Graham urges GA Republicans to vote in runoffs, warns of ‘trifecta from hell’ if Dems win
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) bluntly said on Fox’s “Hannity” to subbing host Trey Gowdy that there’s “a lot’s at stake” in Georgia’s dual Senate runoff elections on Jan. 5th. Graham called Biden, Pelosi, and Schumer controlling Congress the “trifecta from hell.”
Graham pointed out to Gowdy that if Republicans win one of the two races and keep their majority, he will be chairman of the Senate Budget Committee beginning next year. But if the Democrats win both races and the Senate is split 50-50 with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris breaking ties, the senator alarmingly warned that the chairmanship would go to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
“I may not be your cup of tea out there,” Graham gravely told the audience. “But let me tell you this, I’m a hell of a lot better than Bernie Sanders when it comes to your money.” Sanders is an avowed socialist.
The senator also explained that a Democratic majority in the Senate would create what he called the “trifecta from hell” in all the key positions of power, a reference to President-elect Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. This would enable the left to pass radical legislation in virtually every area of government. It would also mean that Democrats would control two of the three arms of American government… the executive and legislative branches.
With Democrats controlling both houses of Congress and the White House, Graham warned, “a nightmare for conservatism” would follow. He said they would endeavor to end the Electoral College and they would pack the Supreme Court changing the number of sitting justices from 9 to 13.
“The winner of the presidency would go to the popular vote,” Graham said. “That means that South Carolina, Georgia, and other states would be basically dealt out, and California and New York would pick the president in perpetuity.
“It’s the end of checks and balances,” he warned. “It would fundamentally change the country as we know it. The fate of the Republic really lies in the hands of our friends in Georgia… I’m worried as we speak tonight.”
Lindsey Graham has donated $1 million to both Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in Georiga. He also gave another $1 million to the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC). The chairman urged every Republican member of the Senate and House to help support Georgia’s candidates with their own funding.
“I just don’t believe the people in Georgia are going to allow this country to be turned into a socialist nation,” he said. “That’s really what’s on the ballot for these Senate seats.”
Graham also voiced concern that mail-in voting in the state of Georgia could swing the runoff election’s outcome to favor Democrats.
