Graham found Trump election fraud arguments suitable for 'third grade': Woodward book
By Dominick Mastrangelo - 09/20/21 09:20 AM EDT

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 Giuliani and Trump's legal team provided Graham with documents that allegedly raised questions about vote totals in several states, Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee at the time, sent them to the Lee Holmes, the panel's top legal counsel, Woodward and Robert Costa write, according to the Post.

“Holmes found the sloppiness, the overbearing tone of certainty, and the inconsistencies disqualifying,” the authors added. "The memos, he determined, 'added up to nothing.' ”
