On Monday night, Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham called the minority leader of Senate Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi of California, Nancy Pelosi of California, and Chuck Schumer of New York Senate a “trifecta from hell” and declared that all three help complete the election college. .
Graham made comments while being a guest on the Fox News program Hannity, which was hosted by former Representative Trey Gowdy (RS.C.) on Monday night. He appeared on the show to predict the political consequences of Democrats winning the January special elections in Georgia. The election determines the two senate mandates of the state and thus the control of the national senate by the party.
“If we lose these two senate seats in Georgia, Pelosi will lead the house, Schumer will lead the senate, and if the president falls short and Biden becomes president, you will have Pelosi, Schumer and Biden.” “This is the trifle of hell for the great government, this is the nightmare of conservatism, the end of checks and balances.”
Graham claimed the trifecta would change the number of judges in the U.S. Supreme Court from nine to 13 and eventually abolish the Electoral College.
“The winner of the presidency is going to a referendum,” Graham said. “That means they would basically deal with South Carolina, Georgia and other states, and California and New York would elect the president forever. It would fundamentally change the country as we know it.”
Graham also expressed concern that postal voting in Georgia could boost election results in favor of Democrats.
“If you expand postal voting in Georgia and allow a single person to validate a signature at an election office and don’t have bipartisan signature verification, that’s a disaster formula for our two Georgian candidates,” he said. .
Georgia’s election elections are scheduled for January 5, with early voting beginning on December 14. Democratic candidates Reverael Warnock and Jon Ossoff oppose Republican opponents Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.
On Monday, the Georgian State Electoral Board extended two emergency rules for absenteeism voting before the January run. The rules continue to use the use of secure absentee ballots and require counties to process absentee ballots one week before January 5th.
The rules do not require the bilateral signature to be validated, as Graham continued to support Hannity.
If Warnock and Ossoff beat Loeffler and Perdue, all major political parties will tie 50 seats to the Senate. As a result, the elected vice-president, Kamala Harris, would cast all tie votes, ensuring democratic control of the chamber.
Newsweek contacted the Georgian Electoral Board for comments.
