This just in, folx: Lindsey Graham has landed a supporting role in Donald Trump‘s latest legal drama.
Prosecutors in Georgia announced that they’ve opened a criminal investigation into whether the ex-president tried to overturn the state’s election results and how Graham may have helped him, and the evidence against the two cohorts is pretty damning.
The investigation is being led by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who is specifically looking at a call Graham made to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger back in November to casually inquire about how they might toss out legally cast ballots for Joe Biden, who won the state by 11,779 votes.
According to Raffensperger, Graham personally called him to ask if he could find a sneaky way to dump all the mail-in ballots from certain (read: Democrat-leaning) Georgia counties and tip the state, and its 16 electoral votes, to Trump.
Raffensperger, a Republican, was reportedly “stunned” by the call and refused to entertain the idea.
Now, an insider with the Fulton County prosecutor’s investigation tells the Washington Post that Graham’s conversation with Raffensperger will “be looked at” to determine whether he committed a felony or any other crimes.
[Georgia law] makes it a crime to solicit another person to commit a felony “with intent that another person engage in conduct constituting a felony.”
…Someone convicted of soliciting a felony in Georgia “shall be punished by imprisonment for not less than one nor more than three years” (although the penalty can be higher if they solicit a crime punishable by life in prison or by death).
Additionally, Georgia law makes it a crime to engage in “criminal solicitation to commit election fraud.”
Last month, Graham admitted to the call to Raffensperger, but he insisted he was just trying to “protect the integrity of mail-in voting” and said any accusations of criminal behavior against him were “ridiculous.”
In response to Willis investigating the call, a spokesperson for the senator declared the whole thing a politically-motivated hit job.
“Sen. Graham was asking about how the signature verification process worked,” the spokesperson said. “He never asked the secretary of state to disqualify a ballot cast by anyone. The timing on this is also quite curious. It seems to be a less than transparent effort to marginalize anyone who helps President Trump.”

I’m happy to marginalize anyone who defends and supports a violent seditionist.
Nothing will happen. He’s white.
That’s the first thing I thought.. This guy gets away with EVERYTHING.
Even worse he’ll get re-elected in SC ifor another term. Wonder when he’ll drop “the former guy” and run for the WH again himself. He’s certainly courting trump reps.
Someone bring the Lady G his fainting couch.
Fname Optional Lname
thank you for making me laugh out loud! (and now I kinda want a fainting sofa!)
And her smelling salts to combat the vapors.
Lady G’s nickname that i think is hilarious is: Linda Graham Cracker
Lindsey “Palmetto Queen” Graham
Let me guess, complete acquittal of all charges. He’s Republican and well-to-do.
It’ll be a hard one to convict on unless the call was recorded. Hard to believe the call wasn’t for nefarious reasons, but it’s likely to boil down to a he said, “she” said situation.
Sadly, both is it it will probably get off with no punishment. I hope that I will be corrected on that.
Lady G will most likely welcome prison, being locked up with only men. It’s a closeted GQP loser’s dream cum true. I’m sure Aaron Schmuck would’ve loved that before he made his creepy coming out statement a la Kevin Spacey. All three give us all a bad name
Miss Lindsey would clutch her pearls and call for her smelling salts if she got tangled up in this potential legal mess. On the upside, she would have plenty of time in a cushy white-collar prison somewhere to tend to her ladybugs.
Maybe if he were sent to a regular prison , some big, bald-headed dude named Bubba would make him his girlfriend. But, maybe Ms. Graham would like that.
Honestly, I don’t expect this to go anywhere. I hope I’m wrong but doubt it.
Auntie Pittypat: “Oh dear, oh dear where are my smelling salts? I think I shall faint!”
Lock him up.
Don’t exaggerate. Nothing will happen to him. Or Trump.
Oh my! I saw the news article about Graham trying to coax Raffensperger to toss votes to help Trump win. Now Graham will be under investigation along with Trump!
….Miss Lindseybelle is a LYING, Arrogant, F*ckTard, Self-Centered, Hypocritical, Scumbag. @$$ KISSING, Piece of $H!T, @$$ HOLE. She can EAT $H!T and go F*CK HERSELF! I hope that one day she is in deep $H!T and NO ONE comes to help.
The real Bruce
Why does he always look like he’s been crying or about to burst into tears? Even when he pretends to snarl, his eyes betray him. Poor old thing!
Ms Lindsey deserves everything bad that can happen to him. She is an evil person
This man needs to be stopped. Non disclosure agreements need to be torn up and patriots need to “out” him once and for all. He’s a two faced hippocritical blight on the human race.
I’m ashamed to admit that at one time I actually and respected Lindsey Graham thinking he was the voice of sanity and reason in a party that was becoming increasingly unhinged. Boy was I wrong! He’s “muy loco en la cabeza!” (And that’s the extent of my high school Spanish.)
Lock her up! Lock her up!
They say things happen in threes. We got Limbaugh today. Let us hope that Jebus next takes Miss Lindsey and Moscow Mitch in the next few days. If that happens, I will go to church every Sunday from now on! lol
It’s nice we’re rid of Rush, but when it comes to people like Graham, McConnell, Cruz and dozens of other GQP freaks, all I can say is…Karma is falling down on the job, and Covid isn’t doing a damned thing to help her. Not cool.
Of course the charges against him r ridiculous!!!!!!!!! He’s a F*CKING repugnantcan!!!!!!!! It’s ok that “THEY” can do WHATEVER THEY WANT!!!!!!!!!!!!! “THEY” have & live by DOUBLE STANDARDS. If a Democrat did ANYTHING that a repugnantcan does or is guilty of, they scream, rant & yell, throw fits & tantrums, complain, bitch, moan & groan endlessly & NEVER SHUT UP!!!!!!! Only THEY can have it both ways……so “they” think.
