Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Wednesday night urged President Donald Trump’s legal team to actually provide evidence in their court fights backing up their baseless accusations that the election, which was won decisively by President-elect Joe Biden, had been tainted by fraud.
“To the Trump legal team: You’re making all these claims…you gotta prove it,” the senator said during an interview on Fox News. “Doing a video is not proof. You need to take these claims into a court of law and get relief.”
Earlier on Wednesday, Trump posted a 46-minute video on Facebook of him spewing a rant teemed with his usual lies about mass voter fraud and the election being “rigged” in what he claimed “may be the most important speech I’ve ever made.”
The President demanded that somebody, be it the media or judges, validate his false claims that the race had been “stolen” from him and that he was the true victor.
“They know who won the election, but they refuse to say you’re right. Our country needs somebody to say ‘You’re right,'” Trump said.
Biden indisputably won the race, and the President’s lawsuits attempting to argue otherwise have been routinely laughed out of court.
