Recently re-elected South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) just announced that he’ll be making a huge donation to what the Washington Examiner described as President Donald Trump’s “election defense fund.”
“I’m going to donate $500,000 tonight to President Trump’s defense legal fund,” Graham said during an appearance on Fox News’ Hannity on Thursday, according to Breitbart.
Graham went on to encourage others to do the same, “so that we’ll have the resources to fight.”
“The allegations of wrongdoing are earth-shattering,” the senator said. “It makes the…Carter Page warrant application look on the up and up.”
Missing in action
The $500,000 donation from the GOP senator comes as Trump’s campaign is in the midst of a number of legal battles across the country to ensure that all legal votes — and only the legal votes — are counted in the 2020 elections.
While Democrats insist that cases of voter fraud are all but non-existent, Trump and his supporters aren’t so sure.
In some still-undecided states, like Nevada, the Trump campaign has alleged that large numbers of dead people voted this year, according to CNBC, and that people who no longer live in the state were still casting their ballots there, in violation of state law. In other key areas, including Detroit and Philadelphia, the Trump camp says ballot counters have illegally denied access to Republican poll watchers.
The president and his team, accordingly, have brought a number of legal challenges and are fighting to raise awareness about the problem on social media. In other words, the president and his team are fighting hard for a fair election. And they aren’t the only ones.
“Crooked as a snake”
“I’m here tonight to stand with President Trump,” Graham told Hannity Thursday, according to Fox News. “He stood with me, he’s the reason we’re going to have a Senate majority.”
Graham added: “[Trump] helped Senate Republicans. We’re going to pick up House seats because of the campaign that President Trump won.”
Graham went on to describe the situation playing out in Philadelphia as “crooked as a snake,” the Washington Examiner reported.
Only time will tell, however, if Graham and the Trump campaign are successful in their ongoing effort to defend the sanctity of Americans’ votes.
