Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) personally investigated former President Trump's claims of electoral fraud in the days following the 2020 election and found them to be elementary and lacking in substance, according to a new book by journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.

After pressing the White House and Trump's legal team for evidence to support the former president's claims of a "rigged" election, Graham privately described Trump's efforts as suitable for "third grade," The Washington Post, citing the new book, "Peril," reported on Monday

"Give me some names," Graham reportedly told Rudy Giuliani, Trump's then-personal attorney, and Mark Meadows, the White House chief of staff during, a meeting on Jan. 2. "You need to put it in writing. You need to show me the evidence."

After a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol complex on Jan. 6, Graham voted to certify President Biden's Electoral College victory and said he had "tried to be helpful" to Trump but was ready to recognize Biden as the president.

"Trump and I, we had a hell of a journey," Graham said from the Senate floor that day. "I hate it being this way. Oh my god I hate it ... but today all I can say is count me out. Enough is enough. I tried to be helpful."

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) also oversaw what was described as a "parallel" effort to investigate Trump's claims of election fraud and was unpersuaded, the Post reported on Monday, citing the new book.

    Have you noticed that people who have been quoted in "Peril" are not rushing to deny or refute comments attributed to them? I am sure that nitpickers could find minor errors in Woodward and Costa's book (that's why later editions of non-fiction books are updated), but on the whole, it seems they got it right. Nobody should be surprised at how close Trump came to undermining democracy. That Mike Pence and Dan Quayle were the final guardrails to save America is scary.

    Yesterday on THE FIVE. Jesse Watters: "Jesse Jr. stuck his head out of his crib and said, 'Dad, the only thing Biden can fix is elections.'"

    I saw Graham saying that from the Senate floor. In context, he was saying that after the Electoral College certified the vote. Joe was President. It was over.

    "The only thing Biden can fix is elections."

    I wish you could fix your willful pig-ignorance, Hate.

    Ponderer,
    It's hard to avoid being ignorant when a person quotes the political views of crib-bound toddlers.

    Trump's argument is suitable for third grade? I think Linseed is giving him the benefit of the doubt.
