Feinstein, Pelosi et al? You have one vote. Don’t waste it.

          You did miss the point. How I am registered has nothing to do with how I vote. Being an independent messes up the pollsters and forces the GOP squishes to work hard for my vote. WHERE ARE THE REPUBLICANS RIGHT NOW? Once again, either siding with the Dems in criticizing Trump or slinking away to cower in the shadows. Same old corrupt, Uniparty squishes. THAT is why Texas continues to be a purple state and will probably flip by 2024. Get it?

          Add this to your “lesser of two evils” philosophy:

          https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/11/06/tucker-carlson-gop-establishment-happy-to-sell-out-voters-with-amnesty/

          Even the “new” Grahamnesty has already sold out. These polymorphs are incurable. So it remains to be seen if even Cruz is truly on our side. His first reaction in the primary to Trump’s strength was to pay a visit to the Mexican border to help Glenn Beck hand out soccer balls and teddy bears to illegals crossing the border.

          Nope. I am NOT a Republican. There IS no Republican Party. It’s continues to be a Uniparty with the GOP being the B team.

          Graham has never made a secret of his support for amnesty, and Cruz has always been against it. I don’t get why you think that would change now. Graham is standing by Trump, but if Trump loses, he’s still got to be a senator. Trump himself supports amnesty of some form and has long said so, including just last year.

          A lot of people tolerated some of Trump’s positions because . . . *gasp* . . . we liked many more of his positions/accomplishments and thought (shocker!) that he is better than the alternative (be that Hillary or Corrupt Slow Joe). That’s how politics works, how it has always worked, and how it will continue to work. And, indeed, how it worked for you, too, though you don’t seem to want to admit it. You don’t support every Trump position, including his impulse toward granting amnesty, right? Also, I know there are many of us who were less than happy with his big spending / accumulation of national debt, but he is still better than the other guy, so we stuck with him. Purity tests, in short, do not work on ANY candidate, up to and including Trump. /just my two cents

          Okay, found one senator who is leading the way:

          https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/11/06/marsha-blackburn-stares-down-radical-leftists-seeking-to-target-trump-supporters-with-hit-list/

          Every single Republican should follow her example and demand being added to that Trump Accountability hit list. Do it yesterday! I expect Tom Cotton (please don’t fold) to be next.

          “Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) told Breitbart News that “any amnesty ensures Texas and Arizona and Florida will be solid blue and would join southern California as a once red area.”

          https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/11/06/gop-establishment-rebuked-for-fleeing-america-first-with-amnesty-talk/

          This is why Texas is on the brink yet you “Don’t mess with Texas” squishes just won’t wake up. You ARE California!

      @Fuzzy

      “Graham has never made a secret of his support for amnesty, and Cruz has always been against it. I don’t get why you think that would change now.”

      Graham is the very poster boy for the various “Gangs of…”, the ultimate squish, the most notorious polymorph in the Senate. Yes, it’s not a secret. He is a RINO extraordinaire. Yet you keep defending the squishiness of the GOP as if there is something left of the GOP worth fighting for.

      And as to Cruz, he was my guy until Trump trivialized him so easily that he instantly INSTANTLY became unraveled. So discombobulated was he that he joined Glenn Beck on the Mexico border to help hand out soccer balls and teddy bears to illegals as they crossed the border. Then he campaigned with Beck and his own dominionist father arguing that Ted was the re-incarnation of Moses in our own time. How easy was it to quickly jump ship and join Trump and his Zietgeist!

      You really need to stop and rethink what exactly you are fighting for. It’s like listening to Patriots coach Bill Bellicek defending gutting the team while Tom Brady quickly assembles a team headed to the Super Bowl. I am cheering for Brady to win the Super Bowl and will not care about the NFL at all once Brady retires. That’s how I feel about Trump and the GOP. Trump gave us one final chance to defeat the globalists and his own team defeated itself.

      You can argue all you want about “lesser of two evils” logic and the futility of 3rd parties, but the game now has new rules where we cannot win. We are now stuck with a hopelessly corrupt communist Uniparty establishment. no longer a fringe idea but the guys making the rules. The game you are playing is gone. You really need to change your thinking to adapt to fighting under a rigged, post-constitutional system where laws no longer protect us nor offer us any leverage.

      All patriotic Americans, Democrat AND Republican, should now be getting ready to re-register as unaffiliated independents.
      At least then, the “two” party system will reflect the true illegitimacy of a government that usurped its power by using the constitution to destroy it. “We the people” choose to fight for something else outside of the Uniparty rules. You choose to continue flailing as everyone is leaving the room. Your choice.

It’s funny, usually rats LEAVE a sinking ship. These rat bastards can’t seem to climb aboard the S.S. Lincoln Project garbage scow fast enough. To hell with them.

There is one silver lining to this theft; now, all of Trump’s siblings are eligible to run for the presidency rather than just Tiffany.

Just wait. This isn’t over yet. They don’t yet have 50 Senators. Once they reach that threshhold, you can kiss your American flags goodbye and usher in the hammer and sickle. They didn’t want Bernie to run against Trump because they knew he could never get elected. They just wanted what Bernie represents to get elected.
Anyone want to make book on how far Biden survives? There may be a meeting in Chappaqua as we speak to plan a little accident. Hillary style!
Curious to see if Hunter got a big raise and how much the “big guy” stands to get out of it! Bet the mullahs are celebrating too. Hope none of us have oil stock in our 401Ks or IRAs. It will be getting ready to fall in a major drop.
Instead of the hammer and sickle on a red flag, I would bet the US hammer and sickle will go on a green flag!!

    No “accident” is needed. There will just be an announcement that he’s a had a stroke or some other health event and needs to go into a nursing home. Then Kamala becomes president.

    Hmmm. No. Dr. Jill will not go along with that! She wants to keep pulling Joe’s strings.

      DaveGinOly in reply to irv. | November 6, 2020 at 12:57 pm

      They will 25th Amendment him. I will remove him while setting a precedent of the amendment’s use (they’ve been dying to use it against Trump), it will not tarnish Biden’s legacy (for what it’s worth), and it will accomplish their ends without the public spectacle of an impeachment. Nice and quiet like.

      CapeBuffalo in reply to irv. | November 6, 2020 at 3:26 pm

      Unfortunately, they will steamroll Dr Jill and she will take the money just like Bernie.

F Ms. Lindsay and his 500K. He’s doing nothing. He’s part of the problem.

It’s long past time to get rid of these RINO’s. They only show up at election time to brag about what they’re GOING to do, not what they’ve done, which is nothing. I never thought I’d see the day that Lindsay Graham would be taking the lead on this.

    henrybowman in reply to JOBBOSS. | November 6, 2020 at 3:12 pm

    Right, Graham of all people. The only possible conclusion here is hormones. Nothing else is credible.

      CapeBuffalo in reply to henrybowman. | November 6, 2020 at 4:25 pm

      To Barry and Henry, from a full-time heterosexual conservative. It’s time to put away the little cuts and comments about Senator Graham. His history and some policies are fair game for denigration but his private life is his (whatever it is!). He has shown courage and conservatism on some very important times and issues . I certainly would rather have him on my side than the manly Mitt!
      I would like to see if you had the nads to go after Richard Grenell, Peter Thiel, Dave Rubin or Douglas Murray. All gay conservatives.
      Let’s keep our comments respectful and constructive, OK.

        henrybowman in reply to CapeBuffalo. | November 6, 2020 at 5:56 pm

        I actually have no idea if Graham is gay or not. Hormones is just a common expression in my circle characterizing hysterical abreaction rather than commonly expected behavior.

          JusticeDelivered in reply to henrybowman. | November 6, 2020 at 9:23 pm

          Personally, I have never cared about sexual orientation, except when it was a gorgeous young lady, who I was sorry to not have a crack at. But, ten we finish growing up and are too busy earning a living and raising our children 🙂

You currently have two types of Republican politicians. There are those who are good Establishment worker bees and enjoyed a relatively painless reelection, or whose seat was not on the line. Then you have those who were essentially sold out by the Establishment political machine and who only emerged victorious because they were onboard the Trump Train, to some extent. The former have little reason to do anything which might rock their political boat. The latter have suddenly awoken to the fact that they are expendable, in the eyes of their Establishment masters. They have come to realize that they NEED the voters, to maintain their positions. Of course, once it becomes clear that voters are no longer needed, only control of the vote certification process, they will fall back in line in a hurry. But, they will never be comfortable again.

must be nice to have 500K to donate. never looked at his finances, he marry a rich guy?

Grant’sGhost | November 6, 2020 at 1:43 pm

Third party time

    Yes. If a third party is the only way to go and I think it’s true, then now’s the time. Unfairly, the Republicans have been labeled as racists for a long time. Trump uniquely has much support with minorities. If he extracted himself from the Republicans he could convince more minorities to support him and a new party. There is a small window for this to occur. Minorities are listening to Trump and are becoming aware of how the Democrats have not delivered for them. Middle class people are also on Trumps side, so I think he could form a “Peoples” party and get much support. The Party could also back certain Republicans who decide to stay yet fit the Populist mold. Matt Gaetz comers to mind.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to Grant’sGhost. | November 6, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    I had been looking at that before Trump, it was clear that both parties had become useless leaches.

Any RINO who jumps off and runs from this fight might as well call themselves a member of the NFL….which is also dead to many of us. The GOPe is going to unveil themselves over the next couple weeks and will pay dearly for it.

If Joe should “win”, I just want to see who the DNC will put in place as Harris’ VEEP – it just might be Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. – after they employ the 25th.

    Milhouse in reply to paracelsus. | November 8, 2020 at 10:37 am

    If it comes to Harris being president and choosing a VP, the DNC doesn’t get a say in the matter; it’s her choice, to be confirmed by a joint session of congress. The DNC’s last chance to intervene is Dec 14; until then they can change the ticket, though politically it would be difficult for them to justify doing it now.

      randian in reply to Milhouse. | November 8, 2020 at 10:45 am

      They wouldn’t do it even if the politics was favorable. I guarantee they want 12 years of Harris governance, which they can’t get unless they wait 2 years to formally retire Joe. Harris will be acting President immediately, of course.

      paracelsus in reply to Milhouse. | November 8, 2020 at 10:52 am

      I truly have enjoyed your humor over several years now.
      Harris ‽‽ pick her own VEEP????
      To repeat, I really enjoy your sense of humor.
