Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, argued Monday on Fox News that Georgia needs to conduct an audit of the ballot signatures in the presidential race there, saying a “civil war is brewing in Georgia” over the fact that the state was won by President-elect Joe Biden. President Donald Trump and other Republicans have falsely claimed Biden’s victory was the result of widespread voter fraud.
“Get a grip. Get a grip. I think he’s lost grip on reality. Yes, there’s a civil war brewing, and it’s just as idiosyncratic as the civil war we had before. And it just so happens to be brewing in the same part of the country that it broke out before. The result would be the same,” Clyburn, the highest-ranking African American in the House, told CNN’s John Berman on “New Day” when asked about Graham’s remarks.
“This country is not going to allow this kind of activity to take place. I think that there are cooler heads (that) are prevailing,” he added. “I thought I knew Lindsey Graham, but I must have been mistaken.”
