Stunning Revelation | Talking Points Memo:

According to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, Sen. Lindsey Graham approached him about throwing out all mail-in ballots in counties that had higher than average ballot signature mismatches. This is a request (almost certainly at President Trump’s behest) to violate the law by throwing out huge numbers of legally cast votes on an absurd premise. He might as well have asked Raffensperger to falsify the numbers. And in fact, I think that is what it amounts to. This comes out in a new interview with Raffensperger from The Washington Post.

To review the obvious, Graham is a United States Senator and the Chair of the Judiciary Committee. He’s also a lawyer. He’s the one charged with overseeing the Senate’s review of who should serve in the federal judiciary.
