Lindsey Graham: ‘I am Begging the President’ to Stop Saying Millions of People Voted Illegally
It was reported last night that President Donald Trump revived an unsubstantiated and unproven claim that millions of people illegally voted in the presidential election. He did this during a meeting with Congressional leaders, spending the first ten minutes of the meeting rehashing the campaign and using the claim as a way to prove he didn’t legitimately lose the national popular vote.
In response to Trump bringing this back up while speaking to members of Congress, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) delivered a statement begging POTUS to with share information he has to back his comments or stop making these remarks.

Following reports of his comments, the New York Times ratcheted up its war with Trump by stating that he lied in its headline. Meanwhile, the Washington Post fact-checked him again, placing him on their ‘Recidivism Watch’ for resurrecting the false claim.
